Drug Offenses

Erie Drug Charges Defense Lawyer

Drug cases, especially those involving meth, marijuana and prescription medications, seem to be on the rise. Whether the increase is due to a higher level of police diligence or a growing pattern of use, charges relating to possession, manufacturing and distribution have serious consequences in Pennsylvania.

At the Erie, Pennsylvania office of attorney Damon C. Hopkins, we represent juveniles and adults who are charged with or under investigation for drug crimes, including prescription fraud, at the state or federal level. If you or a family member has been arrested, indicted or are being investigated for a drug offense, contact us right away to preserve your rights.

Your Right to Legal Representation

You have the right to have an attorney at every stage of the process. Whether you or a loved one is the subject of an on-going investigation, have been arrested for a drug crime, or have been charged with a crime, you are entitled to seek the advice of an attorney. Even if you have tried to go at it alone, you still have the right to an attorney.

Consequences of Drug Crimes

Consequences for drug crimes involving drugs such as marijuana, heroin, meth, cocaine or even prescription drugs are severe. If convicted, you could be facing lengthy incarceration, probation and or fines. We strive to make sure that you get the help and assistance necessary to free yourself from any drug or alcohol addiction so that you can move on from this mistake. When appropriate, we will provide referral information to area treatment programs.

College Students and Juveniles

Young people often find themselves in situations involving drugs and alcohol. The opportunity and pressure to make poor choices, such as marijuana usage or driving under the influence, is regularly present. Consequences of conviction often mirror those given to adults. We work with families to decrease the impact today's choices may have on tomorrow's future. We will represent students, not only in drug crimes cases, but at school administrative hearings as well.
