Drug Offenses

Being charged with any drug offense in Delaware has serious implications including mandatory jail time, intensive supervised probation, and heavy fines. You need to have an attorney who understands the ever-changing complexity of Delaware drug statutes, Constitutional Search and Seizure law, and the experience to successfully represent you.

I am experienced in handling all drug cases:

  • Drug Dealing
  • Drug Dealing - Aggravated Possession
  • Drug Dealing - Resulting in Death
  • Aggravated Possession in a Tier Quantity
  • Prescription Drug Crimes
  • Illegal Possession and Delivery of Controlled and Noncontrolled Prescription Drugs
  • Maintaining a Drug Property
  • Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
  • Possession of Marijuana
  • Possession with an Aggravating Factor
  • Possession of Heroin
  • Possession of Narcotics
  • Possession of Non-Narcotics

Just because you have been charged with a drug offense, all is not lost. In many cases, defense motions can be filed challenging whether the police violated your Constitutional rights during any stop or search of your person, vehicle, or home. In a successful challenge, the illegally obtained evidence can be suppressed and ruled inadmissible at trial.

Moreover, in many cases, individuals charged with a drug offense are innocent bystanders who have been simply swept up in a law enforcement investigation due to their perceived relationship or associations with other persons law enforcement may have been targeting. In these instances, the State’s burden of proof to arrest a person and charge them with a drug crime is a far cry from the State’s burden of proof for an actual conviction at trial. It is important in these instances to have an experienced criminal trial attorney who can evaluate and identify any deficiencies in the State’s evidence.

I am a criminal trial attorney experienced with drug offenses. I know how to evaluate and challenge police actions in any drug case and successfully represent you.
