Georgia Drug Defense
Atlanta Drug Charge Attorney
If you have been arrested on a drug charge in Georgia, you want to do everything you can to reduce the charges and minimize the potential consequences while you fight for your rights in court. Having an experienced trial lawyer at your side makes all the difference. Attorney Douglas B. Chanco handles a wide range of felony and misdemeanor drug charges, including cocaine, amphetamine, prescription drugs and marijuana possession. When you are charged with a drug offense in GA, there are a number of things to look at in preparing your defense. We will conduct a comprehensive investigation into your arrest, including whether or not the search warrant was properly executed. If there were mistakes made in proper warrant procedure, you could have the evidence excluded or even have your entire case dismissed. Handling felony and misdemeanor drug charges in courts throughout Georgia, we handle a number of different drug crimes, including:
- Georgia Drug Possession
- Trafficking of Illicit Drugs in the State of Georgia
- Manufacturing of Illicit Drugs
- Drug Possession with the Intent to Distribute
- Prescription Forgery
We also handle cases involving a wide range of narcotics, including marijuana, methamphetamines, cocaine, heroin and prescription drugs. Many people believe they have no right to refuse police searches or questioning, but that is not true. You are never required to speak with the police. Unless a warrant is presented, you can refuse to be searched. You can also refuse to allow your vehicle to be searched. In order to receive the best possible results for our clients, we prepare every drug case as though it was going to be a trial. While we are open to all opportunities to reach a favorable resolution through negotiation, we are not afraid to protect the rights of our clients by advocating in court. We will never just reach for an easy settlement that is not in your best interest. Many times drug cases center around defenses that can be raised in motion hearings, therefore we always prepare to litigate in an attempt to exclude evidence from being used against you in your case.
Drug offenses are very serious and an experienced defense attorney can raise objection which can result in a favorable verdict or even your case being dismissed. Call 404-250-3206 to discuss your case with Attorney Chanco.
