Greenwich/Stamford Drug Crime Lawyer
There are a number of drug crimes throughout Connecticut, and law enforcement officers are prosecuting these types of crimes more aggressively than ever before. For anyone who has been charged with a drug offense, an experienced criminal defense attorney is what is needed.
At the Law Offices of Mickey Sherman in Greenwich, Connecticut, I have more than 45 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 I file every motion necessary to build the best possible case for your defense. I will not stop with the information provided in police reports. Instead, I conduct my own investigation, interview witnesses, and double-check the evidence collected.
You Need a Fairfield County Drug Possession Defense Attorney
Were your constitutional rights violated? It is important to review all the facts of your case. In some cases, charges have been dismissed if there has been an illegal search or some other breach of the law.
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.
