Methamphetamine Criminal Offenses

Retain Skilled Representation from a Paulding County Drug Crimes Lawyer

The penalties for a first-time methamphetamine possession conviction in Georgia can be life-changing. You must act quickly if you hope to avoid heavy punishments. The first and most vital action you can take is to retain a lawyer who has the experience and proven skills to defend you. Our attorneys at Henrickson & Sereebutra have a distinct advantage in drug crime cases that many lawyers don't have.

Our firm's attorneys are former prosecutors who worked for years trying a large variety of misdemeanor and felony cases. We now work to use our in-depth knowledge of the criminal justice system to benefit those accused of methamphetamine crimes. When you retain our accomplished criminal defense lawyers in Paulding County, you are giving yourself a chance to avoid a conviction or reduce the penalties that could be imposed upon you by the court.

Our firm's lawyers share more than 75 years of combined experience. They have assisted clients in thousands of cases and through hundreds of trials. As ex-prosecutors, we understand the methods law enforcement commonly uses to obtain evidence and build a case against those accused of drug crimes. Our firm's attorneys know the strategies and tactics employed by prosecutors to seek and obtain convictions on drug charges. Most importantly, we research, investigate and analyze the errors or weak points in the prosecution's case against you. Once found, we work to exploit the mistakes or flaws to produce the best result possible against your charges.

Dedicated Defense for Narcotics Offenses

The firm's lawyers are not involved in any legal practice area other than specific areas. Their focus is on criminal defense and in fighting for justice for the criminally accused. You have the right to an attorney – make sure you get a good one that has experience, knowledge and a record of success at criminal trials. Our firm offers a free case evaluation so you can understand your charges and discover what defense options could be employed in your case. Where feasible, our initial goal is to get our clients’ charges dismissed.

If adismissal is not legally possible, the next action could be to negotiate with the prosecution to reduce your charges against you. Based on our time as prosecutors, we know how to negotiate a favorable deal with the District Attorney. An experienced attorney from our firm will fight for every possible advantage, from the first step through to the final resolution. In many cases, fighting at trial for a full acquittal is the best option, particularly when the case has errors and flaws, whether in the collection of evidence, police procedure, or other part of the case against you. Our legal team is made up of experienced trial lawyers who are extremely skilled in crafting a compelling defense case for all types of amphetamine offenses.

Methamphetamine Convictions and Penalties

If you are found guilty of a first possession methamphetamine charge, the penalties could include a prison sentence, not to mention the added problem of expensive fines. For a second or subsequent offense, the prison term escalates. Both convictions are felonies which become part of your permanent criminal record. You can be sentenced even more heavily if your charges are related to sales, manufacturing, possession with intent to distribute or trafficking.

Our legal team can employ multiple methods to successfully defend methamphetamine cases. We utilize the fact that the U.S. Constitution protects you against unreasonable search and seizure by law enforcement. The police must have probable cause or a legal warrant to search your person, home and other property. When an attorney from our firm demonstrates that your rights have been violated, it can lead to a full dismissal of the charges against you.

The burden of proof lies squarely with the prosecutor in a criminal case. He or she must show, beyond reasonable doubt, that you are guilty of a crime. Effective questioning and cross examination by a criminal lawyer from the firm can raise serious questions as to whether the drugs were actually yours or that you even knew of their existence.

Don't face serious drug charges alone. Contact our criminal attorney in Paulding County for protection of your legal rights.
