Take Your Possession Charges Seriously

People who face drug possession charges in New Jersey need to know about their options. Do not handle the case on your own or accept a deal before you understand your rights.

I am attorney Michael Policastro, and I offer free initial legal consultations to people facing drug charges, involving prescription drugs and street drugs, in and around Middlesex County. I also handle federal drug cases across New Jersey. Call my office today to learn about your options: 732-400-5161.

Did The Police Violate Your Rights?

Most marijuana, cocaine, heroin and other drug possession arrests in New Jersey stem from traffic stops. But, your car, your bag and your house can only legally be searched in certain circumstances. New Jersey has made it easier for the police to conduct no-warrant searches, but they still must have a reasonable suspicion. If the police stopped your vehicle and/or searched your property without a just cause, the evidence should be thrown out. As your attorney, my first action will be to evaluate all possibilities to get your charges dismissed.

If the police search can be justified, I may challenge whether you were actually in possession of the drugs. "Possession," under the law, is not as black and white as it seems.

Having a drug possession conviction on your record can affect you for years — even decades. You might not be able to get a good job or apartment with a criminal record, and I am ready to fight to protect your future.

I am a trial lawyer. As your attorney for possession charges, my goal is not to push for an easy plea deal. My priority is to tell you the truth about exactly what you are up against, and do everything within my power to get the best possible outcome for you.
