Cases We Handle
At Ross & Pines, we have been extremely successful in challenging unlawful searches and seizures throughout the state of Georgia in both state and federal courts, resulting in the exclusion of evidence and the dismissals of cases. We have successfully fought many search and seizure cases up to the Georgia Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court of Georgia.
We understand the rights that our Constitution gives us against unreasonable searches and seizures and we know how police officers try to violate those rights. We are successful because we take the time to thoroughly investigate each case and gather the evidence needed to convince a judge that an illegal search and seizure occurred. Our Atlanta criminal defense lawyers are available to handle all state and federal drug charges.
We handle all kinds of drug crimes cases, including:
- Drug Possession
- Drug Trafficking
- Marijuana Crimes
- Prescription Drug Crimes
- Drug Sale
- Drug Manufacturing & Cultivation
- Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
Illegal Searches & Seizures Violate Your Rights
We have seen the way that many jurisdictions "fight the war on drugs" on the highways of the state of Georgia. Law enforcement officers usually pull people over for a reason completely unrelated to a drug charge. Typically, these officers will say that they observed a minor traffic violation, when in fact there was no traffic violation; then they find a reason to conduct a search or try to trick you into giving them consent to search your vehicle. You are not required to consent and you should exercise your right to refuse consent.
Sometimes, law enforcement officers will say that they smelled drugs in the car to justify the search; sometimes officers will unlawfully detain people on the side of the highway; and sometimes officers will say you gave consent to search your car. More often than not, these searches are illegal and in violation of the Fourth Amendment, which prohibits illegal searches and seizures. Even if you consented to a search of your car or person, the search may be in violation of your constitutional rights.
Immigration, Drug Crimes & Deportation
Drug convictions have additional consequences to non-citizens. Many criminal defense attorneys are not aware of the immigration laws that impact their clients who are not citizens. These lawyers are not aware that most drug convictions can lead to deportation. As a result, those lawyers may tell a noncitizen client to plead guilty to a lesser drug charge in order to avoid jail time, a heavy fine, or a conviction on a more serious charge.
Unfortunately, even though a more serious drug charge may be reduced to a lesser offense, it may be a deportable offense in the eyes of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Well-versed in both criminal defense and immigration law, our legal team has the versatility needed to defend noncitizens facing drug crime allegations.
