Fighting a Drug Charge
There are numerous defenses that can be asserted in a drug case. Your Fourth Amendment right to be free of illegal searches and seizures may have been violated. You may have merely been at the scene where drugs were found. You may have been caught with a quantity of drugs that was intended for personal use but now find yourself accused of having the intent to sell the drug.
An experienced criminal defense attorney like Ben will thoroughly investigate your case to determine whether challenges can be leveled at the pretrial stage with motions, at trial, or both. Even if the evidence in your case is strong, Ben will fight for you to minimize the consequences.
A Lawyer That Will Help You Deal With Your Addiction
Walk into any superior court in Georgia on any given day, and you will see numerous people charged with drug offenses. Other crimes, such as theft, are oftentimes intertwined with the drug or alcohol addictions that the defendant suffers from.
Having defended people charged with crimes for almost a decade, Ben has personally observed the effects of drug and alcohol addiction on people's lives and the lives of their families. Ben sees his job as not only to zealously defend his clients, but also to help them make sure that they never again find themselves in the same situation.
As part of Ben's proactive approach, he will help you get the help you need, whether it is individual counseling or a more long term type of rehabilitation. Taking these measures cannot only help solve the problem that caused the legal problem, but it can also help resolve the legal problem itself.
