Over the decades, Massachusetts drug crimes lawyer Stephen Neyman has represented many individuals accused of drug crimes in Billerica and surrounding towns. Drug-related crimes can be misdemeanors or felonies and include:
- Possession with intent to distribute
- School zone violations
Here in our Commonwealth, drugs are divided into five classes. Class A is the most serious, and heroin is a Class A substance. Class B includes cocaine and Oxycontin. Class C includes Vicodin and Valium. Class D includes marijuana. Finally, Class E includes Codeine and opium. No drug charge should be taken lightly. While some may consider drug crimes to be "victimless," the government certainly does not take that view. Prosecutors and law enforcement at both the state and federal level take a hard line approach to drug charges, and it is important to counter that with an equally strong defense lawyer.
Drug crimes defense usually starts with a focus on safeguarding constitutional rights. A drug crimes defense attorney will scrutinize the circumstances of your arrest for the marks of an illegal search and seizure. A skilled lawyer will also pursue dismissal or reduction of the charges if the charges do not seem to fit the crime alleged. In some circumstances, an attorney will be able to work with the court so that a conviction will not appear on one's criminal record. The strategies are numerous, but only a knowledgeable drug crimes attorney can ensure that you will get the best feasible outcome.MASSACHUSETTS DRUG CRIMES DEFENSE LAWYER: (617) 263 6800
