Defending Against A Wide Array Of Possession Of A Controlled Substance

Our firm handles cases dealing with both prescription and illegal drugs. We have handled cases involving unlawful possession of a variety of controlled substances and narcotics, including the following:

  • Heroin
  • Ecstasy
  • LSD (acid)
  • Ritalin
  • Demerol

The severity of the charge can vary according to the specifics of the substance or narcotic involved.

The Potential For Severe Consequences

Alabama classifies drug possession offenses as felonies. The consequences, however, will depend on the type and amount involved.

Because possession of a controlled substance charges are felonies, consequences are severe and can involve imprisonment, heavy fines, and court-ordered drug counseling or treatment.

At Simms & Associates, our lawyers will use their experience, skill and knowledge of the laws to help mitigate your consequences.

We will carefully investigate your case, the evidence against you and the circumstances surrounding your arrest. If the police violated your rights at any point in the process, we will push back. Let us help you avoid serious penalties and a conviction.
