Sarasota Drug Possession Attorney

A possession charge requires defense from a lawyer who understands how to negotiate and minimize charges, and possibly have the charges dismissed. These charges may seem simple and easy to work out a deal — but oftentimes they are not. Depending on the quantity, you could be faced with a felony charge and a mandatory prison sentence.

The lawyers at MSPerryLaw, have more than 20 years of combined experience defending drug cases in Sarasota, Manatee and Bradenton counties, Florida, and the surrounding areas. We are very familiar with both the state and federal criminal systems and are driven to get the best outcome for our clients.

Principal attorney Michael Perry was a former prosecutor, and attorney Dana Moss was a former police officer. Their knowledge of the legal system and of law enforcement processes and procedures will provide positive leverage for your case. We know how to negotiate and question evidence and will work to minimize your sentence and get the best deal possible.

Minimizing Drug Crime and Narcotics Charges for First-Time Offenders

In some scenarios, if you have no prior convictions we may be able to work out a deal where your case is dismissed. Otherwise, we will aggressively work to minimize any criminal sentence.

Our Sarasota drug possession lawyers frequently work with first-time offenders, and we have been very successful in avoiding felony convictions. By avoiding a felony conviction, or having the case dismissed, we can then work to get your criminal record sealed or expunged.

Repeat Offenders

As a repeat offender, the prosecutor may be seeking a jail sentence. At our firm, we work to avoid mandatory prison sentences and will diligently pursue every avenue of defense in your case. In any case, the amount in possession is very significant. If the amount is considered drug trafficking, you could face a mandatory minimum prison sentence.
