A Hands-On Approach To Defending Clients Against Drug Charges
At Carter & Foster LLC, our lawyers have more than 40 years of combined criminal defense experience. We are a dedicated firm offering personal attention and customized criminal defense strategies. We understand that every criminal case is unique and detailed analysis is required to properly prepare a strong defense. Our method is to get to know our clients so we understand how they ended up in the situation they are in, where they are in life and how we can help them move forward.
It is important to us that each of our clients understands the charges they are facing and what options are available. We will walk you through the steps and be available to answer questions along the way. Our goal is always to minimize the impact of a criminal charge. We fight hard to try to get charges dropped, reduced, as well as eliminate or minimize penalties, as every stage of the process. We prepare a solid defense and will not hesitate to stand up for clients at trial when necessary to protect the rights of clients.
Defending Against State And Federal Charges
State and federal laws concerning drug charges are similar in many ways, but the penalties for specific charges often vary greatly. Both Georgia state law and federal law include drug charges, and it is possible for the state or the federal government to pursue criminal charges. Moreover, charges may be filed separately in state and federal court on the same set of facts. We are licensed in both federal and state courts, and are able to represent clients in all types of drug charges, including:
- Misdemeanor possession
- Drug possession charges for marijuana, cocaine or meth
- Drug trafficking
- Drug manufacturing
- Drug distribution
- Prescription medication crimes
When your freedom is threatened, you need an attorney who will stand up and fight for you. At Carter & Foster LLC, we will do whatever is needed to protect your rights.
Did Police Search You Or Your Property Legally?
Drug offenses are often based on a police search. Whether an officer searched your vehicle after a traffic stop, searched your home or searched your belongings, we can determine whether the search was conducted properly and legally. Some of the questions we strive to answer are:
- Did the police have a search warrant?
- Did the police have probable cause to search your home or vehicle?
- Did the police have a valid reason to pull you over?
- Were you arrested simply for associating with someone who had drugs?
After an arrest, law enforcement agencies often seize assets such as cars, homes and bank accounts. You must prove that the seized assets were not acquired through drug-related activity in order to get these assets back. We help clients use financial analysis and other means to get their assets back.
