We Will Aggressively Defend Your Rights
Kreps Law Firm, LLCthoroughly examines charges of possession of a controlled substance for any weakness in the prosecutor's case, and we first seek a dismissal of charges. If the evidence was obtained from a traffic stop, we can challenge the officer's reasonable cause for pulling you over. If evidence was obtained from an illegal stop or search of your vehicle, we can seek to have that evidence suppressed. Our team also challenges toxicology tests - sometimes the government is unable to prove that the seized substance is the drug they claimed.
Our attorneys have considerable experience in fighting criminal drug charges, in both state and federal courts of Alabama and many other states. If a dismissal cannot be obtained and going to trial is not a viable option, we are skilled negotiators who strive to secure the most favorable plea agreement for your circumstances.
Contact an Alabama prescription drug defense attorney who knows the courts, the statutes, and the negotiating points to obtain the best possible outcome. We will explain your rights in a free consultation and advise you of your legal options.
