Drug possession or paraphernalia charges can result in lasting consequences that can impact your future. Do not assume that these charges are not serious and just plead guilty. Having a drug crime conviction on your criminal history can make it difficult to secure a job, a loan, housing and more. Under new legislation, a drug conviction can impact your eligibility for certain types of state and federal assistance. An experienced drug crime defense attorney can counsel you as to your options and their repercussions. Lawyer Michael J. Macht can help you pursue the best option available for securing the results you need, and he can help you protect your future opportunities.
