A Drug Arrest Can Change Your Life For The Worse

If you have been arrested on suspicion of a drug crime, you need an experienced advocate on your side now. Massachusetts takes drug-related offenses seriously. In recent years, the criminal justice system in Massachusetts has cracked down and imposed harsher penalties across the spectrum of drug crimes.

Whether you were in the wrong place at the wrong time or simply made a bad decision, your freedom hangs in the balance with drug charges looming. Contact the law office of Steven W. Panagiotes, Attorney at Law, to begin constructing an aggressive defense to safeguard your future.

Steven Panagiotes Knows How To Defend You

Over a career spanning more than 30 years, attorney Steven Panagiotes has constructed thousands of successful defense strategies for almost every drug crime situation imaginable.

In many cases, your drug arrest is not about you. As the criminal justice system strives to dismantle large-scale drug manufacture and distribution systems, it relies on smaller arrests to provide information and leads that can lead to the “bigger fish.” These bait arrests often revolve around flimsy premises and circumstantial evidence.

Armed with an in-depth understanding of how Massachusetts criminal law operates, attorney Panagiotes knows where the holes in the prosecution will be and can work with you to mount a defense strategy to exploit them.

Attorney Panagiotes has put his exceptional legal prowess and ferocious advocacy to work for Worcester County residents accused of an array of drug crimes, including:

  • Possession of illegal drugs for sale or personal use
  • Sale and distribution of illegal drugs, including sale to a minor
  • Drug manufacturing
  • Driving under the influence of drugs

As a standard-bearer for justice in Massachusetts, attorney Panagiotes will defend your rights with the same vigor and tenacity he would his own.

Drug Diversion In Massachusetts

Most drug offenses incur harsh penalties, including jail time, hefty fines and community service. However, those accused of certain offenses, such as simple possession, may be eligible for drug diversion programs. These programs allow eligible candidates to undergo rehabilitation and education to treat substance abuse issues instead of subjecting them to ill-fitting punishments.

In every case, attorney Panagiotes works diligently to obtain the best possible outcome for his clients.
