arrestedRepresenting Clients' Rights

J.L. Carpenter represents clients facing many different types of state-level drug charges. These charges can include possession, possession with intent to sell, trafficking and manufacturing of a wide range of drugs, including:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Crack
  • Meth (methamphetamine or crystal meth)
  • Ecstasy
  • Steroids
  • Prescription drugs

The severity of the potential consequences of a drug charge conviction often depends on the amount of drug in question. For instance, if you were caught with a certain quantity, it may constitute per se intent to sell regardless of the fact that you had no actual plans to distribute the drug.

Each client and case is different. Lawyer J.L. Carpenter handles each situation on an individual basis, assessing a client's case and his or her needs to determine the best way in which to pursue a resolution. In some cases, going to court is in a client's best interests, but some cases may be best resolved through a plea agreement outside of court.
