Drug Crimes Dedicated to Protecting the Rights of the Accused

Gardnerville Drug Crimes Attorney

Care & Competency in all Drug Crime Arrests or Investigations

Drug arrests are common in Nevada where, with the exception of the personal use of up to only one ounce of marijuana, all drug possession and other drug crimes are charged as felonies. Felonies are those crimes carrying more than a year of incarceration in addition to steep fines. In some cases, first offenders may be able to avoid a felony conviction by completing a drug education class or through drug court, which is a rehabilitation program. This is a definite advantage in view of the fact that a felony record can be detrimental to obtaining employment, career advancement, housing, and other life opportunities.
