Drug Crimes

Drug Crimes

If you are facing drug charges, it is crucial that you know your rights.  Pat McDonough and Trinity Hundredmark of Andersen, Tate & Carr, P.C. are among the most experienced, respected, and recognized criminal defense lawyers in the metro Atlanta area.  They are well versed in the latest legal opinions regarding illegal stops, searches, and seizures. Improper police procedures may result in the contraband being considered the “fruit of the poisonous tree” or inadmissible. Winning a motion to suppress on these issues is vital to having a case dismissed. For example, we recently convinced the Walton County DA’s office to dismiss a felony drug indictment prior to trial due to an illegal search and equal access issues. We have had countless similar success stories in Gwinnett and the surrounding Metro counties.

Misdemeanor Marijuana

A possession charge involving less than one ounce of marijuana is considered a misdemeanor. Misdemeanor charges can result in penalties that include jail time, loss of driving privileges, fines and a criminal record. If you or a loved one has been charged with misdemeanor drug possession, it is imperative that you find the right attorney that will strive to get your case dismissed and arrest restricted.

Other Drug Offenses

The defense team at Andersen, Tate & Carr, P.C. has handled countless illegal drug cases for our clients, including those involving marijuana, prescription drugs, methamphetamine, ecstasy, cocaine and heroin as well as other schedule I, II, III, IV drugs under Georgia law.

Our attorneys are experienced in defending clients facing charges for possession, possession with intent to distribute, trafficking as well as forgery of prescription drugs, driving under the influence of a controlled substance, and deposit account fraud.

Understanding Your Rights

In all drug cases, it is imperative to research the validity of the stop, pat down, search, seizure or incriminating statements, and to file the appropriate motions to suppress the same. In addition, the defense of equal access, that someone else had the same or similar access to the drugs in question, is a critical issue to investigate. Often, our drug cases are won prior to trial through our extensive motion practice.

If you have been charged with a misdemeanor or felony drug or drug related charge, Andersen, Tate & Carr, P.C.'s experienced criminal defense attorneys will vigorously protect you rights striving for a dismissal and help eliminate or at least minimize charges and penalties.
