DRUG OFFENSES – CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYERS DENVER, CO – DECKER AND JONES

Denver Drug Crime Defense Attorney

Drug related charges vary widely in both seriousness and complexity. In recent years there have been substantial changes in the laws governing drugs and the consequences for such crimes. Because of this, it is vital to have an experienced attorney who is well versed and informed of these changes, and exactly how they may effect your situation. In addition, and because many drug cases involve search and seizure litigation you need an attorney who are ready and motivated to go after the government’s case aggressively. Someone who has already handled such situations successfully in the past. At Decker and Jones that is what you will get. We are passionate about your defense, and tenacious about getting positive results for you no matter what your situation may be. Whether your case results in a negotiated settlement or requires a trial to a jury, you will know that our experience in litigating drug cases, and dealing with the courts and prosecutors, has yielded positive results for you. In many instances, drug cases involve federal agencies, lengthy investigations, wiretap communications, multiple co-defendants or cooperating witnesses. In these cases you need an attorney who is well versed in these types of circumstances. Under Colorado and United States law there are literally thousands of substances which may be the subject of criminal drug charges. These substances range from medications which may be legal to posses or purchase by prescription, to substances such a methamphetamine, ecstasy, or hallucinogens which are never legal to posses or manufacture. While drug offenses in some circumstances can be relatively “minor”, in others they may carry significant and mandatory prison time. Having an attorney who knows both the laws and the individual prosecutors who pursue them is critical. At Decker and Jones we have that experienced knowledge and those professional relationships as a result of our many years practicing exclusively criminal law.

We regularly handle the following types of allegations in both State and Federal courts:
