Bartow drug crimes defense attorney Diane Buerger searches for defenses and sentencing alternatives. She’ll explore possible alternatives to prison time, including community service and substance abuse treatment. Or, if your case needs to go to trial, she’ll fight your case before the judge or jury.
A “drug dealing” accusation can encompass anything from large-scale trafficking to a few pills sent to a friend. No matter what the particular circumstances are in your case, attorney Diane Buerger works to develop a sound strategy to resolve the issues and fight for the best possible outcome.
In a free initial consultation, we’ll discuss the legal framework and try to figure out the best strategy for your case.
Changes in societal norms have led to changes in the law that can make the rules that apply to drug possession somewhat confusing. Even possession of a small amount of marijuana could land you in jail and result in a driver’s license suspension. Larger amounts of pot or other controlled substances can trigger felony charges and extended prison terms. No matter what substance is involved, a small variation in the amount can be the difference between a third-degree and first-degree felony. Our firm presses for accurate charging and works diligently to exclude improperly gathered evidence.
If a driver’s faculties are impaired by the use of a controlled substance, that motorist faces the same type of punishment as a driver accused of driving drunk. However, the tests for controlled substances might not be as precise as the tests for alcohol, and determinations of drug impairment can be subjective. Some symptoms of drug impairment can often be traced to innocent causes. If you’ve been arrested for a drug-related DUI, we’ll take a thorough look at your case and advocate for fair treatment at every stage of the process.
