If you’ve been arrested on drug offenses in Pennsylvania, you’re going to need a experienced attorney to represent you.
Pennsylvania drug laws can be severe even for those who are arrested on charges they think there is little evidence or evidence that has been seized illegally. Police and prosecutors frequently charge and prosecute the most serious crimes they can think of, regardless of the facts, in order to scare defendants into pleading guilty to charges they might otherwise contest. Mandatory sentencing laws can put you in jail on thin evidence because the police expect that their testimony will always be believed. I have successfully handled many felony and misdemeanor drug cases throughout southeastern Pennsylvania and I know which documents and physical evidence to subpoena, what motions to file to keep evidence out that was seized in violation of your rights, how to cross-examine police officers and how to negotiate a favorable plea for you.
