Many different factors impact what options you have in a drug case. The quantity of drugs, the type of substance and any extenuating factors can all play a part in how the prosecution handles your case. We can evaluate the situation to figure out what we might be able to work out on your behalf.

The majority of criminal cases don’t go through a jury trial. They are resolved through pre-trial resolutions, such as plea deals.
