Leveling The Playing Field For Defendants In Serious Methamphetamine Cases
When facing drug charges, you’re always facing a serious situation where your future freedom and rights could be at stake. But when it comes to methamphetamine charges in Michigan, the stakes are never higher. That’s because methamphetamine prosecution in our state is treated differently than other drug crimes. Defendants face an uphill battle against prosecutors and judges who often seek severe punishments that can mean years in prison, hefty fines and potentially serious damage to your reputation and ability to remain a productive member of society.
At Williams & Associates, we understand what’s at stake and how to act quickly and correctly to protect your rights, your best interests and your future. We extensive experience handling a wide range of drug charges, including methamphetamine possession, sale and distribution charges. We understand the complexity of the situation ahead of you as well as the pressures you might be facing from prosecutors. We will use more than 35 years of criminal defense and trial experience to make sure the outcome of your case is fair and in your best interests.
We Understand Your Situation And Your Rights
It’s very important to understand that regardless of how much methamphetamine was in your possession at the time of your arrest, you will face felony charges in Michigan.
Although first-time offenders may be offered a lighter sentence – such as probation in exchange for attending a drug treatment program – there is no guarantee that prosecutors or judges will make this offer. Depending on the circumstances of your case, you could face upwards of 10 years in prison in addition to the possibility of thousands of dollars in fines. Additionally, even plea deals that sound enticing because they reduce jail time or result in immediate release and probation may not be in your best interests. They can still result in felony charges on your record, which can impact your ability to maintain employment or gain new employment, rent or lease property, and for young adults, it can impact your ability to attend college, receive scholarships or even receive federal funding for schooling.
With so much at stake, it’s important to speak to a skilled criminal defense attorney as soon as you are arrested. At Williams & Associates, our lead attorney takes immediate action in your case. He works as a team with a network of highly experienced criminal defense attorneys to carefully review the charges against you to determine the full scope of your case. Based on his findings and that of his collogues, he will formulate a defense strategy that will seek the best possible outcome for you.
Attorney Williams is not afraid to call attention to mistakes made by law enforcement, prosecutors and judges. If the charges against you are disproportionate to the situation or the opposition has made an error in their interpretation of the law, he will make sure this gets called attention to and addressed accordingly. In some previous cases he has handled, this attention to detail and tenacity has resulted in charges being dropped and cases being dismissed.
