Kalamazoo & Grand Rapids Drug Possession Lawyers

Being arrested or charged with drug possession can be a shock, especially if you have never had any brushes with law enforcement before. Because of the "war on drugs," police are continually stepping up enforcement, throwing a wide net to capture even occasional users and often prosecuting them to the fullest extent of the law.

You probably have some worrisome questions about your future:

  • Will I have to go to jail?
  • Will I lose my job or college financial aid?
  • What will happen to my driver's license or professional license?
  • Will I be able to legally own a firearm so I can go hunting with my family?

The penalties for simple possession can be quite severe. You could be facing jail time, fines and negative consequences for the rest of your life. You could become ineligible for federal student loans. Depending on the circumstances, you could lose your driver's license or other licenses required for your job.

Possession Charge Defense Attorneys

At Willis Law, we provide skilled representation to individuals charged with drug possession in Kalamazoo, in Grand Rapids and throughout West Michigan.

When we defend people accused of drug crimes, our first goal is to investigate the case thoroughly. It is sometimes possible to have the charges dismissed or a felony charge reduced to a misdemeanor. Our Kalamazoo attorneys will determine whether the search and seizure was done legally and whether you were charged with the correct offense.

It is not uncommon in Michigan for law enforcement to perform drug stings — allow an individual to incriminate him or herself by purchasing drugs from an authorized agent. If a sting was not executed properly, we may be able to pursue a dismissal of the charges, a reduction of the charges or a plea bargain.

Types of Drugs

The procedures we follow remain the same regardless of the type of drug alleged to be in your possession. We provide experienced, dedicated and aggressive defense to anyone charged with possessing:

  • Marijuana
  • Meth
  • LSD
  • Ecstasy
  • Heroin
  • Psychedelics
  • Drug paraphernalia
  • Cocaine (where possession of under 50g can lead to a jail term of up to four years and a $25,000 fine. Possession of more than 1kg could lead to lifetime imprisonment and a fine of up to $1 million.)
