Understanding Drug Charges in Rochester

No matter what the offense, however, you need strong legal representation that will work for you to receive the best possible outcome.

After a person has been charged with a drug-related offense, such as marijuana possession, the smartest thing to do is consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney. An attorney will guarantee that their rights are protected. A knowledgeable criminal defense attorney can evaluate the case and advise on the best course of action. In many cases, the charges can be reduced or even dismissed.

It can also include any drug paraphernalia or chemicals or apparatus to be used to manufacture or cultivate illegal drugs. The criminal defense attorneys at Tully Rinckey PLLC are experienced in handling drug possession charges.
