Prescription drugs are powerful. Some opiate pharmaceuticals are highly addictive. Some painkillers, muscle relaxers and other medications are overprescribed by some physicians. Other controlled substances are bought and sold by college students, teens and older adults who can be charged with misdemeanor or felony drug possession.
It is much easier to get in trouble for prescription drugs than most people think. What may start out innocently enough – the giving of a pill to a friend, for example – can lead to criminal charges.
Any drug charges should be taken with the utmost seriousness. If you or a loved one has been charged, our firm can help you protect your rights and reach the best possible outcome under the circumstances.
At the Law Offices of Dominic O. Fariello, P.A., based in Tampa, Florida, we recognize that every prescription drug case needs to be evaluated carefully – and that every drug case should be defended thoroughly.
Our Attorneys Can Defend You If Your Case Involves:
Some prescription drug cases can be resolved favorably by seeking treatment and rehabilitation options, rather than punishment, for a person looking to deal with a drug problem. Other cases should be fought strongly in court.
If you or a loved one may be able to avoid jail time – or avoid a conviction entirely – through a diversion or treatment program, our attorneys can help facilitate that outcome. Submitting to a treatment-based program can result in your criminal charges being dismissed by the prosecutor.
We will evaluate your case to determine if treatment options may work for you.
