Usually, the minimum sentences associated with drug charges penalize lower-level offenders rather than deterring cartels like they are supposed to. If you are suspected of making, selling, using or trafficking drugs, you should contact a defense lawyer right away.
The Benari Law Group knows that the criminal justice system is imperfect, and we believe that everyone deserves an aggressive defense of his or her civil rights. From offices in Media, West Chester, Philadelphia, Doylestown and Norristown, we offer drug crimes defense throughout southeastern Pennsylvania.
Drug Offenses And Sentencing Guidelines
Our attorneys have experience defending every type of drug charge. Depending on the class of the drug, the quantity of the drug, your criminal history and the criminal intent the police think you had, a drug charge can be either a misdemeanor or a felony.
No matter the substance involved, whether it is methamphetamine, marijuana, heroin, cocaine or the unauthorized use of prescription drugs, the charge generally falls into at least one of the following categories:
- Manufacturing or cultivating
- Possession with intent to deliver (PWID)
- Distribution or delivery
Every day, we fight for our clients’ freedom. Our goal is to preserve and protect family relationships, reduce sentences and find alternative solutions to the criminal justice system, aiming at rehabilitation instead of punishment when appropriate.
Your Defense. Your Choice.
Eliminating evidence is the fastest way to keep a criminal conviction from going on your permanent record. We begin our investigation by examining the prosecution’s evidence to verify that it was obtained lawfully. We work hard to uncover every possible angle that we can use to fight the evidence that the prosecution intends to use against you.
We’ll negotiate a plea bargain or defend you at trial, and it is always your choice. We’ll advise you, make suggestions and give you all the information and analysis you’ll need, but ultimately only you can decide if you wish to consider a plea bargain or fight the case through verdict at trial.
