Drug possession is a weighty criminal offense in Montgomery County. The consequences of a drug charge can vary greatly: from probation, all the way up to a sentence of years in prison. If you are charged with possession under the law, it means the state has accused you of carrying or having access to a controlled substance. [Drug Possession Continued]
As an example, intoxication offenses don’t just affect your criminal record: they can affect your insurance rates as well as potential employment. Even worse, intoxication offenses, which are designed to protect the community from threats, are often applied towards people who have done nothing dangerous at all. With his unique medical background, Matthew J. Neufeld is capable of looking at the defenses available to those who are involved in such a case, get to the details, and help those who need help with their cases find where the law is on their side.
One of the most common situations substance and assault defendants place themselves in is to assume that the court is capable of lenience. This is a common misconception– “pleading out” doesn’t necessarily give you the best sentence. It simply gives you the sentence the court thinks is appropriate, which often has nothing to do with what the person pleading deserves or should accept. Because of this, it’s important that having an experienced attorney in these matters by your side will help guarantee that a maximum defense will be offered on your behalf. Don’t think in terms of what “justice” demands– because that is not your task, it’s the court’s. Your job in the court system is to find a knowledgeable defense that places your interests first in the eyes of the law and ensures that you get the best treatment that the legal system will allow.
If you have found yourself involved in an intoxication case, drug possession case, or assault charges, it’s important to have a legal representation you can afford. Not doing so runs the risk of not simply losing your case, but everything from your insurance to your employment being affected. Do not assume the courts will work in your favor!
