You Always Have Options Against Drug Charges
When you have been arrested for a drug crime in Georgia, the quality of your legal counsel can have a major impact on the outcome of your case. It is important that you have a lawyer who helps you understand your options and fights for the best possible results for you.
At Morris & Dean in Dalton, we have spent decades protecting the rights of those facing criminal charges in Georgia. Our legal team has more than 60 years of combined experience, and we will put this to work for you.
Attorney Marcus Morris leads our criminal defense practice. He is a former prosecutor who knows the steps the government is taking to convict you. He uses an insider’s knowledge of the opposition to build strong cases for our clients.
You might be worried that the police have stacked the evidence heavily against you. No matter what, you have options. We will question whether all of the evidence is even admissible. If the police violated your rights during their investigation, searching your property without a warrant or just cause, we will ask a judge to throw the evidence out.
Protection From Interstate Drug Interdiction Charges
Many police departments in Georgia have highway drug interdiction task forces. Officers on these forces have one goal — to make drug busts on the interstates. They pull over unsuspecting travelers, typically for minor traffic infractions, hoping to find drugs or drug money.
These police often use canine detectives, intimidating interview tactics, and aggressive search and seizure protocols. If you were charged with possession, drug distribution or drug trafficking after being stopped by an interdiction officer, we will work hard to uncover whether the police violated your Fourth Amendment rights or made any other mistakes.
We are prepared to investigate whether the police had a right to stop you and all other factors that could lead a judge to dismiss or reduce your charges. If you must face the charges, we will protect your freedom vigorously and work to resolve your case in the best possible way.
