In Georgia, most marijuana cases involving possession are misdemeanor criminal cases because of the amounts most people have on their person when arrested. However, felony drug charges, including possession with intent to distribute and trafficking can result if you are found with multiple bags or containers of marijuana on your property or person at the time of arrest. Our knowledgeable Georgia drug crime defense lawyers will thoroughly investigate all the circumstances leading to your arrest to see if any 4th Amendment search and seizure laws have been violated. We know how to delve into every detail to see if the warrant to search for evidence in your car, house, apartment or dorm room was executed and handled properly and if the search of your person or property was lawfully done under some constitutionally permissible warrant exception. Our experience as former prosecutors helps us anticipate strategy and arguments the opposition may use. We are always prepared to zealously advocate on your behalf with an ultimate goal of obtaining an outcome that is in your best interest and minimize the consequences of the charges on your life.We Know What Is at Stake
