Louisiana Drug Crimes Attorneys
Providing Aggressive Defense for Those Accused of Drug Crimes
Drug crimes have harsh penalties in Louisiana, and the penalties upon conviction range from hefty fines to long prison sentences, as well as a permanent stain on your criminal record. Bottom line, a conviction will negatively impact your life and it could mean the loss of your job, trouble finding new employment, difficulty finding a new dwelling place, or you could lose custody of any children, to name just a few of the common penalties.
If you face drug charges, it is in your best interest to actively seek criminal defense representation from an experienced attorney. Our Louisiana drug crimes attorneys at The Scott Law Firm, LLC have court experience and we will aggressively represent you as we fight for the most favorable outcome to your case. Remember, an arrest is not a conviction, and we firmly believe every defendant is innocent until proven guilty. You should also know that choosing the right criminal defense lawyer could mean all the difference in your future; whether you end up being sentenced to prison, getting probation, being sent to drug rehab, or even walking free.
Drug crimes are either categorized as misdemeanors or felonies, and whether you are charged with one versus the other will dictate the penalties you face. Convictions may also bridge between Louisiana state and federal law. As always, felony crimes are punished much more harshly than misdemeanors, and a felony could land you in prison for years. Our criminal defense attorneys in Baton Rouge will protect your best interests to help you and educate you on the charges you face so you can be an active participant in your own defense.
