Protecting Your Rights During Drug Crime Cases
Drug crimes encompass a variety of offenses, ranging from possessing a small amount of marijuana to transporting kilos of cocaine across state lines. The penalties for conviction vary depending on the amount of the illegal substance involved. However, even a relatively small amount of narcotics can result in jail time, as well as damage to your personal and professional reputation.
At The Law Office of Massey McClusky Fuchs & Ballenger in Memphis, our attorneys provide aggressive criminal defense for individuals charged with felony and misdemeanor drug offenses in state and federal courts. We have over 60 years of combined experience in defending clients against drug charges in Tennessee and throughout the Mid-South.
Defense Against Any Drug Charge
Our lawyers handle drug violation cases, including obtaining, possessing, manufacturing, trafficking and selling controlled substances such as:
- Drug paraphernalia
- Prescription medication such as OxyContin, hydrocodone and Xanax
Our legal team has thorough knowledge of drug statutes and law enforcement procedures, which could help defeat the charges against you. When you retain our services, our attorneys will thoroughly investigate the circumstances surrounding your arrest. We will examine the elements of the alleged offense, determining if the prosecution can prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you had knowing possession or that you intended to distribute the substance.
When possible, we will strive to suppress the illegal drugs due to an unconstitutional search and seizure. For instance, in 2006, an interstate interdiction search locating 33 pounds of cocaine in a client’s car was thrown out of court, resulting in dismissal, due to the skillful motion practice of our attorneys.
Thorough Preparation For Your Case
Our criminal defense attorneys prepare each case as though it will proceed to trial, but we will use our seasoned negotiation skills to resolve the matter outside the courtroom if possible. It is important to note that our firm believes in negotiating from a position of strength. We believe cases should be settled on our terms, not the prosecutor’s.
