We Are Drug Case Criminal Defense Specialists
These cases pose significant issues for the state and often have multiple avenues of defense. Our attorneys start with investigating the scene looking at the state’s police reports and evidence. We review the Officers reasoning in their investigation and look at their reasons for every decision. For instance, if the police search a vehicle or home without consent and without a search warrant, they often cannot use anything they find. They cannot use any evidence that they find resulting from an illegal search.
We run down every single lead and any witnesses that we can find. Additionally, we investigate the evidence and use the evidence against the Officers. In every single drug case we file motions to suppress the evidence. If we win those motions, the Officers are limited in what they can tell the jury and sometimes can’t use anything they find in your case.
There are a variety of ways to do win these motions. Suppressing evidence is one way. We ask the judge to rule out specific evidence. Since the police obtained it illegally or in violation of your constitutional rights, it cannot be used.
Constitutional Right Against Unreasonable Search
The Supreme Court of Georgia, over the history of Georgia Law, has made decisions that affect the way police have to treat you during traffic stops and when searching your vehicle. The Constitution says you have a right against any unreasonable searches and seizures. However, the police have multiple ways they can search your vehicle or home or person without a search warrant.
Our attorneys specialize in fighting illegal searches. This includes illegal inventory searches, illegal probable cause searches, searches without probable cause, Searches without articulable suspicion, Plain-View searches, searches with a search warrant, and searches without search warrants.
Search Warrant Cases
We specialize in challenging search warrants and the underlying evidence used to obtain said search warrant. Often, we attack the credibility of the officer and their investigation. We do everything we can to cross examine them using their own evidence. We find the deficiencies and inconsistencies in their investigation. Our goal is to know the case better than the Officers and know what they will testify to at trial.
We also specialize in defending people who were accused of drugs along with co-Defendants. The law is very clear that there are certain things required for an officer to charge you with possession of drugs. You must either be in direct possession, which means it’s on your person, or you can be in Constructive Possession.
Construction Possession means a person must be able to maintain some direct access and control over the drugs to the exclusion of others. In cases where multiple people are charged with possessing the same item, additional defenses arise and it creates multiple ways for us to get the case dismissed or reduced.
