Drug Crimes in Athens & Lancaster


If you are facing charges involving a drug-related crime, you need a strong defense from an experienced attorney. With the potential for fines, jail time and other serious consequences, as well as damage to your reputation in the community and your future prospects, you cannot afford to take these charges lightly.

As a lawyer providing drug crimes defense for Lancaster and Athens, Ohio, clients, I have more than 25 years of experience and extensive knowledge that I can use to provide you a strong defense in difficult times.

I defend clients against drug charges ranging from simple misdemeanor marijuana possession to cultivation of marijuana and felony drug possession. I can defend you against the charges you are facing.


I do not take my clients' cases lightly. Rather, I use every option available to fight for my clients, including:

  • Forensic evidence: I have training and experience in evaluating and defending toxicology experts and other technical evidence.
  • Errors in police procedure: Many drug crime cases can be defeated by uncovering errors in the police investigation, arrest or interrogation. I have vast experience exploring these factors to suppress evidence and get the cases against my clients dismissed.
  • Case preparation: I have a long-standing reputation for being over-prepared for my clients' defense. I always take the time to come up with the best strategy possible in the courtroom based on each unique situation.
  • Sound strategy and courtroom advocacy: I use my experience to determine whether a plea bargain is the best option or whether it is better to fight the case in court. I know the law and the procedures involved to get the best outcome possible.
