How We Defend Against a Drug Possession Charge

Given the aggressive and sometimes overzealous approach of police and prosecutors to drug enforcement in Michigan, the facts surrounding your arrest may have been amplified to secure the harshest punishment possible.

Remember that to secure a conviction of possession of a controlled substance, the State must prove that:

  • The substance was a classified controlled substance.
  • You were the person in possession of the substance.
  • You knew that you possessed the substance.
  • You did not have a valid reason to have the substance.

Our law office will examine every aspect of your situation to find holes in the prosecution's case against you and get your charges dismissed or reduced.
