Illegal Police Search = Case Dismissed!

If you have been charged with any drug-related offense, whether it be something as serious as trafficking controlled substances or something as minor as simple possession of a few prescription pills, it is absolutely vital that you immediately contact a Salem criminal defense attorney.

Many people believe that, because the police found drugs on their person, in their car or in their home, that they have no chance of winning their case. This is simply not true. The fact of the matter is that the United States Constitution and the Massachusetts Declaration of Rights provide everybody with the right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures. If the drugs in your case were found as the result of an illegal search, then that evidence will be thrown out of court and your charges will be dismissed.

It is common for overzealous police officers, who don't know the law as well as they think, to make mistakes or to intentionally violate your constitutional rights. When this happens, it is important to have an attorney who has the ability and desire to aggressively fight to make sure that your rights are protected. It is essential to have an attorney who knows the law and police procedure inside and out, so that he can pick about the police officer and show the judge how your rights were violated.

With my extensive criminal defense experience and my background as both a former police officer and a former prosecutor, I believe that I am uniquely qualified to stand up for your constitutional rights and to help you obtain the best possible result on your drug case.
