The Stakes Are High

Many otherwise law-abiding people use some drugs recreationally. Many young people are introduced and become involved with drugs at some point in their youth. If you are picked up on a drug charge, whether that charge is distribution or simple drug possession, you could be facing serious consequences. A drug crime conviction can affect your life for years to come. You can have great difficulty finding a job, housing, even getting financial aid to go to college!

Drug crimes are among the most serious criminal charges a typical person will face.   Drug cases are often incredibly complicated as well, particularly with Colorado’s special drug offender laws. For that reason it is crucial that you have a strong defense and an experienced lawyer you can trust. The criminal defense attorneys at the Liberty Law Center have been defending people on felony, misdemeanor, and even petty offense drug charges for more than 30 years. We defend against any charge or any type of drug including: meth, cocaine, heroin, crack, ecstasy, marijuana, even prescription drugs.

Why does experience matter in drug defense?

It is important that your attorney have experience when it comes to drug charges. At Katzman, Beck & Thom, P.C., our lawyers stay up to date on recent changes in the CO drug laws and on the new and different defense strategies we can use to help you! Drug cases are complicated. Colorado has special drug offender laws that can lead to mandatory sentences and prison time in some cases. Because of this, a drug conviction can affect your life for years to come. You may have great difficulty finding a job, housing, financial aid, and even your driver’s license could be affected. Do not risk your future. You need an attorney with specialized experience building your defense and protecting your rights.

Can the police search and seize my property?

YES. Drug cases often involve the search and seizure of private property. Many times the police try to build a case involving simple possession into something much more serious such as distribution, intent to sell, trafficking, and more. They will do this by searching for additional evidence past what they find either on you or at the scene. The police can search your car, your home, your work, and anywhere else they believe is connected with the crime. They may take your car, money they found on you, things in your home, and whatever they think was involved in the crime or bought with drug money.

Are there options other than jail or prison in drug cases?

Our attorneys at Katzman, Beck & Thom, P.C. will press every angle to get you an alternative to traditional drug sentencing. Some jurisdictions, such as Colorado Springs, have a drug court. In other locations, drug cases go to the main criminal court. In many cases, people charged with drug possession or first offenses can be sentenced to a Drug Court or a diversion program, which may require a drug evaluation, drug treatment, random drug testing, and frequent court appearances. These programs stress rehabilitation over convictions. Our attorneys can negotiate with the DA on your behalf, and many times on first or minor offense, if you participate in diversion you could avoid having a drug conviction on your record.
