Drug Crimes

Drug and narcotics offenses range from simple drug possession to narcotics trafficking and importation. Conviction can result in strict penalties including fines and jail time. Whether you are charged by the State of Louisiana or the federal government, a drug charge means you need experienced help.

Our law firm often performs an intensive investigation of the facts surrounding drug charges so that we can effectively build a case in your defense. Contact us now for a free consultation and evaluation of your case.

Whether the charge is drug possession, operating a meth lab or selling prescription drugs on the street, drug cases almost always rely on the ability of the prosecution to present physical evidence that was obtained in a legal search.

In order for a law enforcement official to seize drugs, drug paraphernalia or other evidence and use it against you in court, they must comply with their own regulations and they may not violate your constitutional rights.

If you are facing a drug charge, we will investigate the actions taken by officers during the search or your arrest, and we will challenge any evidence that was obtained illegally.

  • Drug possession (Including, but not limited to, marijuana and marijuana plants, heroin, cocaine, meth labs, methamphetamine production, date rape drugs, prescription pills)
