If you are facing a drug charge, you are facing the potential for steep fines, prison and other penalties if you are convicted. At Combs & Lee, Attorneys at Law, PLLC, we have experienced attorneys with a combined total of 40 years in the courtroom. We are not afraid to challenge prosecutors and police on your behalf. We provide representation for people facing criminal charges in Winston-Salem and the surrounding areas of North Carolina.
We represent people facing misdemeanor and felony drug charges, including serious felonies. We can defend you against charges such as:
- Possession with intent to sell
These charges can stem from a wide variety of illegal drugs, including marijuana, cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine. The level of charge and the severity of the potential consequences will depend on the quantity of drugs you are alleged to possess and on other factors.
Do Not Speak With Investigators Without A Lawyer
If you are arrested for drug possession or another drug offense, call a lawyer before you speak to police about your case. You do not have to speak with law enforcement officers or prosecutors about your case, and it is often better for your case not to say anything.
Our law firm can offer you assistance from the moment that you realize you are being investigated for a possible drug crime. The earlier we represent you, the sooner we can begin investigating the facts and law of your case to make sure that your rights are protected and that we are preparing all possible defenses.
Protecting Your Rights
When we represent you, we will make the state prove that you are guilty beyond a reasonable doubt before you are convicted. We will review your case to determine whether we can challenge evidence on the basis that police violated your constitutional rights when they searched you and your property, that any statements or confessions should be suppressed, and for other reasons. If it is in your best interest, our lawyer will take your case to trial, but we will also explore alternative resolutions such as pretrial diversions that may better serve your needs.
If you are being investigated or have been charged with a drug crime, call our law office at 336-276-0561 or contact us online to schedule an initial consultation.
