Winston-Salem Drug Crime Lawyers

Understanding the Complexity of Drug Crime Defense

The charges someone may face can depend on the amount possessed, the intent of the person possessing the controlled substance, and the applicable laws. Asset forfeiture - a confiscation of property - is also a common issue in narcotics cases.

Common Controlled Substances in Drug Crime Cases

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Methamphetamines
  • Barbiturates
  • Altered over-the-counter drugs
  • Illegally prescribed or abused prescription drugs

Drug cases can be very complex, and your attorney must employ a variety of legal strategies to suppress illegal evidence and protect your constitutional rights against illegal search and seizure.
