Prescription Drug Charges Can Be Defended

Many prescription drugs are highly addictive. It's one of the main reasons that they can only be obtained by prescription. Painkillers, anti-anxiety medications, hypnotics, muscle relaxers, tranquilizers, stimulants, depressants and other drugs are illegal to possess without a prescription.

If you're arrested with prescription drugs in your possession, you can be charged with possession, distribution, trafficking, illegal use, obtaining prescriptions by fraud or forging prescriptions. Whether you have been charged with federal or state crimes, we can defend your case.

Medical professionals are also arrested on charges of prescription drug crimes. Our firm can defend physicians, pharmacists, psychiatrists, dentists, veterinarians, nurses and others who have been accused of drug crimes.
