It's important you tell us all the facts of your case. Regardless of whether you were illegally in possession of Percocet, Vicodin or OxyContin, Valium, or Hydrocodone, we examine your facts while developing an effective defense. Depending on the facts of your case, we may be able to:

  • Suppress evidence obtained by an unreasonable or illegal search and seizure

  • Suppress evidence obtained through an invalid search warrant

An Illegal Drug Possession Conviction Does Not Mean Prison Time

If you have been convicted on prescription drug charges, you have options other than jail time. Connecticut offers several alternatives to jail, including many types of aggressive drug treatment programs. If you qualify for these programs, you may be able to avoid a drug conviction on your record. You may be eligible for these programs, even if you are a multiple offender or have no health insurance.
