We Step In When You Need a Strong Defense Against Drug Charges

The criminal defense lawyers of Stebelton Snider help people who are charged with drug crimes. Whether your case involves possession of marijuana, trafficking in cocaine, manufacture of methamphetamine, or unlawful access to prescription painkillers, we can advise you about your risks and your most promising options for a favorable result. Contact our office in Lancaster for more information.

We Can Defend You in Cases Involving Misdemeanors Or Felonies

We advise adults and juveniles about the best ways of resolving drug crime charges including the following:

  • Possession of marijuana or drug paraphernalia
  • Possession with intent to distribute cocaine, heroin, or other illegal drugs
  • Prescription fraud
  • Drug trafficking conspiracy
  • Money laundering

The best approach to your case will depend on many factors, including the quantity of the drugs in question, the circumstances of your arrest, the details of the search that resulted in the seizure, and any prior record of convictions that you might have.

Especially for first offenders, we will have a chance to keep your case out of the criminal justice system through diversion programs, chemical dependency treatment, and other programs that vary from one Ohio county to another. Our experience with the defense of drug crime charges throughout central and southern Ohio means that our familiarity with the range of options available in each county can give you an advantage.

Call Us When You Need A Strong Trial Defense

If we cannot resolve your case on favorable terms through negotiation or diversion, our trial experience and skill can improve your chances in court. We know how to help juries focus on the evidence that preserves all available doubt as to the ultimate question of guilt.

The decision to take a case to trial is always the client’s, not the lawyer’s. We work closely with each client to make sure that your decisions are based on an accurate understanding of the case against you, the full range of your legal alternatives, and the pros and cons associated with each. Our attorneys are easy to reach and talk to, and we work best with people who take an active interest in the progress of their case.
