Utah's drug laws are a lot broader than many people realize. For example, did you know that sharing a controlled pain pill with a friend who is suffering from a serious illness is just as illegal as sharing a joint? A drug charge — even one not involving a driving offense — can also result in a six-month suspension of your driver's license.
Knowledgeable Defense From A Former Cop
Greg S. Law, our founding attorney, is a former police officer trained and experienced as a drug recognition expert (DRE). Over the course of his career in law enforcement, Greg has investigated countless drug crimes and learned firsthand the tactics police employ to put suspects in jail. As a Utah drug charges attorney, he also understands how and where police tend to make mistakes that violate those suspects' rights.
We always conduct an independent investigation of the facts and closely scrutinize the state's case to give our clients their best chance for the best possible result. Call or contact our law firm online for a free initial consultation and learn more about how our experience can benefit you.
Defending A Spectrum Of Drug Charges
Whether you have been charged with possession, distribution or trafficking of illegal or prescription drugs, the consequences of a conviction could negatively impact your life for years or even decades. Felonies for sales or manufacturing offenses carry mandatory minimum prison terms in many cases. In addition, these penalties can also be greatly increased for offenses occurring within 1,000 feet of a hospital, park, school or other places where children gather. This is true even if the drugs were used or sold in a private home that is within 1,000 feet of one of these locations.
Take no chances. At the offices of Greg S. Law, PLLC, our goal is always to secure our clients' freedom through an acquittal or dismissal of charges. While we are not always able to achieve this goal in every case, the diligent preparation and aggressive approach we employ consistently produces impressive results.
At the offices of Greg S. Law, PLLC, we provide aggressive drug crimes defense on behalf of adults and juveniles throughout the state of Utah. Our Utah drug charges attorneys represent clients who have been arrested for misdemeanor offenses such as possession of marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamines and synthetic drugs, heroin or drug paraphernalia, and those who have been charged with felonies at the federal level, including drug manufacturing, or trafficking and distribution charges. We also handle cases related to:
- Asset forfeiture
- Prescription drug offenses
- Drug-free zone violations
Fight To Get Your Felony Charges Reduced
As a component of Utah's new prison reform laws, effective October 1, 2015, simple possession charges which were once prosecuted as a third degree felony may now be charged as a class A misdemeanor. The state may still charge a felony if the prosecutor determines the amount in possession was likely meant for distribution. If you are facing charges that include intent to distribute, it is critical to have an attorney who will fight aggressively to reduce the charge to a misdemeanor, if possible.
