All drug charges are serious offenses and depending on the specific offense charged, they can carry some of the harshest penalties in the criminal justice system. Drug charges not only can put your freedom and liberty in jeopardy; they can also do damage to your reputation, cause you to lose your job, and suspend or severely restrict your driving privileges. David M. Clark and the Clark Law Office have extensive knowledge of the drug laws and know how to protect your rights and your freedom.

The Clark Law Office has over 30 years of experience in protecting clients\’ rights against state drug charges and federal drug crimes. We are dedicated to successfully resolving your case and achieving the best possible outcome regardless of the charges and circumstances.

As a result of the “war on drugs” and society\’s continual disdain and disapproval of controlled substances, many already harsh penalties have been increased and many additional draconian laws have been added to the books further increasing jail time, fines, probation, and causing the deprivation and loss of constitutional protections.

Due to fact that these charges are heavily targeted and large amounts of resources are used by the state in prosecuting and investigating these charges, it is necessary to hire an attorney that has the experience and knowledge to aggressively fight your charges.

The Clark Law Office has secured dismissals, acquittals, and extremely favorable plea bargains for clients charged with drug offenses. We have a large body of working knowledge and experience with the constitutional protections that protect your rights from unlawful searches and seizures and know when overzealous prosecutors and over aggressive police simply have crossed the line or cannot prove their case.

Because there is such diversity in this area of the law, drug charges include a great variety of offenses both state wide and federally and generally result in a charge for either use, possession, sale and distribution, manufacturing, or conspiracy.

These drug laws that prohibit drug activity can be classified as felonies or misdemeanors depending on the type of substance alleged to have been involved, the amounts that were found, and whether the charges are for sale or for possession. For example, possession of marijuana is a misdemeanor while possession of cocaine is a felony.

We handle both felony and misdemeanor cases for all controlled substances including marijuana, hash, cocaine, heroin, meth, and proscription drugs. To determine the penalties you are charged with and the best strategy in defending your case, it is best to speak with an experienced lawyer as quickly as possible. With an attorney and advocate in your corner we can help you avoid the harsh jail times and the stiff fines that can be levied as a result of your charges.
