Drug Trafficking

Drug Trafficking

North Carolina police and other law enforcement officials aggressively prosecute drug trafficking crimes throughout the state. If you have been arrested on suspicion of drug trafficking, you need an equally aggressive defense attorney.

The experienced legal team at Gottholm, Ralston & Benton, PLLC, in Statesville, North Carolina, understands what it takes to protect your rights and build a strong case in your defense. Our lawyers have more than 30 years of combined experience, including attorney Martin J. Gottholm's work experience as an assistant district attorney and a district court judge.

Illegal Search and Seizure in Mooresville

We review every aspect of your arrest to determine if your constitutional rights have been violated. In instances where authorities confiscated drugs after an illegal stop or during an illegal search and seizure, it is possible to get the charges dismissed.

This is not uncommon. In their zeal to fight the sale and abuse of illegal drugs, law enforcement officials frequently impede upon individuals' rights. It takes experienced and attentive criminal defense lawyers to spot these infractions and use them in your defense.

We also help clients resolve their cases through diversionary programs, which allow individuals to agree to reduced charges and avoid jail time by successfully completing drug rehabilitation programs. It is essential to hire a lawyer who is familiar with these programs and who is eligible for them.
