If you have been charged with any type of drug offense there is a very good chance you and facing a difficult and long legal battle. It is vital that you not navigate these waters alone. You need legal representation that not only understands how to prepare and present an effective defense but also is intimately aware of police procedures in drug investigations.
When an officer charges someone with a drug offense there is almost always one thing for certain: either a search or seizure (or both) has occurred. A traffic stop, for example, is a seizure of your person. A lot of “consensual” encounters are not entirely consensual. The Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution, Article I, Section 7 of the Tennessee Constitution and Section 10 of the Kentucky Constitution all guard the people from unreasonable search and seizures. If you were stopped and/or searched by the police and were then charged with a drug offense these documents and subsequent case law demand that those police actions be reasonable?
But, how can you tell if you have been treated reasonably in your case? This can be done only through a careful examination of the facts of your case. I can do that as very few attorneys can: through not only the eyes of an attorney but also through the eyes of a law enforcement officer. I had to go by the rules governing searches and seizures for almost twenty years. I can put this valuable experience on your side! Call me today for a free consultation.
