What do I do if I’m facing drug charges?

Attorneys for drug arrests and crimes in the Baystate.If you or somebody you know is facing drug related criminal offenses, seek legal counsel immediately. With each moment that passes by, the potential for someone’s rights to be violated increases. Sometimes, with proper legal assistance criminal drug related cases can be stopped in their tracks. Many times defendants try to fight drug charges on their own, but this is a mistake. Many reason that they don’t have the money to pay a lawyer; many reason that they will get just the same result without a lawyer; many don’t understand the implications of  criminal proceedings. But, as the proverb goes, “don’t be penny wise and dollar foolish.”  Speak to a lawyer right away.

Hire Players for Your Team

Defense lawyers have trained for years, and have invaluable knowledge and experience that non-lawyers don’t. Lawyers spend years learning the law. Trying to defend oneself against criminal charges is like trying to play basketball for the first time against professional basketball (NBA) players. Imagine, after having put on your jersey and laced up your shoes, you are eye to eye with Kobe or LeBron. Imagine, its also your first day on a court. Let’s be honest, you stand little chance. Kobe and LeBron will smash you. The same is true when trying to defend oneself in a courtroom. A district attorney knows how to play the game. Hire an attorney, or stand very little chance. But, get a lawyer who knows how to ball, and who knows how to win.

No case is the same

Good lawyers take type to craft each defense

Each drug case is unique, and must be treated so.  Good defense attorneys should not have a one-size-fits-all approach to drug cases.  This is because many drug cases are “fact specific.” This means that the outcome of the case is largely dependent on the facts and circumstances of relevant events.  Therefore, good criminal defense attorneys understand the importance of thoroughly reviewing, investigating, and understanding all aspects of the case.
