Drug Offense Attorney in Cleveland

Defending Your Rights Against Criminal Charges

Drug offenses often result in harsh consequences beyond just the loss of your freedoms. Your reputation and opportunities in life may also be in jeopardy. If you’re a student, for example, even a misdemeanor conviction for possession of marijuana could derail your education and future. You could also lose your driving privileges. 

Currently in Ohio, a conviction for any drug crime — even if it didn’t involve a vehicle — will result in automatic suspension of your driver’s license for at least six months. What’s more, the criminal justice system is confusing and complicated. You will be facing many legal steps, from the arraignment and bond hearing to pretrial hearings and, potentially, trial. It’s important to have an experienced defense attorney by your side at all stages of the process. If you try to represent yourself, you could miss out on key opportunities to challenge the charges.

You have many important rights throughout the criminal court process. However, if you don’t understand or exercise those rights in a strategic manner, you could end up with a much worse outcome.
