Middlesex County NJ Drug Charges Lawyer
Drug Crimes Defense Attorneys in Edison, New Jersey
As a result of the importance that our society places on the importance of minimizing drug and narcotics activity, law enforcement targets drug crimes and prosecutes them aggressively. Drug convictions include the severe and immediate penalties of long-term incarceration, steep monetary fines, probation, mandatory drug testing and possibly in-patient treatment. Most people convicted of drug charges often find the long-term effects of conviction to be even more severe. Drug crime convictions remain on your permanent criminal record, thereby limiting your educational, employment, financial and professional opportunities indefinitely.
If you or your loved one has been arrested on suspicion of a drug offense, then it is vital that you immediately seek to protect your rights. A skilled criminal defense lawyer will greatly increase your chances of avoiding the grave consequences that you are facing.
