Case Evaluation

Facing a drug crime arrest is daunting, but remember, an arrest isn’t a conviction. The moments post-arrest are crucial. Reach out to a Drug Crime Defense Lawyer before speaking to authorities. Words can be used against you. Choose an experienced attorney who examines evidence thoroughly and explores all angles. Early involvement matters; it can uncover fresh evidence and help build a proactive defense. Trials require strong preparation.

During a drug crime case evaluation, we will look at:

  • Evidence Scrutiny
    • Drug crime defenses often hinge on the quality and legitimacy of evidence. Our team meticulously examines every piece of evidence – from how the drugs were discovered to how they were handled and stored.
  • Questioning the arrest
    • A substantial number of drug-related arrests can sometimes be rooted in questionable practices. Was there a legitimate reason for the initial stop or search? Were your rights read to you upon detention? Were any search warrants properly executed? We delve deep into the circumstances of your arrest.
  • Contextual Understanding
    • Drug-related offenses aren’t black and white. There’s often a background story – perhaps a struggle with addiction, external pressures, or instances where our clients may have been mere bystanders in larger operations. We want to learn and understand the full story.
  • Informant Credibility
    • When it comes to drug crimes, informant testimonies are common. However, informants can sometimes have ulterior motives – be it reduced sentences for their own crimes or personal vendettas.

Although our objective as criminal defense attorneys is to advocate for a favorable case result in court, we honestly care for our clients and want to see them free. So, we are greatly honored to play a role in bettering a person’s life. Case evaluations are essential for various reasons. Your defense lawyer’s choice impacts the outcome. Boatwright Legal offers expertise, trust, and communication. Contact us at 864-481-1369 for a committed defense. Your future and rights matter.

Being accused of a drug-related crime comes with its own set of challenges – the social stigma, the intricate web of evidence, and often, the weight of public opinion. Boatwright Legal recognizes these unique challenges and our process is designed to counter them.

Initially, we ensure a non-judgmental space for our clients. We listen, empathizing with their situation and understanding the backdrop of their involvement, be it addiction, coercion, or simply being at the wrong place at the wrong time.

As we move forward, our emphasis remains on keeping clients informed about the specificities of drug crime defenses. We demystify legal jargon, explaining processes like drug diversion programs, potential plea bargains, and the intricacies of mandatory sentencing.

Our commitment to collaboration takes center stage here. We believe our clients, especially those implicated in drug crimes, hold insights that can dramatically shift the defense narrative. Their stories, experiences, and understanding of events are integral to crafting a defense that’s both legally sound and deeply personal.
