Orlando Drug Possession Lawyer

Our Drug Crimes Attorney Can Help Your Criminal Case

Whether you face charges of possessing cocaine, marijuana, meth, or a prescription drug, you must retain hard-hitting legal defense immediately. Be forewarned: you can be charged with drug possession even if you weren't in "actual possession" of the drugs.

Constructive possession is when you are aware that a substance is in your vicinity, that the substance is illegal, and that it is close enough for you to possess it.

The penalties for a drug possession conviction can include jail time, monetary fines, lengthy probation, forfeiture of property and assets, community service, and more, which is why you need to attain an experienced Orlando drug crimes lawyer.

Is Drug Possession a Felony in Florida?

Yes, in Florida, many drug possession charges are categorized as third-degree felonies. A third-degree felony drug possession punishment could face a sentence of up to five years in prison if you face these charges.

When you retain the representation of Lyle Mazin, you benefit from the following:

  • He can investigate your arrest.
  • He can examine the actions of law enforcement.
  • He can analyze whether your rights were violated.
  • He can prevent the government from getting overly and unfairly aggressive.
  • He can negotiate on your behalf (to have your charges dropped or reduced or to have you admitted to a diversion program or put on probation instead of sent to jail).
  • He can aggressively defend your best interests, if a trial is unavoidable.

Do I need an Orlando drug crimes attorney for simple possession?

There is no such thing as "simple possession."

Possessing marijuana under 20 grams, for example, can result in:

  • A first degree misdemeanor conviction
  • A maximum of 365 days in jail
  • A $1,000 fine

Furthermore, prosecutors will sometimes seek additional penalties such as a substance abuse evaluation, counseling and treatment, random drug testing, and a mandatory two-year driver's license suspension.
