Arrested for a Drug Crime? We're Ready to Go the Extra Mile for You.

Silver Spring Drug Crime Attorney

Many various factors need to be taken into consideration after an arrest and charge for a drug crime. Maryland laws regarding drugs and controlled substances can be difficult to understand. You should never have to face the Maryland criminal justice system alone, and you don't have to when you work with the Law Offices of Maria Mena.

We believe each individual should have the ability to retain trusted representation. We make ourselves available to all clients. Our firm offers flexible appointment availability and evening hours in order to accommodate the people we represent. Retaining a criminal defense attorney from our firm can help you obtain a reduction of charges, a case dismissal, acquittal, and can provide you with the legal counsel you need throughout this ordeal.

Types of Drug Charges

There will be a few determining factors that prosecutors will look at as they evaluate their case against you. The amount of drugs you had on you, the type of drug that was found, and the suspected use of the drug will be taken into consideration. All illegal and controlled substances, regardless of the amount, can lead to a criminal charge.

In Maryland, common drug crimes include:

  • Possession
  • Possession with intent to sell
  • Trafficking
  • Doctor shopping or prescription fraud
  • Manufacturing
  • Distribution

What are the Penalties for Drug Crimes?

It is also important to remember that each drug carries different levels of penalties. Some crimes are charged as misdemeanors, while others are felonies. Penalties for drug crimes can range from fines and penalties to federal investigations and prison sentences. Prosecutors do everything in their power in order to ensure that you receive the highest level of penalties available. You need to challenge the aggressiveness of a prosecutor by working with a tenacious defense lawyer.
