Facing Drug Charges? Call Us Right Away

Someone is arrested for violating a drug law every 17 seconds.

At Michael D. Dobbs, Attorneys at Law, our criminal defense lawyers don't treat you like a number. We understand that when it happens to you, it's different. We give you and your case the personal attention you deserve. That is why we treat you with respect — like a client, not a criminal.

Together, our attorneys have more than 50 years of experience defending clients against all types of drug charges, including:

  • Drug possession
  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Distribution
  • Manufacturing
  • Trafficking

Whether you were arrested for possession of marijuana, meth, heroin, or any other street drug or prescription medication (like Xanax, Percocet or OxyContin), we can help. Our law firm is well-known among the Ethiopian immigrant community for representing clients charged with possession of qat, also spelled "khat."

We Protect Your Rights

In every drug arrest, we carefully analyze the case to determine if there was an illegal stop, or an illegal search and seizure of evidence. If so, we will move to have the evidence obtained by these illegal actions suppressed, so it cannot be used against you.

We have succeeded in cases in which the police find a single joint in a vehicle and then charge everyone in the car with drug possession. The evidence was not sufficient to warrant the drug charges our clients faced.

Success in Challenging Cases

We have also succeeded in cases involving felony charges and misdemeanor charges which, on their face, seemed too difficult to win. In one, the police witnessed a drug sale, watching through binoculars. We persuaded the jury that the police had not followed proper procedure after the arrest, and our client was found not guilty.
