Possession of Drugs and/or Drug Paraphernalia-Understanding Drug Laws in Arizona

At Owens & Perkins, we know that being charged with a crime like this can be a stressful experience. Although drug laws in Arizona and the provisions of Proposition 200 may allow for probation or a reduced charge and spare you from a lengthy prison term in some situations, it will not in every situation depending on your criminal history. At Owens & Perkins has effective Criminal Attorneys, experienced in drug laws in Arizona to represent you in drug or drug paraphernalia possession cases.

We will investigate every aspect of your case from interviewing eyewitnesses to reviewing all the physical evidence. This helps our Attorneys to evaluate the strength of the case against you and develop any and all potential defenses.

These cases often involve complex issues of search and seizure where the police may have unconstitutionally obtained evidence that they should be prohibited from using against you. In these situations, we will aggressively fight to show that the seizure or search violated your 4th Amendment right to be free from unreasonable search and seizure and attempt to have the case thrown out due to this violation.

Next, we'll discuss the outcome of the investigation with you, and together we'll decide on the best course of strategy. If the State has a strong case, we may decide to negotiate the best possible deal with the Prosecutor. This includes gathering and presenting our own evidence to the Prosecutor and, when possible, seeking to reach a deal that avoids or reduces incarceration or possibly avoids a felony conviction.

We will seek to identify any weaknesses in the Prosecution's case, as well as evidence of your good character that shows why you should not be treated like a common criminal.

In certain cases, you may be eligible for a diversion program that will ultimately result in the dismissal of the charges once you've completed a program of drug testing and counseling.

But if you're innocent of all charges and we can present solid evidence to support this, we may decide to take your case to trial. Our experienced Criminal Attorneys will prepare your case for trial to present to a jury or judge in the light most favorable to you.
