Drug crimes often carry harsh sentences. Many carry mandatory minimum sentences. Also, a drug conviction can be especially troubling to have on your CORI. Even with possessory offenses it is critically important to hire an experienced defense lawyer to protect your rights.
My name is Attorney Joe Griffin I am a lifelong resident of Massachusetts with more than ten years of criminal law experience. I have built a reputation as a thorough, dedicated defense attorney who is not afraid to try cases.
You should be fully aware of the relevant law regarding search and seizure, Miranda and other issues that are often the subject of motions to suppress. Issues which could result in the suppression (that is, exclusion) of the evidence against you are often present in drug cases, whether you are charged with possession, distribution, possession with intent to distribute, or trafficking. Fully fleshing out these issues and having them explained to you in a way that you can understand, can help to make you feel less frightened and more engaged in the case. I have found this type of experienced representation, personal attention and knowledge helpful to those who need to navigate their way through difficult legal situations which have the potential to impact their freedom, livelihood, and reputation.
Regardless of the circumstances by which you came to be facing drug charges, I will tirelessly work to ensure that you are treated fairly and your rights are protected.
