The decades old “war against drugs” has led to harsher sentences for those convicted on drug related charges. Drug possession, distribution and trafficking may involve harsh sentences for even seemingly minor infractions. Multiple convictions for these offenses result in enhanced sentences that up the stakes dramatically for some offenders. In all drug related criminal prosecutions, the accused must have an experienced and qualified attorney to represent them. An experienced attorney can evaluate your case to determine its legitimacy and constitutionality. Depending on whether your car was pulled over on the highway, your home or place of business was searched, or an informant passed along information in exchange for a lesser sentence - how evidence is gathered and seized can determine the strength of the case against you. An inexperienced attorney may miss a critical circumstance in your case that could be the difference between freedom and prison. Because of that, you can trust the 20+ years of felony trial experience at The Law Offices of Beattie Butler to protect your rights.

One of the best things about serving our clients like we do is that you'll never have to take our word for it.
