Pensacola Prescription Drug Crimes Lawyers

Serving Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa and Walton Counties

Protecting You from the Penalties Associated with Prescription Drug Charges

While prescription drugs can be medically beneficial in the proper environments, the state of Florida takes a severe stance against individuals using and distributing them outside of legal channels. Prescription drug charges carry many of the same penalties as other drug charges, and can lead to hefty fines, jail time, mandatory drug counseling and probation. If you have been charged with a prescription drug crime, it is important to understand your rights and your options for defending yourself.

At the law firm of Michael J. Griffith, P.A., our Pensacola prescription drug crimes attorneys leverage more than 35 years of experience to offer aggressive defense guidance to clients facing a number of prescription drug related offenses, including:

  • Possession without a prescription
  • Distribution
  • Trafficking

Whatever your specific charges may be, our staff will offer the informative and aggressive defense guidance you need to avoid unnecessary harm to your future and your freedom.

Attacking the Validity of Your Charges

Rather than let the prosecution dictate your proceedings, we take your defense on the offensive. This means that we will examine every aspect of your case to determine if your rights have been violated in any way, if the prosecution can uphold its burden of proving your guilt and if all evidence against you is valid and was obtained in a legal manner.

Any information gained during our review of your case will then be used to pressure the prosecution into reducing or dismissing your charges, or offering more favorable plea terms. Whether you wish to negotiate a plea, or want to challenge your charges in court, we will not rest in our efforts to provide the quality defense you need to protect your future.
