If you or a family member has been charged with a drug crime in Delaware, you need the assistance of a criminal defense lawyer who has experience handling these types of criminal cases. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation with one of our Delaware Criminal Defense Lawyers.
Delaware drug crimes can include the following:
- Drug Dealing or Aggravated Possession
- Trafficking in marijuana, cocaine, illegal drugs, methamphetamines, LSD, designer drugs, or MDMA
- Possession of controlled substances
- Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
- Possession of Marijuana
- Possession of hypodermic needles
and other offenses…
Our attorneys have defended people in hundreds (maybe thousands at this point) of drug-related criminal cases through the decades. Many of the drug cases we have tried and won were charges dealing with the most serious offenses of dealing and trafficking, and many of our clients have been eligible for habitual offender status, meaning that a conviction could have led to life in prison. We have a track record of success in this area.
There are many lawyers you could choose to represent you or your family member in a drug case in Delaware. And if you don’t hire a lawyer, the State will probably assign a free public defender. So why would you choose to hire us to represent you?
REASON #1 – RESULTS, RESULTS, RESULTS
If you are reading this, you probably were referred to us by someone in the community. Many of our clients come to us because we were able to obtain a good result for a family member, friend, or neighbor. Although past success does not guarantee a good result in the future, our track record in serious criminal cases is well known in the community. Ask around before you hire us.
REASON #2 – A STIFF HEADWIND
A drug case is not a 100-meter dash. It’s much more like a marathon. The State has the burden of proof. Therefore, the prosecutor or Deputy Attorney General is like the runner who must reach the finish line to win the case. We are here to provide a stiff headwind all through the marathon. That means we will question every decision the police made in their investigation. We will question every choice the Deputy Attorney General makes in his or her prosecution of the case. For example, why did the police search the car to find the drugs? Was the warrant valid? Who was the confidential informant? Was the information they provided competent to rely upon? We know the rules and laws that authorize the police to investigate, and we know how to use the law to the greatest benefit in contesting invalid, unconstitutional searches and seizures.
REASON #3 – EXPERIENCE, EXPERIENCE, EXPERIENCE
Our attorneys have been defending drug cases in the Delaware Supreme Court, Delaware Superior Court, and in the Delaware Court of Common Pleas for decades. We have many years of experience investigating, trying, and (when necessary) appealing cases. If you need a seasoned advocate to argue your legal points to the judge, to explain your story to the jury, and to guide you through the legal process, you want and need the most experienced defense lawyer you can find.
We are currently accepting Delaware drug crimes cases in the Superior Court and Court of Common Pleas in New Castle County (Wilmington), the Superior Court and Court of Common Pleas in Kent County (Dover), and the Superior Court and Court of Common Pleas in Sussex County (Georgetown). We are also available for representation in Delaware Justice of the Peace (JP) criminal courts.
