Ellicott City and Annapolis Drug Crime Defense Attorney
Fighting for clients in Howard County, Anne Arundel County, and beyond
Any arrest feels awful, but facing a drug charge can be an especially frightening and overwhelming experience. Entering the criminal justice system can leave you feeling powerless and without hope, particularly if you are also battling with the challenges of a drug addiction. Fortunately, you are entitled to legal counsel. Consulting with an experienced Annapolis drug crime attorney can get you moving in the right direction to fight your charges and protect your rights. My name is Gill Andrew Cochran, and I am dedicated to your case. At Drew Cochran, Attorney at Law, I provide my clients with the tough defense that a drug crime charge requires.
What is considered a drug crime?
Under Maryland law, there are numerous types of drug-related crimes, including:
- Drug possession
The potential consequences of a drug conviction depend on the specific details of the case. While a simple possession charge may result in a small fine or short jail sentence, drug trafficking or manufacturing can land you in jail for the rest of your life. Multiple convictions can also result in extended jail sentences, so no matter the charge, it’s important to secure the services of an aggressive Annapolis drug crime attorney. My extensive experience handling Maryland drug crimes cases will only benefit you. I know the legal system, and I know how to develop a strategy that gives you the best chance at avoiding a harsh sentence.
Strategic defense for both misdemeanor and felony drug charges
I assist my clients with misdemeanor and felony drug charges. This includes the defense of minors and defending allegations involving the abuse of legal pharmaceuticals. Once I review the specific details of a case, I create a defense strategy that pursues the best possible outcome. I may attack the search or arrest that led to discovery of the drugs. I may also question the actual possession of the drugs, especially if there are other defendants involved in the case. Lab analysis mistakes and law enforcement entrapment are additional strategies that may help the case. In some instances, the best strategy is to seek the lightest possible sentence. Whatever game plan I use, I always fight for my clients and I never back down from a necessary courtroom battle.
If arrested for a misdemeanor or felony drug crime in Howard County or Anne Arundel County, your first call must be to a knowledgeable Annapolis drug defense attorney. Let me help you through this difficult time by using my skills and determination to defend your best interests.
