Crimes Related to Drugs

At the Law Office of Lauren K. Johnson, we provide representation to individuals with charges of drug possession, drug transportation, drug manufacturing and drug distribution.

There are serious consequences to drug crime convictions. Some of those convictions can include a lengthy prison sentence, trouble finding housing, determination of government benefits or a loss of employment.

What are the Defenses to Charges Related to Drugs?

Some drug crimes are what we call wobblers, meaning they can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony. That may depend on the aggravating circumstances of the case and the individual's prior committal history.

There are defenses to drug crimes. Some of those defenses include having a prescription for the drugs charged, entrapment, that there was a search or seizure violation by the police officer or that the drugs did not belong to the person accused of the crime.

A criminal defense attorney at the Law Office of Lauren K. Johnson is in the best position to evaluate your case and your best possible defense.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Lauren Johnson was amazing. She explained everything in ways that were easily understood, & answered all of my question. She was respectful, but also open & honest. She started work on my case the first day we met & got results quickly. She demonstrated passion, concern, and showed true feeling for my situation. My expectations were greatly exceeded. I would say she has an incredible attention for detail, & has a real dedication to her work. Lauren Johnson would be my first recommendation to any of my family or friends similarly in need of legal assistance. - Heather

I researched a lot of attorneys and had met with two attorneys before speaking with Ms. Johnson and retaining her. I was facing serious charges that could not be on my record, due to my job and was really scared. I felt hopeless & thought my life was ruined...until I found Ms. Johnson... - A criminal defense client (drug case)

Lauren K. Johnson was my saving grace. I naively thought you were innocent until proven guilty. However, I soon discovered that CPS and family court does not see things that way... - Mrs. G, a CPS client
