Criminal Defense Overview

If you or a loved one has been arrested for either a misdemeanor or felony drug charge, or if you have reason to believe that you are being investigated in connection with drug crimes, it is critical that you retain a criminal defense attorney who understands every aspect of the criminal justice system as soon as possible. At TW, our experienced lawyers have successfully defended people against drug charges in a wide variety of situations.

Drug Possession Charges

In most drug possession cases, issues involving search and seizure are at the heart of the defense. Our criminal defense attorneys will investigate the circumstances surrounding your arrest, looking to find any irregularities in the stateís evidence. If it appears that the police violated your Fourth Amendment rights, we will ask the court to suppress the illegally obtained evidence. At the core of our judicial system is the requirement that law enforcement follow the rules. It is our duty as attorneys to ensure that they do so.

Drug Trafficking Charges

Drug trafficking charges are often based on unreliable evidence. Prosecutors often rely on the testimony of criminals or confidential informants. Typically, these individuals are only testifying in exchange for a reduced sentence or a dismissal of the charges altogether. As such, their testimony may not be credible. If we have to go to trial in your drug trafficking case, you can be assured that we will take the necessary steps to show the weaknesses in the prosecutionís case.
Our attorneys represent people facing all state and federal drug charges, including:

  • Drug possession
  • Drug trafficking/sales 
  • Distribution/possession with intent to distribute 
  • Manufacture of marijuana/ecstasy/methamphetamine/other illegal drugs

If you have been arrested for a drug crime and need help, do not delay. Contact our law office in Athens, Georgia. We offer a free consultation to discuss your case.

Federal Charges

The penalties associated with federal charges are almost always more severe than those at the state level. Unlike drug charges at the state level, there are federal sentencing guidelines which give judges extremely limited discretion when determining a sentence. If you or a loved one is facing federal charges, it is vital to have knowledgeable, experienced representation as soon as possible.

Defending College Students

Our attorneys also have considerable experience representing college students who have been arrested for DUI, underage possession of alcohol, possession of marijuana, or other drug possession charges.
