Colorado Drug Crimes
The Colorado criminal defense lawyers of McDermott Stuart & Ward LLP employ a variety of legal strategies to defend against drug crime charges including suppressing evidence and fighting possession. Our attorneys have vast experience litigating drug offenses ranging from Minor in Possession of Marijuana to large Federal Drug Conspiracy charges.
We work hard to secure great results for our clients working directly with them to craft the best defense possible. Our lawyers have years of experience defending drug related crimes and can find creative solutions in even the most complicated situations. In some of our drug crime cases we have recommended that our clients complete a drug rehabilitation program and have helped them do so. Creative tactics like this can greatly mitigate a sentence to a point where a case is dismissed or a permanent conviction is avoided.
Colorado Marijuana Crimes
The legalization of marijuana has led to an uptick in marijuana enforcement across Colorado. Although marijuana is legal in our state, people are still being prosecuted for marijuana related offenses including cultivation, conspiracy, DUI, and COCCA charges. Marijuana conspiracy charges are often complex and not easily handled by an inexperienced lawyer. Our firm has unmatched experience defending complicated matters and has secured great results in several high-profile marijuana distribution cases.
Colorado Drug Conspiracy Charges
McDermott Stuart & Ward LLP’s criminal attorneys have years of experience challenging drug conspiracy charges. A drug conspiracy consists of an agreement between two or more people and an “Overt Act.” Drug conspiracy penalties can be quite serious and a conviction can lead to decades of incarceration. Facing federal and state drug conspiracy charges can be overwhelming. In drug conspiracy cases, hiring the right lawyer from the outset of the case is important as an inexperienced lawyer will have difficulties with navigating discovery and will not know how to properly defend or try the case.
