Drug Crimes

Take These Charges Seriously

Prosecutors in Georgia aggressively seek convictions in drug cases, and the penalties upon conviction are severe. If you have been charged with a drug crime, you need strong and effective representation as soon as possible.

McCamy, Phillips, Tuggle & Fordham, LLP, in Dalton, Georgia, is a criminal defense law firm with extensive experience in drug crime cases. We vigorously defend people facing state and federal drug charges, seeking the best possible outcome for every client. When we defend you, we will use our experience and trial advocacy skills to fight for your rights and freedom.

Defense For A Variety Of Charges

Our law firm defends people accused of these drug crimes:

  • Drug possession
  • Sale or possession with intent to distribute
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Cultivation of marijuana
  • Manufacture of methamphetamine
  • Illegal possession of prescription drugs
  • Other drug crimes

In your case, we will undertake a comprehensive defense effort. We will thoroughly examine the events leading to your arrest, with particular interest in the manner in which the police found the drugs in question.

Our attorneys are well-versed in defenses based on Fourth Amendment rights. For example, if the police used illegal search-and-seizure methods or the search warrant is not legally valid, it may be possible to suppress the evidence that was acquired. This could open the door for the dismissal of charges or another positive outcome. Whenever possible, we will seek to suppress evidence that was obtained illegally. If necessary, we will defend you tenaciously at trial.

First-Time Drug Offenders

Some people charged with felony drug crimes may be eligible for the Conasauga Drug Court Program. If the offender is accepted and successfully completes the treatment program and the probated sentence, no felony conviction will be entered into the person's record. Our drug defense attorneys have helped many people in this way, and we welcome the opportunity to discuss this possibility with you.
