Athens Drug Defense Lawyer

If you or a loved one was arrested for misdemeanor or felony drug charges, or if you have reason to believe that you are being investigated in connection with drug crimes, it is critical that you retain a criminal defense attorney who understands every aspect of the criminal justice system as soon as possible.

At the Law Offices of Adam M. Cain, LLC, our experienced lawyers have successfully defended students at the University of Georgia (UGA) and others throughout Athens against drug charges in a variety of situations.

We have considerable experience representing college students who have been arrested for underage DUI, underage possession of alcohol, possession of marijuana or other drug possession charges.

Drug Possession Charges

In most drug possession cases, issues involving search and seizure are at the heart of the defense. We will investigate the circumstances surrounding your arrest, looking to find any irregularities in the state's evidence.

If it appears that the police violated your Fourth Amendment rights, we will ask the court to suppress the illegally obtained evidence.

At the core of our judicial system is the requirement for law enforcement officials to follow the rules. It is our duty as attorneys to ensure that they do so.

Drug Trafficking Charges

Drug trafficking charges are often based on unreliable evidence. Prosecutors often rely on the testimony of criminals or confidential informants. Typically, these individuals are only testifying in exchange for a reduced sentence or a dismissal of the charges altogether. As such, their testimonies may not be credible. If we have to go to trial in your drug trafficking case, you can be assured that we will take the necessary steps to show the weaknesses in the prosecution's case.

Our attorneys represent people facing all state and federal drug charges, including:

Federal Charges

The penalties associated with federal charges are almost always more severe than those at the state level. Unlike drug charges at the state level, there are federal sentencing guidelines which give judges extremely limited discretion when determining a sentence. If you or a loved one is facing federal charges, it is vital to have knowledgeable, experienced representation as soon as possible.
