Tenaciously Protecting Your Freedom and Future – Arizona Drug Possession Attorney

When you are charged with drug possession in Arizona, you may face very serious life-altering consequences that may impact your job, family, freedom and reputation.  The severity of the consequences you face will depend on the type of narcotic or drug, the quantity of the drug and your prior record.  Many times Maricopa County prosecutors will overcharge criminal drug possession cases to pressure you into entering a guilty plea on unfavorable terms.  Even if you are only charged with simple possession, it is important that you decline to speak to the police or prosecutor and exercise your right to remain silent and have an attorney present during any questioning.

 At the Sullivan Law Office, we are committed to providing zealous defense to drug possession charges based on thorough investigation, comprehensive and current knowledge of the law, creative criminal defense strategies and tenacious courtroom advocacy.  Dianne Sullivan brings an insider’s knowledge of law enforcement tactics and prosecutor strategies that come from her successful tenure as a Maricopa County prosecutor.  Dianne Sullivan will explore a wide variety of possible defenses to help protect you from the devastating consequences of a drug possession conviction including the following:

  • Lack of evidence to prove the offense beyond a reasonable doubt
  • Drugs were not yours or in your possession
  • Failure of police to follow appropriate procedures
  • Fourth Amendment challenges based on unlawful search and seizures
  • Suppression of incriminating statements because they are not voluntary or obtained in violation of Miranda
  • Impeaching the credibility of confidential informants

If you are charged with possession of a sufficient quantity of an illegal drug, you may be charged with more serious penalties for possession with intent or possession for sale.  Arizona has some of the toughest drug laws in the nation.  If you are charged with drug possession in Phoenix, Tempe, Scottsday or anywhere in Arizona, Ms. Sullivan will carefully evaluate the facts, gather appropriate evidence, file effective motions and present persuasive criminal defenses to seek a dismissal of your charges or substantial reduction in charges.  Sometimes Ms. Sullivan can avoid formal charges even being filed against you.  Ms. Sullivan will zealously pursue dismissal or acquittal but where this is unrealistic she will seek diversion which may entail participation in a drug rehabilitation program.  Successful completion of this type of diversion program prevents you from having a permanent criminal record.
