Mercy Law PC  handles a range of crimes from traffic violations, misdemeanors and felony charges

Drug Possession and Distribution

Drug cases are incredibly complicated because they involve the entire range of local, state, and federal laws.  Federal prosecutors can take the lead or can allow local prosecutors to file criminal charges.  While federal prosecutors tend to focus on drug manufacturing, transportation, and international trafficking, local prosecutors still have the ability to pursue these charges.  If you’ve been targeted by a drug investigation, it is important that you act quickly to preserve your rights and options.

Drug Penalties

State and federal penalties for drug offenses are rightfully criticized as being unduly harsh. A drug conviction can follow you for life.  Even lower level drug offenses, like possession of a small quantity of drugs, can impact a person’s ability to access student loans, pursue security clearances, and continue working in their chosen profession.  With such extreme penalties, it is vital that you have independent representation to ensure that you are not the subject of an overzealous prosecutor.
