Hollywood Drug Possession Attorney

Defense Against Drug Possession Charges ∙ Edward Lopez Attorney at Law

Although manufacturing, distribution and trafficking are the most serious drug crime charges, Florida takes possession charges seriously, as well. The stakes are high, even with simple possession of small amounts of marijuana, cocaine, heroin or even prescription drugs if you do not have a valid prescription. It is essential to work with a criminal defense attorney who can help defend you against these charges.

As a Hollywood drug possession lawyer and former assistant public defender in the Major Crimes Division, I have a wealth of experience defending people against a wide range of criminal charges, from simple possession to major felony drug crime charges. I take a personalized, compassionate approach, walking my clients through the entire legal process every step of the way.

From my Hollywood, Florida, law office, I defend clients against possession charges that include marijuana, cocaine, Xanax, Oxycodone, MDMA, Ecstasy and other drugs.

Drug Possession Charges ∙ Severe Penalties In Florida

The state of Florida takes drug crimes seriously, and the penalties can be severe for a conviction of possession or other drug crime charge. In Florida:

  • If you are convicted of any drug offense, you can lose your driver's license
  • Simple possession can result in fines, jail time (in extreme cases), court costs, fines and other consequences
  • Cocaine possession of any amount is a felony, subjecting you to up to five years in prison
  • Possession of any narcotics for which you do not have a valid prescription is a third-degree felony

Whatever type of drug possession charges you are facing, I will work hard to protect your rights, help you understand your options and fight for your freedom.
