The Defense of Drug Charges in Philadelphia


1/17/2018

What are the best strategies for the defense of drug charges in Philadelphia and why is it important to work with an aggressive and proven criminal defense attorney?  Here in Philadelphia, drug charges are considered to be quite serious as many of our Courts seem to believe that drug charges and related crimes are part of a greater problem which affects the quality of life for all who live and work in Philadelphia.

First time offenders may have opportunities which are not available to those who are accused of more serious drug charges in Philadelphia.  Lauren Wimmer is an aggressive Philadelphia criminal defense attorney who believes every individual should be treated with dignity and many drug cases should be referred to diversionary programs which are focused upon the rehabilitation and recovery of first, second and sometimes even third time offenders.  Wimmer Criminal Defense may be able to achieve an accelerated disposition which can ultimately lead to clearing all criminal charges or expungement of the records associated with their drug charges in Philadelphia.

More serious offenses which include but are not limited to trafficking, possession of narcotics, a controlled substance and/or prescription medications, drug transportation or a possession with the intent to deliver or distribute (PWID) carry serious consequences.  Lauren Wimmer thoroughly investigates every aspect of drug charges in Philadelphia including constitutional issues (illegal search and seizure or profiling), the actions of law enforcement, evidence collection and testing as well as the testimony of police and witnesses.

Wimmer Criminal Defense works aggressively from the beginning of your case to it’s conclusion.  Our investigation often uncovers issues with process, evidence or holes in the prosecution’s case which allow us to seek the dismissal of some or all of the charges at the preliminary hearing.  We work to suppress evidence and further reduce the effectiveness of the prosecution’s case through pre-trial motions and negotiations with the prosecutor’s office.  We challenge every aspect of the case during trial to raise questions of intent or to disprove the credibility or testimony of police and law enforcement as well as the evidence itself.
