Have You Been Charged with Drug Possession and Want to Know More about Your Legal Rights?

There is nothing "minor" about an arrest for drug possession or possession with the intent to sell drugs. Zealous prosecutors bring heavy, multiple charges to appease the public. Judges' hands are often tied with minimum sentencing requirements for a drug conviction.

Your rights can evaporate unless you have the best legal counsel available. Kreps Law Firm, LLC is always available - our phones are answered 24 hours a day...
