Charged With Drug Possession?

Once you have been targeted by law enforcement agents on suspicion of possession of illegal drugs, you should not expect that you will be able to explain the situation away. You need a skilled, determined defense lawyer on your side to advise you and defend you aggressively before a prosecutor, judge and/or jury.

Our founding attorney, David S. West, has practiced criminal law for more than 25 years. He takes a strong stand on behalf of clients’ constitutional rights and long-term interests. He has achieved noteworthy results in drug possession cases, such as case dismissal when he proved that the police had tampered with evidence.

Defending People Accused Of Possession Crimes Throughout Georgia

At David West & Associates, we defend those charged with drug crimes such as possession, possession with intent to distribute and possession of paraphernalia associated with controlled substances, including the following:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Crack cocaine
  • Ecstasy
  • Heroin
  • Methamphetamines
  • Prescription opioids and other drugs without legitimate prescriptions in the name of the possessor

At our law firm, we focus on demonstrating that prosecutors lack sufficient evidence to convict our clients of the possession crimes they are accused of. A successful outcome might be a case dismissal, a reduction of charges, a reduction of penalties, probation or deferred prosecution dependent on good-faith drug treatment completion. Every case is unique, and every client receives personalized advocacy.

Mr. West has achieved many admirable wins on behalf of clients charged with possession of “street drugs” and prescription narcotics. He has represented defendants in federal drug crime cases throughout the United States.

Discuss Your Case With An Experienced, Acclaimed Defense Lawyer

Even if you have been accused of a seemingly minor crime – such as possessing a small amount of a banned substance or a prescription drug that was prescribed to you but was outside of its labeled container – your need for a strong defender is critical at this time. A conviction could put you in jail or prison, cause you to lose eligibility for federal student aid and leave you with a misdemeanor or felony on your record.
