Chattanooga Drug Crimes Lawyer

Tennessee police and other law enforcement officials are aggressively prosecuting drug crimes throughout the state. If you have been arrested and charged with a drug offense, you need an equally aggressive defense attorney.

At the Law Office of Sam Byrd in Chattanooga, Tennessee, I defend individuals against a variety of drug-related charges, including:

  • Marijuana offenses
  • Cocaine offenses
  • Methamphetamine offenses
  • Drug trafficking
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Prescription drug charges

Talk to us before you talk to police. If you have been arrested with any type of drug, it is important to immediately consult with a defense attorney. Do not speak with the police. A common mistake is saying too much to police under the impression that cooperating will help you. In truth, you are only strengthening the case against you. Your first call should be to an aggressive Chattanooga drug crimes attorney.

Hamilton County Marijuana Lawyer

I listen carefully to your account of the arrest and review all police documents on the case to determine if your constitutional rights were violated. In instances where authorities confiscated drugs after an illegal stop or during an illegal search of your premises, it is possible to get the charges dismissed. It is critical to have an attorney who is well-versed on search warrant requirements.

I also help clients resolve their cases through diversionary programs, which allow individuals to agree to reduced charges and avoid jail time by successfully completing drug rehabilitation programs. It is essential to hire a lawyer who is familiar with these programs, the options they provide and who is eligible for them.

If you have questions about the drug charges that you face, call 423-954-7949 or email me to schedule a free consultation.
