Columbia County Marijuana Possession Lawyer

Simple possession of marijuana for personal use is a misdemeanor in Pennsylvania. However, even a misdemeanor conviction will result in a permanent criminal record that could affect your ability to find a job or obtain a professional license. You also face loss of your driver's license for six months. Selling marijuana, regardless of the amount, is a felony.

As a criminal defense lawyer with more than 18 years of experience handling drug charges in the Columbia County area, I will take great care to minimize the effect of a marijuana arrest on your life. My law office is conveniently located on Main Street in downtown Bloomsburg, one block from the Columbia County courthouse and within walking distance of Bloomsburg University.

Keeping Your Record As Clean As Possible

I defend people charged with all types of marijuana offenses, including:

  • Misdemeanor marijuana possession
  • Possession of more than 30 grams of marijuana with intent to deliver or distribute
  • Possession or sale of paraphernalia used in growing, harvesting, processing, selling, storing or using marijuana
  • Growing, harvesting, manufacturing or distribution of marijuana

As your lawyer, my goal is to keep your record as clean as possible. If this is a first offense, I will work hard to negotiate a resolution that allows you to avoid a drug conviction. Even if you have past arrests, it may be possible to avoid a conviction if the police violated your constitutional rights in the search and seizure of drug evidence. I am willing and able to defend your rights in court if necessary.
