Time-Tested Defense Against Drug Crime Charges

Drug charges don't always involve street drugs like heroin, meth and cocaine. Increasingly, men and women of all backgrounds find themselves behind bars for illegally possessing (or selling) prescription medications. The black market for narcotics, opiates and other controlled substances is thriving across Wisconsin.

Many people facing these charges don't fit the stereotype of the "average" drug dealer or abuser. For some, what started as a lawful prescription escalated into physical dependency and, from there, into an avalanche of legal consequences.

Regardless of the story that led you to these charges or the exact drugs involved, the potential consequences of any type of drug charge can be severe.
