Defending Against Drug Charges

Whether you are facing charges for a minor drug offense, such as possession of drug paraphernalia, or are facing charges for a more serious offense, such as trafficking of cocaine or prescription drugs, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side.

At Vander Horst Law Office, P.C., we provide clients with the aggressive, informative and straightforward legal advice and representation they need to make important decisions about their drug case.

Experienced In Drug Offense Defense

Our criminal defense law firm is experienced in defending clients facing misdemeanor or felony drug charges in southwest Michigan. We handle cases involving:

  • Marijuana possession and other drug possessions
  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Drug distribution/sale
  • Drug trafficking
  • Trafficking of prescription drugs (such as OxyContin)
  • Operation of a meth lab
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia

Penalties for drug convictions vary depending on many factors: what quantity was involved — was the quantity sufficient for your own drug use or is it plausible to believe you intended to distribute to others? Were interstate borders or international borders involved? Are there prior drug convictions on your record?

As an experienced criminal defense law firm, we know how to develop an effective defense strategy. Our drug crime defense attorneys investigate all aspects of your case — from the initial search and seizure to your arrest and interrogation. If your rights were violated, such as through an illegal search or forced confession, the evidence may be withheld from the record. As a result the prosecution's case will be weakened and the charges may be reduced or dropped.

For example, in certain cases, charges for possession with intent may be reduced to drug possession or charges for simple possession may be altogether dropped. Remember, if the drugs were obtained as evidence through an illegal search, they cannot be used against you.
