Colorado Springs Criminal Defense Lawyers
Defending Clients Against All Types of Drug Charges
While Colorado voters elected to legalize the possession of small amounts of marijuana for personal use, no one should be fooled into thinking that Colorado law enforcement is going easy on drug crimes. A drug-related conviction can still mean years behind bars, along with other extremely serious life-changing consequences. At Boal Law Firm, PC, in Colorado Springs, criminal defense lawyer Brian B. Boal puts his former prosecutorial experience to use for his clients. He can help you fight and defend against all types of serious charges involving the possession, distribution, and manufacturing of illegal narcotics like heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine, and prescription drugs, as well as offenses involving marijuana which is still illegal under federal law.
Be Represented by An Attorney Who Knows How To Handle These Serious Charges
Whether you are facing misdemeanor or felony charges, it is important that you take your case seriously. Even possession of a small amount of a scheduled narcotic could be enough to send you to prison and result in a permanent conviction on your record.
Additionally, remember that while personal possession of a small amount of marijuana is now legal in the state of Colorado, it is still a crime at the federal level, and you could face state and/or federal criminal charges for selling or distributing marijuana to others. Likewise, sharing or selling a prescription painkiller like Vicodin even if you yourself have a prescription is illegal.
Get A Former Prosecutor On Your Side
As a former prosecutor Brian Boal knows that drug offenses are sometimes overcharged to gain the accused’s cooperation. Prosecutors may charge you with intent to distribute because you were found in possession of drugs divided into small packages, even if you had no intent to sell anything. Attorney Boal will examine the evidence, and investigative reports and make informed determinations about whether:
- Police had a valid search warrant or other grounds to search your car or home
- Drugs found in your car or home actually belonged to you
- Whether the charged weight of drugs seized by the police was overstated
Because drug charges are so serious, you need an attorney like Brian Boal, who will put in the time and effort to defend you in the best possible manner based on the individual circumstances of your case. Brian Boal will be at your side every step of the way during your criminal case from start to finish.
