Drug Possession

Drug possession cases range from simple misdemeanor charges to serious felony offenses, each with the potential to disrupt your life. At the Law Office of Jonathan M. Harvey of Columbia, South Carolina, I provide the staunch defense that my clients need as they face these intimidating charges.

Work With Someone Who Will Fight For You

I often represent clients in matters of possession of drugs and controlled substances. These are often lesser charges with reduced penalties and involve individuals who merely had the substance on their person with the intent of using it themselves without sharing. I may be able to get these charges thrown out, and I also assist clients in the expungement of these charges from their records.

I am also prepared to represent clients facing charges of possession with intent to distribute drugs and controlled substances. The penalties for these drug possession cases increase with the nature of the charge and the amount of drugs allegedly possessed. I am prepared to represent clients with charges of possession and possession with intent to distribute. I will fight hard to reach the best possible outcome for you.

The prosecution must be able to prove that you intended to provide the substance to someone else, whether by sale or not. I will fight the matter and show that you were not intending to do so.

I have extensive experience in these types of drug crimes cases. Representation often includes an investigation into the circumstances of the search and seizure used to find drugs on your person. I utilize all details in the case to promote the client's best interest. Often law enforcement makes common errors in these situations, and I know how to bring those details to light.
