Reno Drug Possession & Distribution Lawyer
Consult with a Former Prosecuting Attorney

Avoid Stiff Penalties for Drug Possession & Distribution
The state of Nevada has enacted very severe punishments for drug possession.
Amount of the drug in possession is taken into consideration, as well
as the type of drug.
- Consequences are evaluated on a case-by-case basis:
- If you are caught with more than one ounce of any schedule I controlled
substance, with the exception of marijuana, you face ten years to life
- Mandatory prison sentence is applied for possession of four grams or more
of any schedule I controlled substance, other than marijuana.
- No probation available for possession of four grams or more, mandatory
If you are charged with marijuana possession, the immediate penalties are
less severe, but the arrest and conviction are still on your record and
will impact your life.
Were Your Rights Violated?
If law enforcement violates the constitution, you may not be liable for
violating the law. Sometimes, police mishandles an arrest, violating your
constitutional rights. As your criminal defense attorney, we thoroughly
review the prosecution's evidence against you and work with you to
create a defense strategy that meets your goals. Whether you choose to
accept a plea bargain or go to trial, we can fight for your best interests.
