Facing Drug Charges?
Phoenix Drug Lawyer Can Help Get Charges Reduced or Dropped
Drug crimes are among the most common criminal offenses in Phoenix. They can include anything from possession to distribution and trafficking. The severity of the charges and the penalties you face depend largely on the type of crime you are accused of. Additionally, the kind and amount of substance involved also determines charge severity. Drug charges are criminal charges. This means a conviction may result in probation, heavy fines and jail time.
If you are being investigated or have already been charged, it is important that you contact a Phoenix drug lawyer as soon as possible. In drug investigations, law enforcement often attempts to gather as much information as possible from people who are unaware of their right to remain silent, or who are intimidated or mislead by law enforcement about the benefits of “cooperating” with the investigation. Thus, trying to deal with the police on your own, without consulting an attorney, is a dangerous game. Moreover, evidence and witnesses tend to disappear quickly when it comes to drug offenses. Thus, the faster you retain a defense attorney, the better it will be for your case. Cliff Levenson is a Phoenix drug lawyer with a record of success. He may be able to help get your charges reduced or dropped altogether.
