New Orleans Drug Crime Attorney
Our New Orleans, Louisiana, law firm — Stephen Rue & Associates — handles the criminal defense drug charges in state courts. These are related to a broad range of illegal drugs, including marijuana, crack and cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and prescription narcotics.
Louisiana judges take drug crimes seriously, especially in situations involving alleged drug sales or large volumes of narcotics. Prosecutors have a reputation for multi-billing, seeking enhanced penalties for repeat felony offenders. So, if you have been convicted of a drug crime or have previously pleaded guilty to one, you could face a long and enhanced prison sentence if you are convicted again. (This is commonly referred to as a “multi-bill.”)
Our drug lawyer is well-prepared to handle even the most serious drug crimes:
- Drug possession
- Possession of paraphernalia
- Manufacture of methamphetamine
- Cultivation of marijuana
- Drug distribution/sale
- Drug trafficking
Because so much is often at stake, our drug crime attorney does everything they can within the bounds of the law for their clients. We start with thorough investigations of the facts and laws involved in the drug charges. We then use our experience and in-depth knowledge to build a criminal defense strategy that works in your case. In many cases, we are able to pursue matters in drug courts and seek treatment alternatives to incarceration for our clients.
We understand that a drug arrest can affect an entire family. We often work with family members of people who have been arrested and are in jail. We also work with the families of juveniles who have been accused of drug crimes.
