As a DUI lawyer and DWI attorney, the Nugent Law team specializes in analyzing the prosecution’s evidence against you and attacks any weakness in the state’s case, including illegal police tactics.

Sometimes, people are charged with Possession when they don’t actually possess the drugs, for example, when the substances are found in a vehicle. Beyond proving your innocence and failures of the prosecution to prove their case, Mr. Nugent fights to keep you out of jail. Alternatives to incarceration include Diversionary Programs that may help get the charges dismissed, Rehabilitation Programs, Drug Court, and other options.
