HAVE YOU BEEN CHARGED WITH A DRUG OFFENSE?

If you have been charged with drug offense, no matter how big or small, it is imperative that you seek out the services of an aggressive and experienced drug defense lawyer. Mr. Maloumian offers representation for individuals charged with all drug offenses that involve:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Cocaine Base
  • Heroin
  • Methamphetamine
  • Prescription Narcotics

Drug offenses vary immensely in severity depending upon the amount of drugs involved and the action of the party that was arrested.

Simple possession of a controlled substance or knowing and intentional possession (K&I) is a misdemeanor offense. It has the potential to carry both a probation or jail sentence depending upon the individual circumstances. A conviction may also affect your driving privileges. This type of drug charge applies most commonly to individuals being arrested while in possession of a small amount of drugs for personal use. Regardless of the drug or the amount, it is imperative to seek out services of the skilled drug defense attorney, such as Mr. Maloumian, to ensure that your rights are protected. Even if you were offered a diversionary program, such as the small amount of marijuana program in Philadelphia known as SAM, it may be in your best interest to consult with Mr. Maloumian to ensure that you understand the program and the rights you are giving up.

Possession with intent to deliver (PWID) is a far more serious charge and is a felony. This charge is heavily prosecuted, and there is significant potential for a sentence involving incarceration should you be convicted. This type of charge is usually seen in the scenario where an individual is observed making drug sales and then is arrested and found to be in possession of similar drugs. An individual can also be charged with possession with intent to deliver without making any sales. If you are stopped on the street or in a vehicle or arrested inside of a house and you have a quantity of drugs that would suggest that it is too large for personal use, you could be charged with possession with intent to deliver. Mr. Maloumian is well-versed in mounting an aggressive defense for his clients charged with possession with intent to deliver. What was the nature of the surveillance? What could the police see? Was there a warrant for the house or car that was searched? What connection does the individual arrested have to the narcotics? These are just some of the significant areas of any drug case that Mr. Maloumian consistently and successfully explores when defending his clients charged with possession with intent to deliver. With over 20 combined years as a prosecutor and defense attorney litigating drug cases, Mr. Maloumian's extremely effective litigation skills and experience prove time and time again to be a winning formula for his clients.

Drug trafficking is an extremely serious drug charge, which also carries the potential for lengthy periods of incarceration upon conviction. These cases tend to involve substantial pre-arrest investigation by law enforcement before an arrest is made where an individual is caught moving a large quantity of drugs. Penalties for this offense can also be escalated if there are weapons recovered in conjunction with the drugs once an arrest is made. Mr. Maloumian thoroughly evaluates the lawfulness of pre-arrest investigation. Mr. Maloumian expends every effort and will explore every resolution in obtaining the best outcome for you, should you be arrested for drug trafficking.

IF YOU ARE ARRESTED FOR A DRUG OFFENSE, NO MATTER WHAT THE AMOUNT OR CIRCUMSTANCE, MR. MALOUMIAN IS READY AND PREPARED TO FIGHT FOR YOU!
