Drug Charges Can Have Long-Lasting Effects On Your Life
Illegal drugs carry a stigma in our society, even when they are used sparingly. A person charged with selling or manufacturing drugs can face serious consequences, and even simply being found to have drugs on your person can result in penalties disproportionate to the alleged offense. That's why it's crucial to present a strong defense in court.

Legal Support For A Wide Range Of Drug-Related Charges
Our firm defends people who are accused of possessing, distributing and/or manufacturing a wide range of controlled substances, including:
Connecticut Takes Marijuana Charges Seriously
While other states have reduced enforcement of marijuana laws or legalized marijuana entirely, Connecticut still aggressively enforces the prohibition on this drug. This can result in surprisingly harsh sentences for even casual users charged only with possession. There are also significant motor vehicle and insurance consequences; you can even lose your driver's license in certain cases. In Connecticut, some prosecutors are known to seek jail time for minors and adults in possession of marijuana or other drugs. Whether you are a minor or an adult, we will help you present the strongest defense possible in your case.
Furthermore, possession of a controlled substance can lead to the suspension of your driver's license, and the use of any drug while driving can lead to charges of operating while under the influence (OUI).
