Have You Been Accused of Possessing Heroin?
In Milwaukee and throughout Wisconsin, criminal prosecutors often take a much harsher approach to charges of heroin possession than to charges involving possession of other drugs. This is partially due to the stigma associated with heroin use, not to mention the media attention received by heroin overdoses and deaths. If you have been accused of possessing heroin, you want a lawyer on your side who understands how prosecutors work and is willing to counter the hard-line approach they use in these drug charges.
At Courtney & Molter, our lawyers have been defending people against heroin possession charges for more than 30 years. We know that, now more than ever, prosecutors may be less willing to negotiate. They may not be willing to offer drug diversion programs or other alternatives, instead pressing for the maximum penalty. We know that we will have to aggressively protect your rights and your future.
In order to succeed, we need to carefully examine your case. We will review the steps the police took prior to arresting you. Did they have probable cause or did illegal search and seizure take place? If there was a warrant, was it accurate and used properly? Are there mitigating factors that need to be taken into consideration? We will get all the information we need to build a strong defense strategy. If prosecutors are unwilling to negotiate, we will go to trial to defend you against heroin possession charges.
