The first step in drug crime defense is up to you: Do not talk to the police. Do not give them permission to search. Do not respond to their anger. (See our Four Commandments on the Home page.)

Even if you did give the police information, even if you made admissions in your confusion, there are still drug crime defenses available. The defense may lead to no charges being filed, or it may lead to lesser charges. It may lead to an effective plea bargain that result in less time in prison or probation.

Our entire law firm will be involved in your defense.

Attorney O. Joseph Chornenky is certified as a criminal law specialist by the Arizona Board of Legal Specialization. That distinction is given to a limited number of defense lawyers and requires extensive experience.

We know how to find the positives in your situation. If the police did not follow all rules in your arrest, that could be a defense. If they did not have a warrant or probable cause for search and seizure actions, any evidence may be thrown out — and the charges with it. If this is a first offense or if there were extenuating circumstances, there may be cause to obtain diversion (and perhaps dismissal) or probation. Drug possession with intent may be reduced to mere drug possession.

Our drug crime law firm knows how to develop and present effective deviation packages to demonstrate why a client deserves something better than the usual treatment.
