In our recent blog post, we discussed controlled substances and how they are classified. That is only one of the components of a criminal trial regarding drugs. Once the drug classification is determined, the amount of the drug that you were said to have possessed and other factors of the case come into the picture. All of those factors must be considered when you are combating criminal drug charges.

We know that you probably need some help determining how you are going to handle your case. You do have options that you can consider, no matter how serious your charge. We will help you to evaluate each of the possibilities that you have so that you can think about how each of them might impact your life.
