Law enforcement authorities in Connecticut are aggressively prosecuting drug crimes throughout the state. If you have been arrested and charged with a drug offense, you need an experienced and aggressive criminal defense attorney who can defend you in court if necessary.
At the Law Offices of Mickey Sherman in Greenwich, Connecticut, I have more than 40 years of legal experience and have defended a number of clients against a variety of drug-related charges in state and federal courts.
I push prosecutors for full disclosure and file every motion necessary to build the best possible case in your defense. I don't stop with the information provided in police reports; I conduct my own investigation, interview witnesses and double-check the evidence that was collected.
Fairfield County Drug Possession Defense Attorney
It is important to review every aspect of your arrest to determine if your constitutional rights were violated. In instances where authorities confiscated drugs after an illegal stop or during an illegal search, I have been able to get the charges dismissed.
Some years ago, I handled the largest drug case in the state's history. My client was found in possession of $300 million worth of cocaine secreted in aluminum ingots brought in by cargo ships from Venezuela. After trial, my client received a substantial sentence, but far below that offered by the government before trial.
My main objective is to minimize the impact that a drug arrest has on your life by keeping you out of jail whenever possible. I have defended individuals who have been charged with a wide variety of drug crimes, including:
- Sale or possession of marijuana, cocaine or LSD
- Selling drugs in public school zones or public park or housing zones
- Prescription drug charges
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
My strong track record as a criminal defense lawyer is the result of understanding when it makes sense to go to trial and when the best possible outcome is more likely to be reached through negotiations.
I have helped many of my clients by negotiating a reduced sentence or agreeing to an alternative treatment program. I have full working knowledge of all pretrial diversionary programs available to people who have committed various drug offenses, both misdemeanors and felonies. I will take the time to fully explain these options and walk you through the benefits, not the least of which is keeping your arrest record as clean as possible.
I understand the unsettling feeling of not knowing what your short-term and long-term future holds. I want to bring clarity and closure to your ordeal.
