Did Police Violate Your Constitutional Rights?
Prosecutors and law enforcement will aggressively pursue an arrest and a conviction in drug cases. Too often, they take actions that may violate your constitutional rights.
The Fourth Amendment protects individuals against unreasonable searches and seizures. Police officers must either obtain a warrant or have probable cause before conducting a search or seizing evidence. When they fail to take these measures and violate your rights, the court will exclude this evidence.
When we work with our clients, our job is to ensure your rights are not violated at any phase of the legal process. Our lawyers analyze every piece of evidence pertaining to your case to determine whether there were any violations of your rights. This thorough, hands-on approach has often allowed us to obtain dismissed charges and other favorable outcomes for our clients facing criminal charges.
A Drug Conviction Can Threaten Your Freedom
Drug convictions carry serious penalties, including long prison sentences and heavy fines. In addition to these punishments, a conviction will jeopardize many of the freedoms you enjoy. In Georgia, a felony criminal conviction can affect your ability to vote, own a gun or cost you your driver’s license.
The stakes are too high to work with just any lawyer when defending against drug crime accusations. We understand the law, and we know what it takes to limit the negative effects of these charges. Whether we go to court, reach a fair plea agreement or seek a dismissal of the charges, we will take every possible action to get you a favorable outcome.
