Misdemeanor & Felony Drug Defense Lawyer

Drug offenses can have a serious impact on your life if you are convicted. Even more so than other types of criminal offenses, drug offenses often carry a certain stigma that can hurt your chances of finding or keeping a job, getting into college, applying for a loan, or buying a house. If you are a licensed professional, a single drug offense could lead to the suspension or revocation of your license.

Raleigh misdemeanor and felony drug defense lawyer Jim Black understands that a single drug charge can hinder your freedoms and future opportunities. He has dedicated his career to helping those who need a strong legal defense. To speak with an experienced attorney about protecting your rights and livelihood, contact the Law Office of Jim Black by calling 919-600-4609.

Misdemeanor Drug Offenses

Possession of marijuana or drug paraphernalia is the most common misdemeanor drug offense that you may be charged with. If you are convicted of a misdemeanor drug offense, your sentence could include:

  • Jail time
  • Probation
  • Fines
  • Drug treatment
  • Community service
  • Felony Drug Offenses

A felony drug charge is usually reserved for more severe drug offenses or repeat offenses. It is a more serious charge than a misdemeanor and includes heavier penalties if you are convicted. Drug trafficking, manufacturing, possession with intent to deliver, or repeat possession offenses could lead to a felony charge. The sentence for a felony may include any of the above penalties as well as up to several years of prison time.
