Defending You From Heroin Charges
Possession of heroin used to be a crime that did not affect a wide cross-section of America. All of that has changed, in part due to addiction to prescription pain relievers such as Percocet. For many people addicted to opioid-based pain medication, heroin provides a similar effect and is easier to obtain.

Protecting You From A Damaging Conviction
Conviction of heroin possession could result in a prison sentence of up to 15 years. The consequences can be even higher if you possess heroin near a school or park, or under certain other aggravating circumstances.
While a plea bargain deal that results in little or no prison time might be a good result, it is important to remember that a felony conviction for possession of heroin could affect your employment, bar you from certain careers, and prevent you from obtaining a professional license.
If you have been charged with possession of heroin, it is critical that you have an experienced attorney review your case. If the arresting officer acted inappropriately and outside the bounds of Georgia law and the Fourth Amendment when they arrested you, we may be able to get the charges dismissed. If this is your first offense, we may be able to resolve the charges without the stigma of a criminal conviction.
