A Serious Defense For Serious Drug Charges
Drug offenses continue to be vigorously prosecuted in Tennessee, despite many questions about whether the current penalties associated with drug crimes are too severe.
I am a veteran criminal defense lawyer who has earned a reputation as an outstanding advocate in and out of the courtroom. When you work with Mark Scruggs Trial Attorney, you get the benefit of over 38 years’ experience and trial skills. I have earned a reputation as a top Nashville criminal defense attorney.
Defending Against State And Federal Drug Charges
I defend against state and federal charges involving:
- Drug possession
- Drug trafficking
- Felony conspiracy
- Drug-related crimes such as prescription fraud, theft and DUI
Protecting Your Constitutional Rights And Legal Interests
The evidence federal and state authorities use to obtain convictions in drug cases often involves the use of wiretaps and other means of electronic surveillance. I am an avid protector of the rights granted under the U.S. Constitution. If the police or other authorities violated your constitutional right against unreasonable searches and seizures, I will persuasively and aggressively argue for that evidence to be thrown out of court.
In addition to contesting evidence possibly obtained in violation of your Fourth Amendment rights, I will discuss with you other potential options, including whether alternative sentencing, such as drug court, is appropriate for you. If you want to obtain treatment, diversion programs can minimize penalties, or you may have the charges against you dropped.
