If you have been charged with a drug crime in Indiana, you'll want an experienced criminal defense lawyer to protect your constitutional rights.

Defending Drug Violations in Northwest Indiana
I aggressively protect the rights of individuals charged with violating Indiana's drug laws, handling the defense of the following types of prosecutions:
Possession of controlled substances. Drug possession cases can be misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the quantity and location of the offense. For example, penalties can increase if you are arrested for possession and/or sale within 1,000 feet of a school.
Sale, distribution, trafficking, or dealing of illegal drugs. Trafficking charges are customarily felonies and require vigorous criminal defense representation.
Possession of drug paraphernalia. I defend cases involving all types of controlled substances, including marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamines, and prescription drugs.
