Cocaine Possession Lawyer

If you are found in possession of 500 mg and over of cocaine in the state of New York, you are liable to be charged with a felony. The consequences for conviction increase based on how much you’ve been caught with. Though many possession cases result in pleas, you may consider going to trial. To help with your chances of success, you need to hire an experienced cocaine possession lawyer.

What Are Your Charges?

The amount of cocaine you’re found in possession of good can affect the charges that are brought against you, as can the circumstances under which you’re arrested. For instance, possessing a small amount of cocaine for personal use in your home will have less dire consequences than possessing a large amount with clear intent to distribute. Other crucial circumstances include if you were selling to a minor or if you were under the influence of cocaine while driving or operating heavy machinery.

Should I Take a Plea?

It can be difficult to fight drug possession charges. If the arresting officer and at least one other witness can testify that you were found in possession of cocaine at the time of arrest, it can be difficult to sway a jury to the possibility of you being innocent. Even if it was planted, you might still have trouble proving it.

You may want to take a plea deal, either no contest or guilty. Don’t do so without going over your case with your attorney. Taking a plea can reduce the stress of facing a lengthier sentence should you go to trial and be convicted, but it can also put a mark on your legal record.

Will I Be Facing Jail Time?

Depending on the circumstances of your case and your legal history, you may or may not face jail time. A minor, misdemeanor amount could result in a fine or some time on probation. If this is your first offense, you could be sentenced to mandatory drug treatment in lieu of jail time. There will be the expectation that you successfully complete treatment and avoid any further run-ins with the law.

Just had my Divorce case settled 2 months ago after having a horrible experience with another firm. I couldn’t be happier with Claire Banks and Elizabeth Garvey with their outstanding professionalism in doing so with Spodek Law Group. Any time I needed questions answered they were always prompt in doing so with all my uncertainties after 30 yrs of marriage.I feel from the bottom of my heart you will NOT be disappointed with either one. Thanks a million.

Alex Zhik contacted me almost immediately when I reached out to Spodek for a consultation and was able to effectively communicate the path forward/consequences of my legal issue. I immediately agreed to hire Alex for his services and did not regret my choice. He was able to cover my case in court (with 1 day notice) and not only was he able to push my case down, he carefully negotiated a dismissal of the charge altogether. I highly recommend Spodek, and more specifically, Alex Zhik for all of your legal issues. Thanks guys!

I don’t know where to start, I can write a novel about this firm, but one thing I will say is that having my best interest was their main priority since the beginning of my case which was back in Winter 2019. Miss Claire Banks, one of the best Attorneys in the firm represented me very well and was very professional, respectful, and truthful. Not once did she leave me in the dark, in fact she presented all options and routes that could possibly be considered for my case and she reinsured me that no matter what I decided to do, her and the team will have my back and that’s exactly what happened. Not only will I be liberated from this case, also, I will enjoy my freedom and continue to be a mother to my first born son and will have no restrictions with accomplishing my goals in life. Now that’s what I call victory!! I thank the Lord, My mother, Claire, and the Spodek team for standing by me and fighting with me. Words can’t describe how grateful I am to have the opportunity to work with this team. I’m very satisfied, very pleased with their performance, their hard work, and their diligence. Thank you team!

I can't recommend Alex Zhik and Spodek Law Firm highly enough for their exceptional legal representation and personal mentorship. From the moment I engaged their services in October 2022, Alex took the time to understand my case thoroughly and provided guidance every step of the way. Alex's dedication to my case went above and beyond my expectations. His expertise, attention to detail, and commitment to achieving the best possible outcome were evident throughout the entire process. He took the time to mentor me, ensuring I understood the legal complexities involved to make informed decisions. Alex is the kind of guy you would want to have a beer with and has made a meaningful impact on me. I also want to acknowledge Todd Spodek, the leader of the firm, who played a crucial role in my case. His leadership and support bolstered the efforts of Alex, and his involvement highlighted the firm's commitment to excellence. Thanks to Alex Zhik and Todd Spodek, I achieved the outcome I desired, and I am incredibly grateful for their professionalism, expertise, and genuine care. If you're in need of legal representation, look no further than this outstanding team.

How to Find the Right Lawyer

A cocaine possession lawyer shouldn’t make any promises that they aren’t sure they can keep. There should be no guarantee of acquittal, as that’s up for the jury to decide. Your lawyer should be well-versed in drug laws and be able to offer an actionable defense that will speak well to your character and your deserving of a second chance. Even if you have to take some form of a plea, such as going to treatment, it’s much better than simply accepting your fate without any kind of scrutiny.

A good cocaine possession will help you to get your charges reduced. They’ll review your charges and weigh them against the evidence. They might not be able to get the entire case thrown out, but they might be able to get some charges reduced from felony to misdemeanor status or dropped entirely.

Expungement

If you do end up with a cocaine possession charge on your record, you may be able to get it expunged. This can take a few years and would require the hiring of another lawyer (or possibly your original lawyer) to argue on your behalf. You would also need to present evidence that you deserve to have your charge expunged, such as continued sobriety and a clean legal record. Expungement is very worthwhile, as it can make it as though you were never convicted in the first place.

Your cocaine possession case can put a lot of pressure on you. An experienced attorney will help to alleviate that pressure. You need to prepare for your case with them extensively and give consideration to any advice they offer. When it comes time for your trial, you should be feeling better than you did when initially charged.
