The police arrested you, and the prosecutor charged you with a drug-related crime. Surprisingly, you’re not alone. Statistically speaking, most people use (or at least try) a recreational drug at some point in life. Some who do this get caught. Others don’t.
We won’t kid you. Any drug-related arrest in the state of Georgia is serious, whether you’re caught with pot in your car or you’re busted trying to distribute narcotics. One conviction — even on a single charge for drug possession of marijuana — can have a devastating effect on your personal freedom and your future. Now is not the time to take risks.
People know they can rely on Brian Hansford, the lead criminal defense lawyer at Miles Hansford & Tallant, LLC, in Cumming to provide an aggressive, principled defense and help them get their lives back on track.
Make Sure You’re Prepared with a Reliable Attorney
The state of Georgia has strict punishments for drug convictions related to:
- Oxycodone, Xanax, Lortab and other illegally obtained prescription drugs
People who are convicted of narcotics-related crimes in Georgia are often subject to mandatory sentencing. This means lengthy prison sentences, fines and loss of other personal rights for any drug-related conviction.
Attorney Brian Hansford believes you should have a chance to make things right after your arrest. Whether you go into an alternative treatment program, or we work to get the drug charges dismissed, we will do our best to minimize the impact a drug-related arrest has on your life. Sometimes we are even able to have the drug charges expunged from your criminal record.
