Michigan Takes Drug Crimes Seriously
Drug charges vary widely from misdemeanors to felonies which can include

on the type and amount of drugs in question.
Drug charges can include:
- Drug Possession
- Drug Trafficking
- Cultivation and manufacture
- Prescription fraud
- Possession with intent to sell or deliver

offense case when it comes to constructing a legal defense. Our goal is

of your case and to relieve you of as much anxiety as possible.
I was arrested—what now?
While a simple possession charge may appear difficult to overcome, as a
skilled attorney will tell you, any drug case is far from simple.
To protect yourself, immediately after your arrest, or if you have not
been arrested but are currently suspected of committing a crime, speak
with a criminal defense attorney who can keep you apprised of your rights.
Be honest in describing your situation with your attorney to learn how
to move forward.
At the same time, avoid speaking with anyone about your case until seeing
an attorney. Especially keep from giving a statement to police since anything
said to them can be used against you later.
Fighting Hard to Protect Your Future
There may be more to your story from a legal perspective than you realize.
If you were discovered with drugs by law enforcement, they must have had
cause or a warrant to search you. Even if a warrant was issued, police
must only search where the warrant outlines and unless drugs are in “plain
view” elsewhere, it may not be admitted as evidence against you.
Look to Upper Michigan Law if you or someone you love has been charged
with a drug crime. Their future is very much at stake, so retain aggressive
defense from our firm today!
