Colorado has some very harsh laws on drug offenses. The laws can be quite confusing and vary according to the type of drug, the quantity involved, whether the charge involves selling, growing, possessing with intent to sell, whether a gun was nearby, or whether it is a simple possession.
Our local prosecutors sometimes treat these charges more harshly than serious violent offenses. They are also the cases that most often involve unlawful police conduct, where they take shortcuts to make their case.
I have extensive experience with these types of cases. From mitigating the case, to challenging police seizure of evidence (motions to suppress evidence), to trial, I will work hard to get fairness for you.
