Fight Drug Charges With Solid Defense Strategy
If you or a loved one is facing charges related to an illegal substance, acting quickly to dismiss the charges or mitigate the penalties is essential. Your future, education, job, family life, and freedom are all at stake.
From illegal drugs like marijuana, cocaine and meth to medications without a prescription, our attorneys at Hummel, Lewis & Smith, LLP have defended clients against charges related to various drug crimes. Our lead attorney for criminal defense, Barry Lewis, served 10 years as a police officer. He knows how the police search for and seize drugs, and because of that background, he knows how to combat the charges.
Defenses For Charges You May Be Facing
Attorney Lewis still knows many of the officers today and understands where the county prosecutors will balk at certain plea deals. We have strong insight into the legal process for Pennsylvania drug crimes and know how to seek lower sentencing for those accused of the crime.
There are defense strategies we can use for your case, including:
- Attacking evidence that was wrongly collected or submitted
- Investigating poor police work or college investigations
- Showing your lack of knowledge of the drug or no intent to sell
- Reviewing the quantity of drugs or prescriptions
- Showing drugs were left in your car or home by someone else
- Showing the search was conducted on your property without proper cause
Our attorney has appeared before the judges who will hear your case, and he knows the types of charges we can fight. We have tried-and-tested defense strategies that work toward positive results.
College Students Facing Drug Crimes
With local colleges in the area, we handle many drug crimes filed by both campus police and the local municipal police. We know that good students sometimes make bad decisions. We are here to help.
Our team takes these charges seriously. If your son or daughter is a college student and is facing a drug charge, we will work aggressively to protect your child’s future. We understand that your child has a lot at stake if charged with a drug crime or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol while in college.
Rehab And Diversion Programs Are An Option
While drug addiction is not a viable defense for a case, our firm understands that this is the driving factor behind many drug charges. In the proper situation, we recognize the benefits of diversionary programs, and we assist our clients in finding the most effective rehabilitation program.
