Drug Possession Defense Attorney Murfreesboro, TN
Tennessee’s laws are unforgiving to anyone who is convicted of a drug offense. The world outside of the criminal justice system, too, is making it nearly impossible for anyone with a drug conviction to find a good apartment, obtain a loan or even get asked to interview for jobs perfectly tailored to their experience and skill sets. If you already hold a commercial driver’s license (CDL) or professional license, a drug conviction could even mean the end of your professional career.
Mindful of how high the stakes are for people facing drug charges, we provide aggressive representation at every stage of the criminal justice process. We are equally committed to giving clients straight answers, a clear analysis of their defense options and nonjudgmental support at all times. With your consent, we are also willing to work with your family or loved ones to make sure that everyone understands how your case is progressing.
Drug-related charges we can assist you with include:
- Simple possession
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
- Drug possession with intent to sell or deliver
- Drug manufacturing
- Illegal possession of prescription drugs
- Civil forfeiture proceedings (asset seizures)
- Weapons charges (drug sentence enhancements)
- Possession of marijuana
For college students, even a conviction for simple marijuana possession could lead to jail time and the loss of eligibility for federal student loan funding. Our criminal defense lawyers have helped many students from Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) and other institutions. We have also represented students arrested on drug charges at the annual Bonnaroo Music Festival in Manchester.
Aggressive Criminal Defense of Drug Possession Charges Seeking the Best Possible Result in Every Case
Drug possession charge clients have several possible defenses. Important questions our lawyers will seek to answer include:
- Did the officers have probable cause to stop you or your car?
- Were both the nature and scope of law enforcement’s search legally justified?
- Were the drugs found on your person, near you or somewhere else?
- Did the officers follow proper arrest procedures?
- Did all questioning stop when you invoked your right to have an attorney?
Through a careful analysis of all the facts and possible defenses, we have been able to secure placements in drug court diversion programs, dismissals, reduced charges, favorable plea agreements and acquittals for many of our former clients. And while no law firm can promise certain results in any case, we can guarantee you this: Achieving the best possible outcome for you or your loved one is what we’ll focus on from start to finish.
