The first thing you need to do when facing a drug charge is talk to a lawyer. Why? The situation may not be as bad as you think. Your lawyer will know your options. And if it is bad, you'll have an advocate who will stand up for you and protect your rights. Talk to a drug charge defense attorney at Stewart MacNichols Harmell, Inc., P.S.

No matter what the charges are or how minor or major you think they may be, do not talk to the police. Talk to an attorney experienced with VUCSA (Violation of the Uniform Controlled Substance Act) cases. With our experience at SBMH we will know your options and can help you decide what's next.

About drug-related charges

  • Drug possession charge: Have you been arrested for simple possession? You may want to talk to your lawyer about a DOSA - the state's Drug Offender Sentencing Alternative or Drug Court.
  • Answers to your questions: Do not ask the police or prosecutors about what the law is and how it affects your case. Talk to an attorney who is interested in protecting your rights and freedom. Our defense attorneys want the best possible outcome for you.
  • Investigation of charges: Our law firm will fully investigate the drug charges against you, working hard to discover any and all available evidence. This investigation is done with a purpose as work aggressively to develop each of the available facts which might convince the prosecutor and, if necessary a jury, of your innocence. Furthermore, we look for irregularities in the evidence and, if we believe that it was obtained improperly, we will challenge it and, whenever possible, have it excluded.. What is the evidence? Was it properly obtained? Were your rights violated in any way? We do not accept the police version of what happened. We want to know your version.
  • Types of charges: VUCSA charges include possession, delivery, trafficking and conspiracy of illegal substances - methamphetamines, ecstasy, marijuana, cocaine, crack, illegal prescription drugs and others.
