If you are facing criminal charges for drug possession or distribution, you may be concerned that your life is about to change forever. If you are convicted of a drug crime in Maryland, you could be facing years in prison, thousands of dollars in fines, and various other serious consequences that could affect the rest of your life. Even after you have done your time, a drug conviction may remain on your record, making it difficult for you to find a job, get a loan, and even get custody of your children. Maryland residents facing drug charges can strongly benefit from the assistance of an experienced attorney throughout the legal process.
Michael S. Rothman, an experienced criminal defense attorney, can evaluate your claim and give you a realistic approach to limit your exposure to the severe consequences of a drug crime conviction. When you are facing drug charges, our attorneys will work with you to help you obtain the best possible outcome to allow you to move forward with your life.
Our legal team will explore a number of possible defense strategies and determine which ones are most applicable to your case. For instance, the arresting officer may have violated your constitutional rights by failing to read your Miranda rights upon arrest or performing an illegal search of your vehicle. If an officer performs an unlawful search and seizure, the court may prevent prosecutors from using any evidence found during the search against you during your trial.
