Drug Possession / Distribution

Were you picked up in a drug raid or roadway stop and charged with drug possession or distribution? Depending upon the types of drugs involved, the amounts in your possession, and your past criminal history, you could be facing jail or prison time.

The charge of "drug possession with the intent to distribute" (PWID) can be a felony charge that leaves you vulnerable to mandatory/minimum sentencing guidelines.

When you face the possibility of a lengthy jail term, you want an aggressive defense attorney who knows how the systems works, who will fight to protect you in court. At the law office of Cooper Law Firm, we've been protecting people's rights in drug crime cases in Maryland and Washington D.C. since 1971.

We have handled hundreds of drug crimes cases involving crack, cocaine, ecstasy, marijuana, methamphetamines, and illegal possession and sale of prescription drugs. We provide the strong, aggressive defense you need, especially in complex cases. Contact our Silver Spring law office to talk to a defense lawyer about your case.

We Fight the Charges

We don't urge our clients to plead guilty, but we do carefully weigh the options, given the facts of the case. Jury trials can be risky. We've taken hundreds of drug crimes cases to trial and can tell you how we think a jury is likely to see your case. We will also explain the likelihood of a successful plea bargain for reduced charges or alternative sentencing.

We have a full-time, licensed private investigator on staff (a former homicide lieutenant and special assistant to a U.S. Marshall) to help us investigate and build your case. With these facts in hand, we can advise you on the best approach to take, whether that is negotiating for an alternate sentence or a reduced charge, or going to trial. Whatever we do, we always seek the best outcome possible for our clients.
