Law enforcement officials in Cincinnati have charged many people with various drug-related crimes, from drug possession to drug distribution. No matter what type of drug crime charges, the attorneys at Arenstein & Gallagher can help defend against these charges and do our best to ensure the best possible outcome.
During our initial consultation, our goal is to get an accurate, full-picture of the circumstances surrounding the arrest. If we proceed as the accused’s attorneys, it will be our goal to collect as much evidence as possible to come up with a strong defense strategy. We will contact any and all possible witnesses, gather police reports and other documentation and collect any other possible evidence that could help our case. Acting quickly is crucial as gathering evidence may become more challenging the longer we wait.
Once we have collected all the evidence, we will figure out the best strategy for moving forward. In some cases, we may recommend that a plea deal. A plea deal allows the accused to plead guilty to a lesser charge, which may save one from a lengthy criminal trial, and lessen the severity of the penalties.
In other cases, we may decide to proceed to trial. It is important to remember that the prosecutors have the burden of proof. In other words, it is our job to poke holes in the prosecutors’ arguments and present an effective defense to show that there is not enough evidence to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. With years of experience helping clients in the Ohio area, we can help those facing criminal charges.
