Dealing with Drug Possession Charges

He draws upon both his legal experience and his background as a member of various Louisiana law enforcement agencies to help you fight your drug charges.

Drug Charge Attorney

Sal can help with your defense against drug charges involving a variety of substances such as:

  • Cocaine
  • Marijuana
  • Heroin
  • Methamphetamine (Meth)

In addition, Sal remains current on the ever-expanding list of substances that are not allowed to be in your system if you are driving and that can lead to a DWI.

Some of the typical charges that Sal defends his clients against include:

  • Drug possession: When your case involves something such as marijuana possession, Sal uses his law enforcement background to make sure that proper police procedure was followed.
  • Possession with intent to distribute: In Louisiana, the penalties for this charge can be very severe, so contact Sal to make sure that your rights are protected!
  • Drug distribution: This is another area where Sal’s time spent as a police officer and his understanding of police procedure are of a great benefit to his clients.

Prescription drugs are now being sold and traded more than illegal drugs, and every day more people are being charged with crimes related to prescription medication. Even in cases where you have been prescribed medication by a doctor, an officer might arrest you for possessing a substance such as OxyContin without giving you an opportunity to prove that you were legally prescribed the medication. You need an experienced lawyer to help you fight these charges and get your record expunged.

Drug Possession

If you have been charged with possessing an illegal drug or controlled substance, you should speak to an experienced defense attorney as soon as possible. Prosecutors work diligently to convict alleged drug offenders, so you need someone on your side who will level the playing field and fight on your behalf.

This experience allows Sal to analyze your case through multiple lenses and to catch mistakes made by the arresting officer or the prosecution. Sal has built a reputation for providing aggressive, ethical defense representation that gets results.

Many factors go into drug possession cases, including the type of drug, the amount seized by police officers, whether the drug was possessed with the intention to sell and if a person has any prior drug-related convictions.

  • Cocaine

Drug crimes are taken very seriously by the state of Louisiana, and a conviction could impact you for many years down the road.

Prescription Drugs

Addiction or abuse of prescription drugs has become an epidemic in Louisiana. However, even though they may be legally possessed through a prescription, you could still end up being arrested and could face serious penalties. At Brocato Law Firm, PLC, you will find an experienced, aggressive advocate who will protect your rights and personally handle every aspect of your case.

If you have been charged with a prescription-drug-related crime, contact Sal’s office online today. You may also call his southern Louisiana law firm to schedule your free initial consultation.

Prescription Drug Crime and Drug Abuse Defense

Possession of a controlled dangerous substance (CDS) is a felony in Louisiana. So, if you are arrested for possession and/or distribution of prescription drugs, you will need an attorney who will fight for your rights. In some instances just providing a valid prescription to the prosecuting authority could resolve the case. In other instances, however, this will not be sufficient, especially if the prescription is dated or there are other circumstances surrounding the case.

Speak to Sal today if you are charged with a prescription drug crime involving:

  • Oxycodone (OxyContin)
  • Codeine
  • Vicodin
  • Percocet
  • Valium
  • Xanax
  • Demerol
  • Morphine
  • Many others
