A Pennsylvania drug crime conviction comes with serious consequences. Anyone arrested for use, possession or possession with intent to deliver to another and found to be guilty will be penalized by our courts with a criminal record, years in jail, heavy fines, and/or possible seizure of assets. Even a small amount of marijuana in your possession can result in serious punishments.
You probably already know that a drug conviction may prevent you from the job or profession of your choice, but did you know that a drug conviction can also have a serious effect on your chances in Child Custody court? The other parent of your child may use your drug conviction against you, and this may result in your time with your child being severely restricted.
Your drug case may benefit from early intervention by contesting the legality of a search and seizure or arrest, or if entrapment occurred. If there is significant evidence against you, we will negotiate to reduce the impact of a conviction.
A drug arrest is a time when having a strong, serious and knowledgeable lawyer to guide you really matters and can make a big difference in the outcome.
