Have You Been Arrested For A Drug Crime?
At Brennan Law Offices, we have experience from both sides of criminal defense law. As former prosecutors, we know how the state prepares and executes drug crime cases, and we challenge those cases and find the weaknesses in them. We provide aggressive defense representation for a wide range of drug-related charges, including:
- Drug possession
- Drug trafficking (selling drugs)
- Drug distribution
- Drug manufacturing (including meth labs)
- Drug cultivation
- Drug crimes in which weapons are involved
Any drug crime, from simple marijuana possession to major drug sales and trafficking charges, carries the potential of significant criminal penalties. Our attorneys will examine every aspect of your case to determine if your constitutional rights were violated and the evidence is admissible. Our goal is winning the total freedom of criminal consequences for you.
Penalties for various drug possessions include:
- Marijuana: Possession of 30 grams or less is considered a misdemeanor with fines up to $500 and 30 days in jail. Over 30 grams can result in fines up to a $5,000 and one year in jail.
- Heroin: Possession of up to five grams is punishable by a two-year prison sentence. 50 grams or more could result in up to five years in jail.
- Cocaine: Less than 10 grams in possession is punishable by a maximum one-year prison sentence; with up to four years if found with 100 grams or more.
Methamphetamine: Less than 10 grams carries a prison sentence of up to three years, while possession of 100 grams or more could result in five-year in jail.
While many drug charges in Philly are the result of traffic stops or search and seizures, it’s crucial that one of the best criminal defense firms in the state is thoroughly scrutinizing all the details of the interaction to challenge whether or not the officer had probable cause for making the stop initially and conducting any type of search in the first place.
When the case involves constructive possession, we will fight tirelessly to exploit all the possible flawed aspects of the situation from lack of knowledge to other involved parties. Over the years, we’ve had experience providing a skilled defense for all types of drug-related convictions and know what it takes to get you a reduced sentence, an alternative punishment or the charges dropped completely.
Our Philly attorneys provide one of the best, most aggressive defenses possible by examining every aspect of your case to determine if your constitutional rights were violated and the evidence is admissible. Once we know all the facts, we provide a personalized defense because our goal is winning the total freedom of criminal consequences for you.
