Sam Bernstein, an Ann Arbor Drug Lawyer, Will Work Hard to Build a Solid Defense

Sam Bernstein, an Ann Arbor drug lawyer, will thoroughly review the prosecution’s case in an effort to find holes, such as an improper search and seizure. If we can find a defense that proves your constitutional rights have been violated, the prosecution may choose to reduce or even drop the charges once we present our argument.

An Ann Arbor Drug Lawyer can help fight your case. We have fought many drug dealing cases. Often the prosecution charges a person with possession with intent to sell drugs when that is not the case. In these situations, we have to analyze the facts to show that our client was not selling drugs, even though drugs were in the client’s possession.

The Consequences of a Drug Conviction

Even if the drug offense seems minor, it can carry lasting impacts, including fines, community service obligations, supervised release, and imprisonment. A second or subsequent drug crime conviction under Michigan law can result in severe financial penalties and jail time.

Aside from court punishments, a drug conviction can hinder your ability to get a job or lead a normal life. A drug crime conviction will, unfortunately, appear on a background check when you are seeking employment. If you are a professional that is licensed by the state, for example, a nurse or social worker your professional license could be in jeopardy. Sam Bernstein, an Ann Arbor drug lawyer, will work to mitigate these damages by advising you on the best actions to protect your reputation.
