Worcester County Drug Possession Lawyer

Drug Possession and Distribution Defense Lawyer in Worcester, Massachusetts

Many Massachusetts and federal drug laws have become increasingly complex and strict over the past several decades. Conviction on a drug possession charge — even arising from having a small amount of a substance you might consider to be harmless — has a way of coloring your prospects and future in seriously negative ways. Drug convictions can be life altering, as student financial aid can be terminated, eligibility for housing denied and government DNA testing compulsory. Prison sentences are more severe than ever, with habitual offender and career criminal sentencing enhancements even further raising the stakes.

If you have been charged with misdemeanor or felony drug possession in Worcester or Middlesex counties, you need the best lawyer that you can find and we encourage you to contact our firm for a free consultation with Worcester County drug possession attorney Daniel W. Cronin. You can benefit from a nonjudgmental, caring assessment of your situation by a defender who will speak directly and prioritize obtaining the best overall outcome for you.

Gain a Clear Sense of What You Are Up Against and Your Legal Options

It is important to fully understand considerations such as these:

  • You do not have to be charged with trafficking or distribution of drugs for your situation to be serious.
  • Even a civil violation for possession of marijuana can cost you your driver’s license, and student loans are commonly revoked after drug possession convictions.
  • Drug possession charges involving marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, “party drugs” like Ecstasy, and prescription drugs including Vicodin, OxyContin, Xanax and others call for proven, serious criminal defense representation.
