The Consequences Of A Drug Conviction Are Far-Reaching — Avoid Them

A drug conviction carries serious, life-changing consequences. The best way to protect yourself against them is to work with an experienced defense lawyer.

Drug convictions are especially limiting for college students. Once convicted of a drug crime, you lose all eligibility for federal financial aid. Getting into graduate school will be a challenge. If you were planning to enter the medical industry, getting a license may be difficult.

Over the years, Peter D. Zellmer has defended clients against a wide range of drug offenses, involving marijuana, cocaine, heroin and prescription pills such as oxycodone. His defense experience includes cases involving:

  • Possession of marijuana or a controlled substance
  • Drug trafficking
  • Possession with the intent to sell
  • Drug manufacturing/Manufacture a controlled substance
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Possession of a prescription drug without a prescription
  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Drug sale & delivery
  • Drug-related conspiracy
  • Federal distribution charges

When building a defense, his goal is to mitigate the potential consequences. Sometimes that is best achieved through a plea bargain, other times it requires litigation in front of a judge or jury. No matter which path is taken, Mr. Zellmer will be your tireless advocate.

Drug charges almost always result after a search and seizure. Mr. Zellmer will investigate the circumstances surrounding your charges to make sure your Fourth Amendment rights were not violated. He will challenge the legality of the stop and search to suppress evidence where possible.
