Drug Possession

In drug possession cases, you may face state or federal charges. The amount and type of drug you are charged with possessing will affect the charges, the length of your sentence and other penalties if you are convicted. Any prior drug convictions will also be a factor.

Even if you are only charged with possession of marijuana, this can seriously affect the opportunities you will have in the future. Any drug conviction can result in the loss of your driver's license, professional license, scholarships, financial aid or your job. It is best to work with an experienced attorney to protect yourself if you are facing drug charges.

Protecting Your Rights In Drug Cases

At Green & Utter, P.A., we have defended hundreds of people in New Hampshire against drug charges. In some parts of the state, diversionary programs are available when appropriate. We get clients into these programs so they receive the help they need instead of going to jail or getting a criminal record.

We have experience with state and federal drug possession cases involving controlled substances such as:

  • Marijuana
  • Prescription drugs such as OxyContin, Vicodin and Klonopin
  • Heroin
  • Synthetic marijuana
  • Methamphetamine
  • Cocaine and crack

Our lawyers will review your arrest report and investigate your case to determine whether your constitutional rights were violated by law enforcement. Illegal search and seizure is an issue in numerous drug possession cases. If the police did not have just cause to stop you and conduct a search or if you involuntarily consented to a search, we can argue for the suppression of evidence gathered during the search. Depending on the case, this may result in the dismissal of the charges.
