I've Just Been Arrested and Released for a Drug Crime. They Said I'm Going to Be Charged. What Can I Do?

Many drug offenses begin with interaction between my clients and the police.  Oftentimes my clients are allowed to leave the scene and are advised they will be arrested when charged at a later date.  They become fearful of being arrested and especially worry about being arrested at work.  If the charge is sealed there is no way for an attorney to discover whether they have been charged and are awaiting arrest and processing.  Most charges are not sealed.  In those cases we can begin "precharge" representation of the client and typically contact the police requesting a "heads up" when the charge is filed.  We also recommend records check with the county of origin on at least a weekly basis.  We can assist you if you are in this situation.
