Drug Charges Attorney

Are you staring down the barrel of misdemeanor or felony drug charges? You are about to enter a legal world that very few people understand. It is a complex world of legal motions, discovery of evidence and protection of your rights.

Drug Cases Are Not like on TV

I am criminal defense attorney John Garey. Since opening the Law Office of John R. Garey in 2003, I have had the opportunity to help many clients who have found themselves facing drug charges such as possession or distribution of marijuana or cocaine.

Often, the charges are trumped up by zealous prosecutors. It is not uncommon to see simple misdemeanor possession drug charges turned into “felony possession with intent to deliver.”

If you carry a firearm while allegedly buying or selling drugs, the prosecutor may tack on extra charges.

If you are caught with a bag of marijuana in your car, the prosecutor may add Maintaining a Vehicle to your laundry list of felony charges.
