Louisiana courts do not take drug, narcotics or controlled dangerous substance violations lightly. Whether it is methamphetamine, heroin, fentanyl, crack, cocaine, marijuana, prescription pills, or legend drugs, getting caught with an illegal drug comes with serious direct costs and collateral consequences as many of these charges are felony offenses.

Being with a skilled and accomplished attorney who has earned a remarkable 35-year track record also works in your favor. You will be more able to make clear-headed decisions and less likely to act rashly or out of fear.
Proven Defense For A Broad Range Of Charges
The charges you face can include:
- Possession: The offender has possession of a controlled substance either on their body, in their home or vehicle
- Possession with intent: The offender has a controlled substance, and there is an intention to sell or redistribute it
- Distribution and trafficking: Evidence indicates that the offender is illegally importing, selling and transporting a controlled substance
- Cultivation and manufacturing: Evidence indicates that the offender is involved in growing or producing a controlled substance
- Drug paraphernalia: The offender possesses, imports, exports or sells items for drug use and drug-related activities
Depending on the type of drug, the amount and purity in question, and if you had a prior criminal record, the penalties for conviction in Louisiana could be substantial. Courts could impose a large fine, decades of imprisonment or both. They may also order seizure of cash, vehicles, and other personal property.
