A criminal conviction for a drug crime often results in catastrophic consequences that may include a lengthy term of imprisonment, an extended period of probation, completion of a treatment programs, and loss of child custody rights. In addition, convictions of drug crimes will result in a mandatory suspension of driving privileges. In addition, you will have to pay outrageous fines, be subjected to community service requirements, face possible eviction from your home, and find it extremely difficult to obtain dignified housing and gainful employment. With a conviction for felony drug trafficking charges such as manufacture, delivery, or possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, it is vital that you defend yourself and your rights by acquiring a Pittsburgh drug charges lawyer who ensures that his clients are fairly represented, and given the quality defense services they deserve.
Attorney Gerson carefully examines police arrest records to determine whether an illegal search and seizure, or racial profiling, occurred. He has been consistently successful at negotiating reductions in charges, alternatives to jail time, probation without a verdict, boot camp for offenders (when eligible) and other options that mitigate the consequences of a drug crime conviction, especially when there have been violations of constitutional rights by charging officers.
