Drug Possession

Shreveport, Louisiana, Drug Possession Attorney Helps Clients Fight Drug Charges

America is fighting a war on drugs that has been beneficial to the public in so many ways-there is heightened awareness of illegal activities and more strategies used in dealing with the chaos drugs can create in our cities and towns. However, one of the negative aspects of this increased awareness is a hyper-vigilance that, unfortunately, sometimes lands innocent people, or first-time offenders, in jail. If you or someone you love has been charged with a drug crime such as drug possession, contact the [nap_names id=”FIRM-NAME-1″], for legal representation. Attorney Frederick provides experienced and aggressive representation to people charged with drug crimes in the state of Louisiana. People have rights when charged with crimes, and Shreveport Attorney Frederick works to protect those rights both in and out of the courtroom.

Experienced Trial Lawyer Works To Protect Clients’ Freedom

Attorney Frederick has represented people in state, parish and municipal courts who are facing drug crimes including:

  • Drug trafficking
  • Drug sales
  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Drug manufacturing
  • Drug cultivation

In cases of drug possession, there are different charges that can be leveled at an individual, such as:

  • Simple drug possession
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Other drug possession charges

In many drug possession cases, confiscated drugs are an integral part of the prosecution’s case against you. If this “evidence” was taken without a valid search warrant, your constitutional rights may have been violated. Successfully proving this through claiming a search and seizure violation has resulted in getting cases dismissed and drug possession charges reduced. Whether it is a first-time offense or a fourth, Northwestern Louisiana attorney Mark D. Frederick believes in just representation and a fair trial.

Defending Your Rights

There are alternatives to conviction and jail time. First-time offenders may be eligible for alternatives to these frightening and life-changing consequences, such as the pursuit of a rehabilitation program or drug court. By successfully completing one of these types of programs, you may be able to avoid both jail time and a permanent conviction on your record. Attorney Frederick will determine if one of these programs is a suitable alternative for you.

Even if you are not a first time offender you may be eligible for certain programs that reduce the amount of your sentence while receiving in house drug counseling and therapy if you are incarcerated.
