Atlanta Drug Possession Lawyer
Georgia Marijuana Possession Attorney
Georgia treats crimes involving drug possession very seriously. Furthermore, if you are involved in a drug-related transaction that crosses state lines, you will likely face Federal drug charges in addition to any state charges. Drug possession as part of any conspiracy involved in drug manufacturing or distribution makes you accountable for all related federal drug offenses. Under the doctrine of conspiracy, you can actually face multiple charges regardless of whether you actually participated in the other drug crimes.
Don’t place your defense and potentially your freedom into the hands of an inexperienced drug crimes attorney with no federal court experience. Contact me, attorney Jeff Manciagli, by email or call my office at (404) 642-9080.
State or federal charges, misdemeanor or felony drug possession
Before you plead guilty to possession of a controlled substance, discuss your situation and your options in a confidential, no-cost consultation with me. I offer extensive experience handling drug possession cases involving:
- Methamphetamine (crystal meth)
- Ecstasy (MDMA)
- Illegal possession of prescription drugs like Valium, OxyContin or Xanax
While marijuana possession up to one ounce is considered a misdemeanor, possession of any amount of harder drugs like cocaine (or crack), heroin or meth is a felony. Practicing law since 1987, I offer years of extensive criminal defense experience, working in both state and federal courts throughout Georgia. Whether you face misdemeanor or felony drug possession charges, I know what it takes to effectively defend you against serious drug charges and the often harsh consequences, including fines, jail time and probation.
Protecting your Constitutional rights
I will thoroughly investigate your arrest to determine if your Constitutional rights were violated during an illegal search and seizure or the resulting arrest. I work hard to suppress evidence obtained illegally and negotiate with prosecutors on a routine basis to get the charges against you reduced. My firm also provides aggressive drug trafficking and drug distribution defense in cases involving illegal narcotics.
