Drug Crime Cases
I represent people that need help when charged with:

A Charleston Drug Crimes Lawyer understands the drug laws in South Carolina. It’s important to know the distinction between actual possession and constructive possession, and what your rights are regarding search and seizure limits of the police and how the evidence can be suppressed when police violate your rights. An experienced drug crimes lawyer knows where and when police can search you, your car, or home is critical in providing you with the best strategy in defending your drug charge.
Alternatives To Drug Crime Convictions
An experienced drug crimes lawyer knows there are alternatives to a drug conviction. Our courts have realized that throwing people in jail over a drug charge doesn’t solve the problem. Both federal and state courts offer a “Drug Court” program to qualifying candidates. It’s important to understand that some prior convictions will not exclude you from drug court. These programs are designed to assist and work with those dealing with addiction and substance abuse issues. The program also has support from the Charleston Police Department.
As an alternative, some charges qualify for diversionary programs that upon successful completion will result in your charge being dismissed and the arrest being expunged from your record. It is my goal to help you understand these options, determine whether you are a candidate, and provide you with the guidance so you can make an informed decision.
