Our Step by Step Process for Investigating the Case
We at Johnson & Nicholson will study the evidence in your case in detail, including the methods that were used to investigate you and the grounds for your arrest.
In a crime such as possession, it is often possible to prove that the police did not have any probable cause to search the suspect’s clothes, vehicle or home, and this fact often makes it possible to have the charges dropped.
There may also be an opportunity to negotiate with the prosecutor to have the charges reduced if there is insufficient evidence to secure a conviction.
It is best to contact Johnson & Nicholson attorneys as early as possible to allow enough time to develop an effective defense.

Green card holders are typically deported for drug crime convictions, and you may also be barred from regaining entry to this country, or be deemed ineligible to apply for an immigration visa or a non-immigrant visa.
