Choosing the right criminal defense attorney could mean the difference in your case. Instead of prison time, your could get probation, be sent to substance abuse treatment, or even walk free. Our experienced attorneys will aggressively fight your drug charges and help you as an active participant in your own defense.

Types of Drug Cases We Handle

Drug crimes are categorized either as misdemeanors or felonies. Whether you are charged with one or the other will determine the severity of the penalties. Convictions are also punishable by both Michigan and federal law.

Drug felony crimes carry much harsher sentences, such as lengthy prison sentences. Misdemeanors, on the other hand, usually only result in fines or jail terms of less than one year. Repeated drug crime offenses will increase the severity of the penalties.

At Christenson & Fiederlein, PC, we have extensive trial experience handling the legal issues around various drug charges, including:

  • Use of a controlled substance: This misdemeanor offense carries jail time of less than one year. It also carries fines which are often less than $1,000.
  • Illegal drug possession: Depending on the substance in possession, penalties vary. For example, methamphetamine possession is a felony, punishable by up to 10 years in prison and $15,000 in fines. The amount of the drug in the offender’s possession is also a factor in sentencing. Possession of marijuana, by contrast, is usually only a misdemeanor, depending on the amount.
  • Drug trafficking: This drug crime is considered a serious felony offense. Section 333.7401 of the Michigan Public Health Code defines trafficking as creating or delivering a controlled substance to earn a profit. You may be slapped with fines upwards of hundreds of thousands of dollars. Drug trafficking includes illicit street drugs such as crack cocaine, as well as controlled substances like Vicodin or Oxycodone.
  • Prescription Drug Charges: Prescription drug abuse is affecting all of U.S. society as the opioid crisis continues to surge. Michigan has tough laws to combat the abuse of prescription drugs, especially in cases of trafficking.
