Drug Offenses

Charleston Lawyer For Drug Charges Defense

If you are under investigation for a drug charge in Charleston County, Colleton County, Dorchester County or Berkeley County or anywhere statewide, South Carolina, it is important to get immediate representation from an experienced criminal defense lawyer. Unless you have a defense attorney who is ready and willing to challenge everything about the prosecutor’s evidence, you may be facing unwarranted charges or heavier charges than the amount of drugs in your possession calls for. Having the right attorney can make the difference between a misdemeanor and a felony. Probation or time in jail. A conviction or getting the charges dropped altogether.
