Wilmington Prescription Drug Charge Lawyer

In the eyes of the law, painkillers and other prescribed drugs are no different than cocaine or heroin. Possessing, stealing or distributing prescription-only medications — even just a few pills — can lead to serious felony drug charges.

The harsh consequences of a drug conviction demand serious representation. I am a Wilmington prescription drug charge lawyer with 30 years of experience handling drug crimes in Delaware, including prescription drug offenses. You can come to me for aggressive defense if you are accused of:

  • Illegal possession of prescription drugs
  • Possession with intent to deliver
  • Prescription fraud
  • Pharmacy theft, burglary or robbery
  • Drug trafficking

Possessing Painkillers And Other Controlled Substances

Addiction to painkillers and recreational use of prescription medications have created a black market for those products — and law enforcement has increased its attention on this area. I represent people arrested in connection with prescription narcotics (OxyContin, Percocet, Vicodin), stimulants (Adderall, Ritalin), sedatives and anxiety medications (Xanax, Valium, Ambien), opiate substitutes intended for addiction treatment (Suboxone, methadone), and other controlled substances.

Whether you are accused of buying, using, selling, stealing or sharing prescription drugs, the potential penalties include jail or prison and a felony record. Drug convictions cause problems with employment, education and other facets of life.

Experienced Drug Crime Defense

My goal is to preserve your freedom and your future. I have helped many clients qualify for drug diversion programs to keep their record clean. I have successfully challenged drug arrests in hearings and trials on the basis of Fourth Amendment violations and other defenses. I have argued mitigating factors at sentencing (such as addiction) to soften the punishment.

I represent the accused in Wilmington, in Newark and throughout New Castle County. If you need a Wilmington prescription drug charge lawyer, contact me online or call 888-672-0082 to schedule a free initial consultation.
