We defend clients throughout central Massachusetts and the MetroWest area in a range of drug crime charges:
  • Drug possession: The criminal charge of drug possession is as simple as it sounds. It involves being caught in possession of illegal drugs. This can include prescription drugs in an illegal quantity or without a valid medical prescription authorizing you to be in possession of the drug.
  • Drug possession with intent to distribute: When you have a higher quantity of a given drug or multiple types of illegal drugs, you could be charged with possession with intent to distribute. Because of the higher quantity, the law can presume that you were intending to distribute the drug rather than consume it on your own, even if you did not have any actual intent to do so.
  • Drug distribution: This is the crime of actually distributing the drugs (in contrast to the intent of distributing).
  • Drug growing and manufacture: The law in Massachusetts is strict against growing and manufacturing illegal drugs like marijuana, meth, cocaine, crack and heroin.
  • Trafficking: This is a felony charge incurred for distributing extraordinarily large quantities.
