What You Need To Know About Drug Charges

If you are facing drug charges, you have an uphill battle ahead. The entire criminal law system is geared toward punishing you for the crime, and the community will judge you harshly even before the trial has begun. You need a lawyer who will not pass moral judgment on you – someone who will fight for your drug crime defense to the very end.

After practicing law for more than 42 years, I know that there is more to you than your charges, so I never judge my clients. No one is all-evil, and there is good in everyone. I also believe in second chances and our constitutional promise of a fair trial for everyone. From my Mississippi law firm, I will do everything in my power to defend you from drug charges. Contact me online or call 662-260-6646 to schedule a free initial consultation.

Note: I cannot defend criminal cases in the city where I am a prosecutor, which is Okolona. I can defend cases in greater Chickasaw County and surrounding counties throughout Mississippi, as well as in federal court.

Types Of Drug Charges In Mississippi

Through personal family experience, I am familiar with the devastation that drug and alcohol abuse causes to a person and family. I have the experience and tenacity to defend you from many different types of drug charges, including:

  • Drug selling
  • Drug possession (illegal)
  • Drug possession with intent to deliver
  • Drug growing and cultivation
  • Drug trafficking

I know how you and your family feel. If appropriate, we make every effort to refer you for treatment. In some circumstances, an individual might be referred to drug court. These charges may involve prison time. Serious cases may be tried in federal district court.

Contact The Mississippi Bulldog For Drug Crime Defense

I have been called a bulldog attorney by the assistant district attorney because once I bite into something, I don’t let go – I don’t turn it loose until I have won. That is how I practice law. I will defend you tenaciously from drug charges.

My bulldog demeanor does not come from a mean streak, but from the compassion I have for my clients. It is because I care so much about my clients and the outcomes of their cases that I fight like a bulldog.

Either call my office at 662-260-6646 or contact me online for a free initial consultation to discuss your drug arrest and criminal defense options.
