With the anticipation of heavier drug sentences that we discussed in our previous blog post, it is easy to understand why we are telling defendants that working hard on their defense is not optional. Anyone who is facing drug charges is facing potentially serious penalties.
We understand why you might feel like putting off your defense planning. Thinking about your defense makes the charges seem a bit more real. Drug charges are something that many people just want to ignore, but this isn’t a good idea since they aren’t going to just go away.
There are several things that we have to think about when you are facing drug charges. One of these is the type of charge that you are facing. More serious drug charges might include more complex elements. Taking these elements into consideration one at a time and determining what options you have to answer each point can help you to plan your defense strategy.
We can help you to review the options that you have for handling your case. Your case has unique elements that apply only to your case. We have to come up with an individualized defense strategy that you feel is in your best interest.
The options and answers for a drug defense aren’t always easy, but we are able to work through the possible options with you so that you know what to expect. Throughout the process, we will take the goals of your defense into account. This lets us know what types of avenues we need to pursue for your defense.
