Heroin Lawyer in Akron

Charged with heroin possession?

Drug crimes carry some very severe penalties if you are convicted. Heroin and similar drugs (ecstasy, LSD, illegal prescription medications) are never legal, and if you are caught selling, possessing, or trafficking any of them, your future will be drastically changed.

At my criminal defense law firm in Akron, Christopher G. Thomarios, Esq. LLC, clients can find dedicated representation. I have over 10 years of experience in successfully defending clients charged with drug crimes. I know that just because you have been charged with a crime does not automatically mean you are guilty.

My Approach to Your Case

When defending a client charged with possession or trafficking in heroin, I conduct a thorough investigation into the facts of the arrest and surrounding circumstances. It is not enough to rely on police reports or even some witness accounts. I pursue my own in-depth investigation, which can also include utilizing independent witnesses who conduct their own examinations of the drug in question.

It has happened that a person has been charged with trafficking in heroin, and the "heroin" was found to be a different substance. Other defenses can include challenging whether the police followed established procedures in their investigation and arrest, the credibility of witnesses, and many others.

Penalties for Heroin Possession

A conviction for possession or trafficking of heroin is serious. You could be facing 6 months in jail to as much as 10 years or more in prison, with fines ranging from $2,500 to $20,000. You would also incur a criminal record, putting a significant barrier to future opportunities. You need skilled representation with an experienced attorney who puts your rights and freedom as priorities.

When you want to maximize your chances of avoiding jail or prison, contact me as soon as possible for excellent legal assistance.
