  • Ecstasy
  • LSD
  • Prescription drugs such as OxyContin, Xanax and other painkillers

We Explore All Available Options

If you are facing a first offense of drug possession, we can look at options for getting you involved in a diversionary program. When you participate in a drug diversion program, you can avoid a conviction. Our clients often need help, not punishment.

New Jersey and New York have drug court programs that help many drug users get treatment and avoid jail. We will help determine if drug court is appropriate for you. If you or someone you love needs drug treatment or drug therapy, drug court may be an effective way to resolve the criminal case and get help at the same time.

As your defense attorneys, we will explain the charges, potential penalties and all stages of the legal process.
