Drug Crimes

Michigan attorney Nicholas Leydorf has represented clients accused of a variety of drug-related crimes, both minor and serious. At the Leydorf Law Firm, our goal is to ensure that our clients get the full protection of their constitutional rights, and that any evidence against them is challenged aggressively both before and, if necessary, during trial.

Cases previously handled by the Leydorf Law Firm have involved charges of drug possession, possession with intent to deliver, distribution, manufacturing, trafficking, and importation of illegal substances, including:

  • Marijuana
  • Mushrooms
  • LSD
  • Heroin
  • Cocaine
  • Crack
  • Methamphetamine

In addition, the Leydorf Law Firm has represented clients accused of illegally obtaining prescription drugs such as

  • Vicodin
  • Oxycontin
  • Nitrous oxide (laughing gas)
  • Adderol
  • Ritalin

Charges such as abusing or forging a prescription are quite serious. Like a OWI or drunk driving conviction, any drug-related conviction is likely to mean not only incarceration and fines but also the life-long stigma of having a criminal record.

The number of drug-related arrests has been steadily increasing, and most of the drug-related convictions involve relatively small amounts of drugs. Regardless of the type of charges or the amounts of drugs involved, trying to resolve any criminal case without the benefit of counsel is a risky proposition. An effective criminal defense lawyer would thoroughly review the case against a client, including any collateral issues--such as the alleged use of weapons in connection to a crime--and plan a strong defense. If our firm is entrusted with your representation, we will challenge the results of any chemical testing and any other evidence against you, and closely assess the procedures involved in your arrest, to ensure that no illegally obtained evidence is used against you.
