Drug Crime Attorney in Columbia

Defending Your Rights & Protecting Your Freedom

Have you recently been charged with illegal possession of drugs? No matter the details of your case, the accusation remains serious. If convicted, you could face hefty fines as well as lengthy jail time. And future employers might think you have a history of drug use and felony.

At Rutter and Sleeth Law Offices, we understand your fears and worries for your future and your reputation. Put these fears to rest; hire a drug crime lawyer in Columbia who will work hard to defend your rights and present your case in the best possible light.

Let Us Manage Your Case

Our lawyers will stop at nothing to gather evidence about the situation. After extensive interviews and testimonies, we’ll uncover all the factors that affect the case, including where the drugs were found and the amount in your possession. Then we’ll determine the best way to lessen the penalties or convince the court to dismiss the case entirely.

For example, if the arresting officer ignored search and seizure rules, the court cannot use the drugs as evidence at the trial. Or if the drugs truly belonged to someone else, our drug crime lawyer will strive to find proof that validates your claim and clears you of the accusation.

On the other hand, if the drugs are yours, we’ll help you negotiate with the prosecution to create an appropriate compromise. Often times we can convince the court to reduce penalties and charges based on your history and any prior convictions.
