Possession of Marijuana or Trafficking in Marijuana

 

Central Florida Criminal Defense.  Criminal defense in Orlando, and surrounding areas. Possession of marijuana is one of the most common criminal offenses that we see in Orange County, Osceola County, Seminole County, Volusia County, and Brevard County. Unfortunately, even in the face of changing public opinion, marijuana possession is still aggressively prosecuted by the State of Florida.  Whether or not you're charged with a misdemeanor possession of marijuana less than 20 grams, Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Sell, or Trafficking in Marijuana, ByrdLaw has the requisite experience to defend your rights in a court of law. 

 

In order to take advantage of all of your civil rights, you need a drug lawyer who has handled a high number of drug criminal cases.  Not all attorneys have handled many drug crimes and may not be aware that there are several different legal defenses and a plethora of potential motions to be filed in a drug possession case.  Remember. an adjudication of guilt on a drug possession charge will result in your driver's license being suspended for a period of one year (yes, even for simple marijuana possession). The following are examples of the variety of marijuana charges that we defend at the ByrdLaw Firm:
