How to Beat a Connecticut Drug Charge

The prosecution must be able to prove that you were legally and knowingly in possession of a controlled substance or drug. An experienced CT Marijuana Lawyer can challenge the facts of possession and the facts of identification of the substance. We can also challenge the legitimacy of the search and seizure under the Constitution. The police must have a legitimate reason to search your person, your car or your home, or any evidence they obtain against you must be thrown out.

The defense tactics I would use vary greatly with the facts of the case. Give me a call and I'll go over your case and walk through what I think are your best options to beat your drug charge and avoid the worst consequences.
