NJ Drug Charges Attorney

Drugs are classified as Controlled Dangerous Substances, and include legal and illegal drugs, including Marijuana, Cocaine, Heroin, Ecstasy, Percocet, Xanax, Vicodin, LSD, Steroids, and others drugs.
These types of charges can be won, or the penalties minimized. Many times, drugs are found because of an illegal search or seizure and may be suppressed. In most states, police and prosecutors must have the drugs tested by a lab, and those labs can make mistakes, or fail to test the drugs at all. Sometimes, people are charged with Possession when they don’t actually possess the drugs, for example when found in a car. There are diversionary programs that may help get the charges dismissed, such as Pretrial Intervention or Conditional Discharge. Options to jail include Rehabilitation programs, Drug Court, etc.
No matter the charges, the penalties are serious and could affect your future. You could be sentenced to jail, ordered to serve a long term of probation and pay excessive fines, penalties and assessments. You could lose your job. Your driver’s license could be suspended.
