Under the Influence of Drugs Lawyers

July 19, 2016

If you or a loved one has been charged with being Under the Influence of Drugs it is likely that you are facing an upcoming court date. New York laws are very tough on drugs and being arrested on any drug charge can mean facing severe penalties. In addition to possibly facing time behind bars and other penalties, drug charges can haunt you for the rest of your life. Due to the manner in which New York courts handle drug charges you are going to need an experienced attorney that will work hard to represent your case. At Raiser & Kenniff law firm we understand the seriousness of drug charges and are here to help you create a rock solid defense that will ensure the best possible outcome.

At Raiser & Kenniff, we understand that people make mistakes and that life often leads us into situations that cause us to make mistakes.

We have successfully helped many of our clients to fight and beat a variety of drug related charges.

If you have been charged with DWAI/Drug, or a DWAI/Combination in New York State, you are going to face serious penalties that can negatively affect your life. Typical penalties include the loss of driving privileges, heavy financial fines, as well as the possibility of a jail term. A loss of driving privileges is enough to ruin anyone’s life because it can lead to a possible loss of employment among other detrimental things.

Additionally, the loss of employment can lead to the inability to pay court fines, which leads to other issues. Our team of highly skilled lawyers will work hard to ensure this is not the outcome for you. A lot of people have made the mistake of thinking that any attorney is right for the job. Sadly, they have learned the hard way. An experienced lawyer definitely increases your chances of beating drug related charges. Our firm has been on both sides of court processes and knows exactly how to defend against all types of drug charges.

The legal penalties for being charged with being under the influence in any circumstance can be drastic. It could take years to rebuild what is lost, and that’s a high price to pay for a mistake. Even if it is not the first time you have been accused of drug related charges, it doesn’t make you a bad person that deserves to suffer forever. The penalties of drug charges can be eliminated or reduced with the right legal team on your side. Don’t make the mistake of hiring the wrong attorney. Contact Raiser & Kenniff today for a consultation and discover why our firm is the best possible choice for your defense.
