Washington has one of the highest arrest records for marijuana in the nation. In our 20 combined years of defending clients charged with marijuana offenses, we at Wickens Law Group have represented hundreds of clients charged with these types of crimes, helping them to reach a fair result that protects them, their loved ones and their future. While it is a misdemeanor to possess 40 grams or less of marijuana, possession of other controlled substances constitutes a felony under Washington law.
If you have been charged with a felony that falls within the Violation of the Uniform Controlled Substances Act (VUCSA), you may be facing serious consequences that can have long-term negative effects on education, financial aid and employment opportunities. Considering the stakes of these charges, it is critical to partner with an attorney experienced in defending clients charged with drug crimes.
Puyallup Marijuana Defense Attorney
As lawyers we at Wickens Law Group are committed to using our more than 20 years of combined experience to help you arrive at an ideal resolution in all cases drug-related cases, including:
- Drug paraphernalia
- Possession with intent to distribute
- Drug sale
- Prescription fraud
Prosecutors will often try to demonstrate that someone who possessed even a small amount of a substance had intent to sell or deliver drugs. The possible punishment escalates considerably for these types of charges when one is accused of delivery or intent to deliver, so it is critical to put forth the strongest possible defense.
At Wickens Law Group, we are committed to analyzing how all evidence was obtained in these cases and ensuring that your rights were preserved at every stage. If your rights were violated in an illegal search or seizure we can work to get this evidence dismissed.
Because we have worked on these cases on both the local and federal level and in the court of appeals, there is no circumstance for which we are not prepared.
