Millions of Americans are in jail for drug-related crimes, many of them simple possession charges. This represents a significant problem for American society, but on a smaller level, it demonstrates that prosecutors are not shy about pursuing drug charges against defendants.

There are a wide range of crimes that fall under the category of “drug-related.” The sentences you could be facing for these crimes range from probation to lengthy prison terms. It depends on the seriousness of the charges, as well as the skill of your criminal defense attorneys.
At The Cochran Firm, we’ve represented clients who have been charged with:
This is obviously not an exhaustive list, and if you don’t see the specific crime with which you’ve been charged, this does not mean we’re unable to help. You should still speak with our criminal defense attorneys about your case.
The Importance of Good Representation
Prosecutors often push for strict sentences in drug cases because defendants tend not to have the resources to afford sound legal representation. As such, these cases become fertile ground for district attorneys to burnish reputations as “tough on crime.”
At The Cochran Firm, our criminal defense attorneys level the playing field. We understand prosecutorial tactics, and we know how to defend those charged with drug-related offenses.
We will help you by:
- Thoroughly investigating your case
- Vigorously cross-examining witnesses and casting a critical eye on the state’s evidence such a field testing
- Making sure your rights are protected from the moment you’re arrested
- Making a compelling case for a not guilty verdict
- If necessary, entering into a plea agreement on your behalf that looks out for your rights
It’s not an exaggeration to say that a serious drug charge can ruin your life. When the stakes are so high, you need an ally on your side who understands the significance of the moment. We do. And we’re committed to you.
