When individuals in North Carolina and elsewhere are accused of a crime, they are often overwhelmed by the situation, feeling helpless against the evidence the state has supposedly collected against them. With regard to drug crimes, even if a charge seems minor, it is likely that the penalties and consequences associated with it will impact the defendant's personal and professional life. Thus, it is imperative to take a stand, assert your right to a criminal defense and protect your rights.
There is a misconception that if a person is caught in possession of drugs, they are either using a controlled substance illegally or are attempting to sell it. However, these matters are not always straightforward, and there is a large grey area when it crimes to drug crimes and available defense options. At Brannen & Walker, Attorneys at Law, our experienced legal team is dedicated to seeking justice and protecting the rights of our clients.
Whether it was during a traffic stop, during a stop and frisk conducted in a public area or in your private residence, if police officers believe they found drugs in your possession, this does not automatically mean that the drug charges will stick. In fact, there are many opportunities for law enforcement to fail to comply with set standards, thus, resulting in an unlawful search and seizure.
Our experienced attorneys take the time to look at the details of a case, gaining a full picture of the situation. This gives us the opportunity to develop a strong and aggressive approach when it comes to suppressing evidence and defending the rights of our clients.
