Being charged with a drug offense can have a serious effect on your life. Many drug charges carry mandatory prison sentences where manufacturing, distribution or sales are part of the charges, or if you possess more than a gram of a Schedule I or II drug such as cocaine, methamphetamine, ecstasy, hallucinogens, prescription drugs or heroin. These sentences can apply to first time offenders. The laws have become harsher even in cases involving possession of small amounts of cocaine, methamphetamine, ecstasy, hallucinogens, prescription drugs or heroin. You need to protect your reputation, your job, your status as a student and your future. The Cribari Law Firm understands your concerns. Your best outcome may be a plea bargain that keeps you out of prison, gives you an opportunity to participate in drug treatment, or results in a lesser charge.
If you have been charged with a drug offense, an experienced criminal defense attorney who is a skilled negotiator is your best defense. Colette Cribari, a former prosecutor, has spent the last 25 years in the courtroom handling thousands of drug cases ranging from simple possession of less than a gram of controlled substances to distribution of large amounts of schedule I and schedule II controlled substances. She understands how law enforcement and prosecutors view these cases, where mistakes are made by the police in search and seizure issues, and how judges sentence drug offenders. She can effectively analyze the pros and cons in your case and determine if there are flaws in the evidence that may affect the successful outcome of your case. As a former prosecutor who understands the mindset of law enforcement, Colette is able to talk to prosecutors who are often hostile to more aggressive "drug lawyers", so that your side can be presented in the most favorable light for you.
If you are facing drug charges, the Cribari Law Firm can effectively analyze your case facts, put together an effective defense for you, and skillfully negotiate with the government to protect your rights and freedom.
