Finally, we work closely with our clients to determine the possible defense strategies. When you are facing a cocaine possession and/or distribution charge you should know the following:
1. A deserve a lawyer that listens to you.
Your initial consultation may feel overwhelming because of the number of questions you will be asked. Make sure that you have an open and honest conversation during this time. Remember:
Finding out what you are facing is crucial. You can find out what the District Attorney has by requesting discovery. This will also give you the opportunity to file motions (ex. Motion to Suppress), demand additional evidence and make important decisions about the plan for your case. Better even, you can talk to witnesses, go to the alleged crime scene, get evidence tested, etc. Your lawyer can do that for you.
3. The law can work for you.
You have Constitutional rights that are meant to protect you. These rights are most important when you are facing such serious charges. The catch is that you often must know that your rights have been violated, request the court to honor/correct it (via motions, hearing and/or objections), and continue to fight this battle should your case go to trial.
4. Weigh your risks.
Giving statements. Consenting to searches. Admitting to crimes. Meeting with the District Attorney alone. Agreeing to plea deals without legal advice. And many more risks must be carefully taken. Most of the time, any one of, those will work against your own interests. You need to take calculated, strategic risks. Always keep in mind that your freedom and future are what you are playing with.
5. Consider all of your options.
