South Carolina Drug Charge Defense Attorneys
If you, a loved one, friend or neighbor have been arrested and charged with a drug offense, you need the help of a lawyer to defend your rights under the law. The public views drug offenses as serious criminal charges. The South Carolina General Assembly has responded to public opinion by passing get-tough legislation including mandatory minimum sentences for many drug offenses. Without the assistance of a skilled and experienced criminal defense lawyer, you can end up facing a mandatory minimum prison term of 10 years or more.
The lawyers at Leventis & Ransom understand your rights and the Constitutional framework in which the criminal justice system works. We know how to get results. When you choose one of us to represent you on criminal charges, we will work tirelessly to see that you come through the system with your rights intact and with your unique circumstances taken into account in mitigation of any punishment.
We handle most drug crime cases on a fixed or flat-fee basis. After we learn about your case, we will provide you with specific information on the cost of our professional representation up front so you understand your options and can avoid surprises.
At Leventis & Ransom, we can help people in Columbia and throughout South Carolina with any drug charges, including:
- Simple Drug possession
- Possession of drugs with intent to distribute
- Possession in or near a school
- Drug trafficking
- Manufacture of drugs or controlled substances
Whether your case involves possession of marijuana, sale of cocaine, manufacturing of meth-amphetamine, or any type of drug charge, our criminal law attorneys are here to help you understand your options and mitigate any punishment.
We know the value of trial. From the very start, we will assemble your case with the strength to go the distance. We will examine the evidence and seek dismissal if possible, or negotiate with the prosecution to minimize the punishment if that is the best course. Whatever the circumstances, we are comfortable standing up for your rights in a court of law.
