Drug Offenses - Offices of Lyle K. Porter

No matter how strong the evidence may appear to be stacked against you in a drug case, these types of offenses generally involve issues relating to a search and seizure. Your rights under the Fourth Amendment to be free from the unlawful search and seizure of your property present an area of law where we have vast experience.

At the Law Office of Lyle K. Porter in Lawrenceville, we have more than two decades of experience defending people in Gwinnett, Forsyth, Hall, Fulton, Barrow and DeKalb counties and the surrounding parts of Georgia against drug charges involving marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and more.

We also defend against drug charges involving prescription drugs such as OxyContin and Xanax. These cases may involve allegations of prescription fraud and forged prescriptions. Prosecutors take these cases just as seriously as any other drug case, so it is important to enlist a lawyer who will take an aggressive, trial-ready stance to help you fight the charges.

We defend and protect clients' rights who have been charged with drug-related offenses, including:

  • Drug possession
  • Possession with intent to sell
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Drug sale or distribution
  • Prescription drug charges

Finding The Flaws In The Case Against You

People often give up too soon in these cases. For example, a person caught with marijuana in a traffic stop and charged with marijuana possession may think that there is no use fighting the charges because the evidence is so strong. That is not necessarily true.

We will investigate thoroughly to find the flaws in the case against you. Before we even dig into the evidence itself, we may review how it was obtained. Were the search and seizure handled properly or were your constitutional rights violated? Was the evidence handled properly after it was obtained? Errors made by police officers in these early stages often lead to evidence being dismissed or drug charges being thrown out.

Our criminal law experience means we know how to find the flaws in the case against you and create a defense strategy designed to keep you out of jail.
