Provo Utah Drug Charge Lawyer
Attorneys for People Charged With Drug Offenses
If you’ve been charged with a drug crime, you are facing some potentially very serious consequences, including not only jail time and fines but also a long-term criminal record and driver’s license consequences. You need a defense attorney who is fully familiar with all possible ways of responding to a drug charge.
At Esplin | Weight, we have helped many clients avoid or reduce the consequences of drug crime charges using a variety of strategies. Contact us at our offices in Provo to arrange a free initial consultation about your charges or those of a family member or associate who is currently in jail.
Pursuing All Available Criminal Defense Options
Our defense attorneys defend clients against a full range of Utah drug charges, including felonies and misdemeanors. We handle cases involving possession and/or distribution of illegal drugs such as marijuana, methamphetamine, and heroin, as well as cases involving prescription fraud or prescription abuse.
We are experienced with all of the options for resolving a drug charge. Depending on the exact nature of your case, these may include plea bargaining, reduction of your charges, or dismissal in a drug court rehabilitation program. We have extensive experience with Drug Courts and will look at that as a viable option to resolve a case and gain a maximum benefit to the client. We can also help clients in finding a treatment provider if there is a need.
Although we explore the full range of options with each client, we also immediately begin preparing each case for the possibility of going to trial. Being prepared for trial is extremely important if you and your attorney are going to be taken seriously by the prosecutor.
We will also investigate the circumstances of your arrest to determine whether there was an illegal search and/or seizure, which could lead to dismissal of your charges.
Pursuing Reasonable Bail Terms for Clients in Jail
If you are contacting us on behalf of someone who has been arrested and is still in jail, we can attend the bail hearing on behalf of your client and try to get a lower bail that requires less out-of-pocket cash to get the accused person out of jail.
Whether you or a family member is facing a drug charge, don’t hesitate to contact us to get an experienced criminal defense lawyer working on the case and protecting the accused person’s rights throughout the process.
