Drug Defense

Pennsylvania Drug Defense Attorney

Have you or someone you love been arrested for drug possession? Depending on the charge and circumstances, there may be a wide range of alternatives available. In order to obtain the best possible result, an experienced drug defense lawyer is essential. At the Law Offices of V. Erik Petersen, I have over fourteen years of experience as a trial lawyer. As an Assistant District Attorney, I prosecuted hundreds of drug cases. As a defense attorney, I represented an individual who was charged with trafficking over 550 kilos of cocaine. At the time, it was Pennsylvania's single largest drug arrest. To discuss your legal options in more detail, contact the Law Offices of V. Erik Petersen for a free consultation.

Drug Defense Cases
I have handled drug cases where there were several kilos of drugs. I have also defended college students who were caught with a single joint in their back pocket. I handle drug cases that involve

    * Drug possession
    * Drug trafficking or Possession with the Intent to Deliver
    * Marijuana
    * Cocaine
    * Heroin
    * Methamphetamine
    * Ecstasy
    * Fraudulent prescriptions, including Oxycontin, Percocet, and Xanax

Search and Seizure
The search is the lynchpin in every drug defense case. Whether the police searched your car, your home, or your person, they must do so in accordance with constitutional law. I work hard to stay on the cutting edge of search and seizure law. If the arrest involves a recorded conversation, I make sure that the police follow the Pennsylvania Wiretap Law. I make sure that the authorities do not overstep their bounds. I zealously protect your rights.
