How to Fight Marijuana Charges
In building an effective defense against a client's marijuana charges, I will conduct a careful examination of the case from every possible angle. I will look for any mistake or violation from a procedural or evidentiary standpoint, such as an illegal search and seizure or an error made by law enforcement in gathering or processing drug evidence.
There are two key strategies that often apply to marijuana charges and possession in particular:
- Challenging the constitutionality of the search that discovered marijuana in your possession or on your property; and
- Challenging whether the marijuana discovered was actually in your possession or whether you even had knowledge of its presence.
Depending on the unique circumstances of your case, I may be able to have your marijuana charges dismissed or secure an acquittal on your behalf.
