IF YOU HAVE BEEN CHARGED WITH A DRUG OFFENSE
IF YOU HAVE BEEN CHARGED WITH A CRIMINAL DRUG OFFENSE AND ARE STRUGGLING TO UNDERSTAND WHAT YOUR RIGHTS ARE CALL GROTH & ASSOCIATES TODAY FOR YOUR CONSULTATION.
The most important thing to remember when you are facing a drug charge or any other criminal charge is that you have the right to consult with a lawyer before speaking with law enforcement. You also have the right to refuse to consent to a search of your vehicle or home if the officer requesting the search does not have a search warrant. If you are under investigation for any drug-related charge, contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer to determine what to say and what not to say. The police may try to coax a confession from you or put you into a position where you feel you need to “cooperate” in order to avoid a strict penalty. Be polite with officers, but remember that they are not “on your side.”
WORDS FROM OUR CLIENTS
Our experience with Attorney Stevin Groth was nothing short of life changing.ALFRED & JENNIFER
When we first contacted Mr. Groth, he gave us his cell phone number and we were able to directly contact him day or night. His knowledge of the Ohio judicial system was astounding. He handled all aspects of our case himself, never once handing off our case to jr. associates. Stevin had positive relationships with all the judges, district attorneys and court personal that we came in contact with. Stevin’s persuasive arguments on our son’s behalf cleared him of all charges. Because of Stevin’s abilities, our son is able to move forward with his life without the stigma of a criminal record. We could not recommend Stevin Groth more highly.

HOW WE CAN HELP YOU DEFEND YOUR CASE
When you are facing a drug charge, your lawyer’s job is to guide you through interactions with the police and the court system and use available evidence to prove that you are not guilty of the charge. Although it is certainly possible to go through this process on your own, you have a much better chance of having your charge lowered or dismissed if you work with an attorney who has experience working with clients facing the type of charge you are facing.
If you have been charged with a drug-related offense, do not assume that you will simply have to accept your conviction and the penalties that accompany it. You can defend your case and potentially have your charge lowered or even dropped.
