Fort Collins Cocaine Trafficking Lawyer
Experienced, Dignified Criminal Defense
Cocaine is one of the most commonly bought and sold drugs in the illicit drug market. Because cocaine is a highly-addictive substance and accessible, it has crept into the lives of virtually every walk of life: college students, hard-working family members, and business executives. It really comes as no surprise that virtually anyone from any socioeconomic demographic could face criminal drug charge involving the use of cocaine. Because cocaine is considered a Schedule II drug, meaning that it has an extremely high potential for abuse and can only be administered by a medical professional, the penalties of using or trafficking this substance are much more severe than that of marijuana.
With over 30 years of experience, I know how difficult drug cases can be. An arrest on cocaine use or trafficking charges can turn your life upside down. These charges can affect your personal life, your reputation, jeopardize your job, and leave you with penalties, fines and even jail time. I have witnessed the incredible losses involving drug use and know how devastating it can be for my clients. With this experience, I also know how to help my clients protect their rights and move forward. While there are stigmas attached to cocaine use, I work aggressively to defeat those stereotypes so that they will not adversely affect the charges or penalties in your case.

You Deserve a Second Chance and the Right to Move Forward

I pursue alternative remedies including deferred sentencing, time served in a treatment facility, and other alternatives to jail time.
Unlike some counties in Colorado, Larimer County has a Drug Court. The Drug Court uses an alternative approach where the system actively works with the defendant to address addiction issues. The goal of drug court is to facilitate recovery, resulting in a healthy, contributing member returned to the community.
Following a cocaine-related arrest, sorting out legal issues is only the first step. This is why I emphasize education. I will assist in your search to find a treatment program so you can get help from experts who understand where you are and what you need to get better:
