Drug Charges

A greater variety of drug charge filing in state and federal courts is occurring than in the past. Besides drug possession or drug distribution charges involving marijuana or illegal narcotics, we're seeing a wide variety of drug arrests filed involving prescription medications. Conspiracy to distribute, transfer and/or sell drugs across state line charges often result in federal charges and extremely harsh penalties.

A Criminal Defense Attorney Providing You Personal Attention

You do not want to represent yourself in such matters. When selecting The Law Office of Cary L. Lackey, P.C., you will be working directly with me — someone with 20 years of criminal defense experience. As a drug crimes attorney, I do not hand my cases off to anyone else and will always make myself available for you.

Every drug crime is unique and requires individual attention. Cases involving minors are handled differently from those concerning adults. An immigrant facing drug charges has other concerns than just the criminal penalties being faced. I will personally review the police reports and complaints filed in your case, independently investigate the matter and make certain that every avenue of criminal defense is explored.

Fighting For Your Rights

There are often a number of privacy and other constitutional concerns that follow a drug arrest. A search of your home or vehicle may have been improper under a search warrant drawn up, or the search warrant may not even have been valid or obtained in the first place. It's possible that you have been implicated in a drug conspiracy due to testimony from a co-defendant who was trying to better his or her own sentence.

I have practiced in Arizona's state and federal courts. I am especially familiar with the way the Maricopa County courts operate. It is always my strategy to do what is best for you in every matter. In some cases this means negotiating a plea deal to reduce the sentence and penalties you are facing. In other instances, it means going to court and trying the case in front of a judge or jury. In my role as a lawyer, I am entirely comfortable taking whatever strategy is necessary. I will strive to keep improper evidence out of your case.
