What are motions to suppress evidence?

Once you hire us, we begin an immediate investigation into the facts of your case. Some drug charges, for example, are dismissed because of illegally obtained evidence. The United States and Pennsylvania Constitutions protect you against unlawful search and seizure. If you believe that drugs or paraphernalia were unlawfully seized, we can defend your rights in court.

  • A police officer must have a reason to stop you or pull you over.
  • A police officer cannot search your home or your vehicle, without probable cause, except under very specific circumstances.
  • A police officer must have a warrant or permission to enter and search your home.
  • Illegally obtained evidence cannot be used against you in court.

We offer strategic drug crimes defense,

When you’re facing drug trafficking charges, the government must prove that you had the intent to distribute. Our attorneys can defend the charges that have been brought against you in cases where your intention was simply to use drugs, rather than distribute or deliver them.

and handle cases involving drug charges and police raids.

If the police raid a house and find drugs, they may charge everyone present in the house. If you were at a house when a police raid occurred, and then you were charged with possession of drugs or possession with the intent to distribute drugs, you need immediate legal assistance. Our attorneys will initiate an intensive investigation to assemble evidence for your defense.

We help first time offenders get their life back on track.

Drug charges are excellent candidates for probation before judgment. If it’s your first offense, deferred adjudication gives you the opportunity to submit to a period of probation without admitting guilt. Following this, the incident is removed permanently from your record. We recognize that many people are driven to commit drug crimes out of desperation. An arrest often serves as a powerful wakeup call that can be instrumental in getting the individual’s life back on track. If this is the case, probation before judgment gives you the chance to do so without incurring any long-term legal consequences.

Probation before judgment is just one of the many options a drug possession lawyer will consider when reviewing your case. The first step is to sit down and review the specifics of the arrest — that’s where MPL Law Firm’s drug charges lawyers come in.
