Defending Your Rights and Freedom

We will examine all aspects of your case, looking for a way to obtain positive results for you. Because many drug arrests come about as the result of traffic stops, we will pay particular attention to how the police came to arrest you. Fourth Amendment defenses based on unreasonable search and seizure methods used by the police could lead to a dismissal of the charge. Harrison & Medlin, P.C. will aggressively represent you at all stages of the legal process.

Prescription Drug Possession Charges

In recent years, the Augusta area has seen a sharp increase in the number of people charged with illegal possession of prescription painkillers. Many of those charged are fine people who have become addicted to these drugs. At Harrison & Medlin, P.C., our Augusta and Martinez drug possession defense attorneys have represented many clients who have chemical dependency problems. For many people in this situation, the good news is that diversion programs, such as drug and accountability courts are available that can enable the accused to avoid jail and a criminal record and get the treatment services needed to deal with the underlying problem. When you come to our offices to discuss your case, an attorney can explain your options.
