The Milwaukee Drug Defense Lawyers Are on Your Side
Drug offenses carry stiff penalties in Wisconsin, which is why it is important to have an experienced criminal defense attorney fighting for you.
Laster & Associates LLC aggressively defends drug charges – whether you need to negotiate a fair deal or stand trial, we have the knowledge and experience to make the law work for you.
Wisconsin Drug Laws: Possession With Intent to Deliver
The penalties for possessing cocaine or marijuana, with the intent to deliver, illustrate the severity of the offense. While possession of an illicit drug may be a misdemeanor – depending on the amount and whether it is your first offense – if it is determined that you possessed the drug with intent to deliver, you are facing a felony charge.
Our drug crime lawyers
work closely with you to formulate arguments to help you avoid undue punishment. Factors courts consider include:
The location of the offense – if committed around children, or in close proximity to weapons, this could increase your punishment
Whether there is evidence of gang involvement or criminal networking
The impact on the community
We have helped numerous clients facing drug charges avoid lengthy prison sentences simply by arguing the law.
Prescription Drug Charges: Legal Drugs Illegally Obtained
Legal drugs can be involved in a criminal act when they are illegally obtained or distributed. You could face hefty fines in addition to substantial jail time. It is important to seek out the advice of a knowledgeable drug defense attorney
prior to speaking with the police.
The Constitution grants Americans the right to bear arms in the Second Amendment. There are, however, certain individuals who cannot exercise this right. It is a felony for a person who has previously been convicted of a felony to be in possession of a firearm.
Also, if you are in possession of a firearm in the course and commission of a separate crime – armed robbery, burglary, sexual assault, among others – you may face additional charges and tougher penalties. An experienced criminal lawyer
understands all the different factors which must be considered in the defense of a particular charge.
At Laster & Associates, we are always prepared to go to trial to defend your rights. Our drug defense attorneys are also skilled negotiators who know how to fight for a deal that is in your best interest.
