Distribution of Marijuana or Narcotics:
Narcotics cases almost always involve searches of cars, homes, and one’s personal effects. If police fail to execute a search warrant properly, search your car without probable cause, or fail to read you your rights after you have been placed in custody, the evidence they collect may be inadmissible in court.
As your lawyer, Joel Jackson inspects every detail of your arrest and will vigorously defend your state and federal constitutional rights. Joel Jackson will promptly motion the court to dismiss any case where evidence is improperly collected or where you constitutional rights were violated.
Working for the Best Outcome for You:
In situations where your guilt is not in question, Joel Jackson will seek to work with prosecutors and the court to explore alternatives to convictions or lengthy prison sentences. Depending on a client’s past criminal record or lack thereof, Joel Jackson will seek to persuade the court to take charges under advisement or reduce charges by taking into account the client’s standing in the community, prior good history, or other mitigating facts that may persuade the prosecutor or judge toward leniency.
For first time, non-violent offenders, Joel Jackson will negotiate with the prosecutor or prepare a hearing with the judge where he will advocate that his client be considered for a “first-time offender program,” which would allow the client to avoid jail time and a conviction.
The Attorney to Turn to When You Have A Drug Charge:
Responding to the increase of drugs in all levels of society, legislators and law enforcement have taken a “get tough” policy toward people who are charged with drug violations. Those charged with felony drug possession, trafficking, or narcotics possession and/or distribution now face lengthy prison sentences and heavy fines if they are convicted. Joel Jackson has aggressively defended the rights of those accused in drug possession and other drug related legal infractions. Joel has negotiated hundreds of plea bargains that have kept his clients out of jail, and any many circumstances, has lead to dismissals. Joel Jackson will interview witnesses, review police procedures and challenge the prosecution’s case on the basis of facts and evidence to prepare for trial and/or a plea bargain.
