Fighting Drug Charges
If you have been charged with a drug crime in Colorado state courts, or if your child has been arrested for alleged drug activity, the best way to protect your rights is to work with an experienced attorney — someone who understands how drug cases are prosecuted and who will make certain that your rights are properly protected.
At the McAdams Law Office in Greeley, we do just that. Our founding attorney Bill McAdams uses more than 16 years of experience to assist people facing drug charges. This experience includes work as a former prosecutor.
We represent people charged with a wide range of drug offenses, both felonies and misdemeanors, in Colorado state courts. These offenses involve a wide range of drug paraphernalia and drugs:
- Prescription pills
- Methamphetamine (meth)
Defending Your Rights
Many drug offense cases involve complex issues of criminal procedure. Your attorney must have the experience necessary to determine whether search and seizure violated your constitutional rights. From determining whether there was reasonable suspicion to pull over the car or probable cause for the search, your attorney must hold the police accountable at every step of the way.
At the McAdams Law Office, we fight aggressively to protect your rights. We make sure that the warrant was valid, that the scope of the search was limited to the scope of the warrant, that questioning did not violate your Miranda rights, and that use of confidential informants was constitutional. Together, we will explore every fact to help you build a strong and successful case.
The Consequences Of A Drug Conviction
For many people, the consequences of a drug offense conviction go far beyond jail time, fines and community service. A conviction can also have a lasting impact on your ability to get a job. It may prohibit you from receiving federal student loan financial aid for a minimum of one year. A drug offense can also lead to driver’s license suspension.
We understand the laws regarding drug offenses from both a prosecutor’s perspective as well as a criminal defense attorney. There are options for those who have been accused of drug crimes, and it’s important to work with an attorney who has comprehensive knowledge and experience in alternative resolutions as well as traditional methods of reducing charges. Whether we utilize the Wobbler Law to get the charges reduced to a misdemeanor, or we pursue drug court, there are many options available.
The best way to learn about which consequences you may face is to speak directly with a lawyer regarding the drug charges you face. Contact the McAdams Law Office by calling 970-573-7765 or by completing our online contact form to schedule a free initial consultation with an attorney.
