WHAT WE DODrug trafficking charges are serious

Police may ask you to "cooperate" in their investigation with an assurance of lenient treatment. Don't make hasty decisions that can not be undone with out talking to a lawyer first.

Under North Carolina law, possession of certain amounts of a controlled substance can result in a conviction for a trafficking offense that carries a mandatory prison sentence, even for a first-time offender.

If you have been charged with drug trafficking or drug sale or delivery, you need to take immediate action to protect your rights.

Experience defending against drug trafficking charges

As our client at the Law Offices of Ronald J. Shook, you will be represented by a lawyer that has handled a wide range of cases, including drug cases involving simple possession, trafficking in methamphetamine over 400g, and trafficking in marijuana in excess of 10,000 pounds. From MDMA (Ecstacy) to synthetic drugs – he has defended against charges relating to many types of illegally controlled substance.

Defense strategies and negotiations

As your defense attorney, Mr. Shook has an obligation to make sure your constitutional rights were not violated during all phases of your arrest and proceedings.

Drug charges against you may be dismissed or reduced to a lesser prison sentence (or perhaps even probation) because:

  • The officer did not have a valid reason to stop you, or search you, your vehicle or your home.
  • Your consent to the search was not free and voluntary or the officer exceeded the scope of your consent.
  • The officer cannot prove that YOU were in possession of the drugs or control of the place where the drugs were found.

Why you shouldn’t just hire any attorney

Since drug cases often involve years in prison and other serious repercussions, clients should seriously consider whether their case should be handled by a novice defense attorney. Ron Shook has the knowledge and the negotiation and litigation skills to handle your case.
