Many people these days are struggling with substance abuse, particularly addiction to prescription drugs and heroin. People from all walks of life are being arrested and charged with drug crimes.
If you find yourself charged with a drug offense in Wisconsin, you may be wondering what your next steps should be.
The answer is to get a lawyer - the best you can find.
At Kim & LaVoy, we believe a good criminal defense attorney will not only help you manage and resolve your legal case; a good defense lawyer will also help you resolve any underlying addiction issues so that you can avoid future legal problems. You need an experienced legal advocate who cares about your health and well-being, not just your case. You need someone who will not only fight to protect your rights in court, but who will also look out for your overall best interests including getting you into substance abuse counseling if that is the appropriate route to take.
Drug addiction is being prosecuted, not just drug sales.
Abuse of opiates has been on the rise in Wisconsin and throughout the country for years, and unfortunately, the use of heroin, oxycodone, Vicodin, and other opiate-based drugs has reached epidemic levels.
Law enforcement is on high alert and have reinforced their efforts and resources largely because of the increasing number of deaths linked to heroin and prescription drugs. However, police are cracking down not just on drug dealers, but also on users who would never think of harming another person.
