Do not risk your life and years on a jail or prison sentence without speaking with an experienced trial attorney who can assess the prosecution’s case and see if there are any issues. Frequently, we find that there is an issue with the traffic stop, the drug sniffing K9 unit, or even an issue with a search warrant.
