If you have been charged with possession or distribution of narcotics in Michigan — or if you suspect that you are under investigation after narcotics paraphernalia was found in your home, your car or your locker at school, you are strongly urged to contact a lawyer at Schwartz Law Firm.
Common Scenarios for Narcotics Distribution Charges
Some common illegal narcotics in Michigan and elsewhere include cocaine, heroin, ecstasy (or "e"), and illegally distributed prescription medications such as Vicodin, Valium, OxyContin and analog drugs, which are chemically similar to narcotics.
You may be found to be in "possession" of these and other illegal substances if they are in your pocket, in your purse, in your backpack, in your briefcase, in your car's glove compartment or in your home. Charges of "intent to distribute" drugs may result from the amount of drugs that are found to be in your possession or the way they are stored: in bundles apparently ready for sale, for example.
Criminal charges involving these or other narcotics or narcotic-like drugs amount to a legal emergency that requires your focused efforts — for the sake of your liberty and your future.

A conviction for possession or distribution of illegal narcotics can stain your record for a lifetime. A criminal record will follow you everywhere in some form or another, with negative consequences in your career and personal life. The power of the stigma cannot be overstated. You are advised to contact a criminal defense attorney at our Farmington Hills law offices at your earliest convenience if you have been investigated, accused or charged with a narcotics possession or distribution crime.
