In Georgia and across the country, the abuse of prescription drugs has reached epidemic proportions. The number of deaths due to prescription drugs has surpassed the number of deaths due to street drugs. These controlled drugs include narcotic painkillers like OxyContin, Percocet and Vicodin, as well as antianxiety medications such as Xanax and Valium. Charges stemming from the abuse of prescription drugs can range from possession to trafficking.

Our attorneys work hard to protect your rights and freedoms during the entire court process, from arraignment to sentencing and even through appeals if necessary. We leave no stone unturned.
As part of our routine process, we launch a thorough independent investigation into the validity of the charges against you. We also look at whether law enforcement followed appropriate search and seizure protocols during their investigation. In the event that you face conviction, we will even look at sentencing guidelines, and whether rehabilitation, rather than jail, is an appropriate course of action. Each case is approached in a unique way, depending on your individual circumstances, criminal history, and financial and/or family support.
