Fort Wayne Marijuana Possession Lawyer
Defending Charges Related to the Possession of Marijuana
Here, in Fort Wayne, criminal charges are taken very seriously. Any person believed to be in violation of a drug law in Fort Wayne or any of the surrounding communities is immediately subject to harsh penalties and immediate consequences both criminally and in their personal life. Legally speaking, the alleged offender may be penalized with fines, imprisonment, community service, drug awareness classes and possibly other consequences. Within the community, this person may be faced with strained relationships, a blow to their financial situation (due to fines and court fees) and the loss of employment.
At my office, I strongly believe that you should not have to face any of these consequences. As a seasoned Fort Wayne criminal defense attorney, I have tried many cases relating to marijuana possession and have proven defense strategies that we can address as a team. If this is your first offense on a clean record, we may be able to negotiate to lessen the consequences or have the charges reduced drastically to ensure that this minor offense does not have lifelong consequences for you. I work with adults, college students and juveniles who have had a run in with the law regarding marijuana possession.
