The Right Legal Response To Drug Possession Or Paraphernalia Charges

Drug possession or paraphernalia charges can result in lasting consequences that can impact your future. Do not assume these charges are not serious. 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. The experienced criminal defense attorneys at Macht & Schechet, PLLC, in Asheville can counsel you as to your options and their repercussions.
