Finding the Right Lawyer

Receiving a drug-related conviction on your record can have a significant and damaging impact on your future. In the short term, a charge of drug possession could result in a five-year sentence in prison and a fine of up to $35,000. Even a lesser charge can largely affect your relationships, financial health, and educational and occupational goals. Such a conviction could limit your opportunities long after you’ve paid the steep fines, completed any required community services hours, and performed all that has been asked of you by the courts, which may include serving time. If you have been arrested on drug possession, trafficking, or manufacturing charges, it is critical that you contact an experienced attorney to represent you.

Your skilled attorney from the law offices of Stacey Selem Antonucci will evaluate the investigation and arrest procedures for such flaws as missing data, misconduct, or wrongful accusations on your behalf. Even if you believe your case seems clear and you feel there is no other option than a guilty plea, an effective defense created by our legal expertise is your best strategy for reduced charges or being granted a case dismissal. For all drug-related charges from misdemeanors to state or federal felonies, we will listen to your side of the story and fight relentlessly for your rights.

In addition to our years of experience and unique background, our legal team also believes each client should be represented by a counselor who understands how a conviction can impact multiple areas of an individual’s life.

That’s why we strive to keep our clients apprised of all new information and next steps in their legal proceedings through prompt and compassionate communication efforts.

A Brief Overview of Drug Offenses

Police officers can charge you with a drug offense if you have knowledge of or have been found with an illegal substance. This includes substances found on your person, on your property, or otherwise in your possession. Oftentimes, police will charge you with the highest level of offense, which can be reduced if not dismissed with the help of an experienced attorney.

Here are the three main categories of drug offenses:

  1. Drug Possession
  2. Possession of drug paraphernalia
  3. Drug trafficking - Possession with Intent to sell, manufacture, or deliver
