Understanding The Ramifications And Defense Of Drug Charges

Prosecutors in North Carolina take drug charges incredibly seriously, oftentimes hitting defendants hard with criminal charges that promise maximum penalties and damaging outcomes such as steep fines and time in jail. Oftentimes, young people get caught up in the mix, which can result in charges that could end up affecting their futures in negative ways.

A drug conviction can mean a reduction in rights, difficulty getting into college or entering the workforce, and seeing your life plans derailed or put on hold for years. It can even impact common activities like renting an apartment or getting a loan.

At Griffin Law, PLLC, we handle all types of state drug cases poised to affect adults and young people alike in Iredell County. We have 17 years of experience helping people throughout the area defend their rights, protect their futures and receive the best possible outcome for their situation. We can help you too.

We Handle A Range Of Drug Charges In North Carolina

Whether you are a young person and this is your first run-in with the law or you're an adult in the same situation, we understand how you're feeling and what your concerns may be.

We have extensive experience developing strong defense strategies in drug crime cases and have handled charges associated with the sale, distribution and possession of drugs.

Although some drug offenses in North Carolina are considered misdemeanor offenses, many charges can lead to felony convictions, resulting in higher fines, prison sentences of more than a year and other negative consequences. Prosecutors are known for taking a hard stance against offenders, which can be nerve-wracking if this is your first time defending your rights.

Helping You Secure The Best Possible Outcome

At Griffin Law, PLLC, we take a hands-on, evidence-based approach to defending your rights and best interests. We are incredibly detail-oriented and will do a thorough review of your case to determine whether the charges against you have merit and what steps will result in the best possible outcome for you, not prosecutors.

If you are a young person facing a drug offense, attorney Jonathan D. Griffin will fight to keep charges off your record because he understands how damaging these charges can be. If he can get you through a deferred prosecution program or get a good plea deal, he will help you understand how these choices will affect your future and which one is in your best interests. If it makes more sense to take matters to court, he is prepared to tenaciously defend your rights and best interests before a judge.

If you're an adult facing the possibility of a drug conviction, Mr. Griffin will take the same aggressive, evidence-based approach to getting charges reduced or dismissed whenever possible. He also understands that you may be facing civil problems — including child custody issues or the threat of divorce — in addition to defending your rights. We can help you resolve these issues, too, with the same level of dedication and compassion.
