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.At the offices of Greg S. Law, our goal is always to secure our clients’ freedom through an acquittal or dismissal of drug charges. Mr. Law uses his experience as a former police drug recognition expert (DRE) to deal effectively with law enforcement and prosecutors.

Drug Charges Attorney In Salt Lake City
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 investigated countless drug crimes and learned firsthand the tactics police employ to put suspects in jail. He also understands how and where police tend to make mistakes that violate those suspects’ rights.
Today, our attorneys represent individuals who have been charged with the illegal possession or distribution of legal drugs such as Ambien, Xanax, Oxycontin, Vicodin, Percocet, morphine, Valium and a range of antianxiety medications. We also represent individuals who have been charged with possession, sales and other offenses involving illegal drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin and methamphetamines.
Penalties are more severe than many people realize, with felonies for sales or manufacturing offenses carrying mandatory minimum prison terms in many cases. In addition, these penalties can also be greatly increased or enhanced by other factors, as is the case with 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.
