The National Institute on Drug Abuse has estimated that hospitalizations from drug overdoses have increased, on average, in all parts of Arizona. While most of the increase is in Maricopa County, Pima County has also seen increases in methamphetamine overdose hospitalizations and opioid use on the whole. Drug addiction is a horrible, manipulative disease, but overcoming a drug addiction is often just as treacherous.
One of the most common charges to come through Arizona courts are drug possession cases. There are tons of variables that can affect which classification of charge is applied to your case, as well as the potential consequences that go along with that. Attorney Cohn is licensed to practice law in three different states and has experience trying drug cases in Tucson, AZ and the surrounding areas.
The consequences of being charged with a drug related crime, can drastically affect your life down the road. Your ability to get a job, rent an apartment and receive scholarship or grant money can go down the tubes if you don’t hire an attorney right away.
Edward F. Cohn Attorney at Law can help defend you against the following charges:
Once you’ve been arrested and charged with a drug crime in Tuscon, AZ, the prosecution has already gotten to work. There is always room for negotiating, and an expert like attorney Cohn can assess the facts in your case, and let you know the likely outcomes. He will fight with all of his resources to cut down your fines and jail time as much as possible.
Perhaps most importantly, Edward will not treat any person accused of a possession crime as “just another junkie” or a “lowlife addict.” To Edward, each client is a person with a story to tell and he will make sure that story is told. Each case is different and will be handled in an individualized fashion. If previous substance abuse treatment has previously been sought, it is helpful for Edward to know that at the consultation, as well as current steps taken to maintain sobriety. By the end of the case, the court will come to see the individual facing this addiction, not just the larger picture of the drug abuse trend.
