Get A Strong Defense Against Drug Charges

Far too many people end up in jail for nonviolent drug offenses. A conviction can not only lead to a prison sentence, probation or drug court, but also a permanent stain on your criminal record that could impact your opportunities down the road.

At Dobson Law Firm, PLLC, we help people fight drug charges of all kinds. Our goal is to minimize the impact of the charges so you can move on with your life.

Common Types Of Drug Crimes In North Carolina

One of the most common types of charges is possession. The severity of the charge depends on the substance and quantity involved. Merely possessing natural-grown plants such as marijuana and psilocybin can lead to serious charges.

Possession with intent to distribute involves larger quantities. Trafficking or distribution also involve larger quantities, or they may involve evidence of a sale or trafficking operation.

Drug manufacturing charges may involve substances such as heroin, methamphetamine or crack/cocaine. Cultivation charges may involve marijuana or psilocybin (mushrooms).

Possible Defenses To Drug Charges

There are many possible defenses to drug offenses. Examples include:

  • An illegal traffic stop, search or seizure, which is a violation of your Fourth Amendment rights under the U.S. Constitution
  • Lack of knowledge (in the case of possession)
  • Insufficient evidence
  • Failure to read your Miranda rights or other constitutional violations

To raise an effective defense, you must be able to pinpoint these grounds and pursue them in the right way, at the right time. It’s tremendously difficult to do so without legal training.

That’s why we do what we do. Our attorneys are passionate about standing up for you and finding every avenue for fighting the charges.
