When a New York resident or someone in another state runs into legal trouble, it's often the case that things get a lot worse before they get better. Where drug charges are concerned, for instance, merely being accused of such offenses can negatively impact someone's personal and professional life in a major way. In fact, your reputation can take a big hit even if you are ultimately cleared of the formal charges in court.
That's only one of many reasons it's better to secure immediate, aggressive legal defense help than to try to go it alone in court. An experienced criminal defense attorney can thoroughly assess a particular situation and determine which type of strategies may be best to help secure as favorable an outcome as possible. Perhaps there is a law or option available that you're not aware of that may greatly impact your case -- an experienced attorney can provide support.
A police officer may have pulled you over in a traffic stop and arrested you after claiming to see drugs on the floor of your car. Perhaps you were at a social gathering when police conducted a search, leading to multiple arrests, including yours. Exactly how the details of your particular case unfolded is not as pertinent to the situation as what can be done to protect your rights and hopefully avoid conviction.
