Were You Charged With A Drug Crime in Georgia?
Criminal charges related to drug possession, trafficking, or manufacturing can end your life and your family's life as you know it.

As you already know, Georgia does not take drug offenses lightly.
Many drug-related crimes are considered felonies. For example, depending on how large the amount is, a first-time conviction for cocaine or methamphetamine could result in up to 15 years in a prison. Possession of larger amounts, or possession with intent to distribute, can carry up to 30-40 years in prison.
While many states have moved forward and decriminalized marijuana, Georgia is (for now) holding the line. Merely possessing a miniscule amount of marijuana can land you in jail for up to a year.
Beyond jail time and criminal fines, a drug charge could lead to:
- The loss of friends, family, and social circles
- The loss of educational, career, and housing opportunities
- The loss of your reputation and community standing
We know that you do not want to go to jail. We also know that you want to minimize the impact that your drug charges will have on your life moving forward. We want the same thing for you.

- Will I go to jail?

- What will happen to my job?
- How will this impact my reputation?
- Can I ever recover?
These questions are normal. You are not alone. If you are seeking to regain control over your future and put your mind at ease, the first step is to call us.

Get A Winning Defense Strategy
Every case is different, and every defense is different. However, we will take the same approach to your case that has helped us succeed in countless trials (you can learn more about our trial success by reading our Client Stories). We will look at the facts surrounding your arrest and determine:
- Was there an illegal search and seizure?
- Did the arresting officer fail to read Miranda warning?
- Was there a coerced confession?
- Did officers break the chain of custody when handling evidence?
- Was a search conducted without a warrant?
But cases are rarely won on the facts alone. Rather, judges and juries are persuaded by intangible skills that can only be honed over many, many years. Our job is not only to present a defense against the evidence against you but to tell your side of the story backed by evidence and testimony to create a compelling argument in your favor.
