When accused of possession of drugs or drug paraphernalia, one of the biggest mistakes people make is to allow a police officer to search their home or cars without a warrant. They assume that doing so will make them appear less guilty, when in reality, it is inviting the police to search and seize evidence. Sometimes, this is the only opportunity the police will have to obtain the evidence they need because they have too little information to get a warrant.

Protecting Your Freedom and Your Good Name
Our firm knows how to put together a strong defense that can protect your freedom and your good name. Each of our Pittsburgh drug possession defense lawyers has more than 30 years of experience. One of our lead attorneys is a former federal prosecutor. Our experience helps us anticipate the prosecution's strategies and prepare challenges that can weaken their case.
When you choose our law firm, we will begin by asking questions about the case and investigating the answers to help us understand the situation. How did the police obtain the evidence against you? Did they violate any constitutional rights? Are the drugs even yours, or do you live with a roommate who uses? Were you charged with a more serious drug possession offense than the situation warranted? If the drugs were in your car, did the police officer have reasonable suspicion to pull you over? We will act on your behalf to put together an appropriate defense strategy tailored to achieve the best possible outcome in your case.
