An Attorney You Can Count On To Fight Your Drug Possession Charge
It doesn’t take much to be charged with drug possession in Maryland. In many cases, these charges are coupled with DUI/DWI charges. An officer may have pulled you over on suspicion of drunk driving and noticed marijuana paraphernalia in the back seat of the car, for instance.
I am Ryan Atwell, an Easton drug possession attorney with more than 15 years of legal experience. I am a member of the Maryland Criminal Defense Attorneys’ Association and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. You can count on me for knowledgeable legal counsel and aggressive representation.
Constitutional Rights Violations And Other Issues
If you are charged with a drug crime, I will ask the important questions in your defense. Did the police violate your Fourth Amendment rights? Did they make any legal mistakes during the search and seizure process? Can the prosecutor prove that you knew about the drugs in your vehicle?
I am experienced in constitutional rights violations and other missteps that may work to your benefit. For instance, if the police illegally obtained evidence against you, I can petition the court to have that evidence suppressed.
I’m On Your Side, Fighting For You
I believe that to be a successful criminal defense lawyer, one must be fearless. I never back down from taking a case to trial, and I am not intimidated by the prosecution. I understand that no one else is defending you, so you need me to be your advocate. In addition, I will be your trusted adviser. I can help you determine whether to fight the charges in court or negotiate a plea bargain.
