Is Drug Court an Option for Me?
For many of our clients who are looking not only for a great legal defense, but also a treatment plan, drug court is the best option. We have represented many clients accused of serious drug crimes and helped them with recovery by negotiating a drug court sentence successfully preventing jail time and even allowing charges to be dismissed when the client successfully completes the drug court program. This is true even in many serious felony drug cases we have handled. We successfully negotiated a drug court program in a case where our client had a serious prescription drug problem and was facing numerous 2nd degree felony counts for falsifying prescriptions. In that case our client received no jail time and was able to work on recovery with family. In every case we are committed to work hard on your behalf to ensure you get fair treatment in the system.
