How can I defend myself against a drug charge?

Just because you were arrested and accused of a crime does not mean that you will be convicted or punished.

There are times when someone's pain gets so bad that the only relief a doctor can provide involves the prescription of opiate-based medications. The problem is, these drugs are highly addictive.

The blurred line between the juvenile and adult justice systems

The mission of the U.S. judicial system is to faithfully enforce the law and protect its citizens.

Over the passing generations, however, society has called for tougher sentencing, even for the once protected class of youth.
