Good People Do Get Arrested

Good People Do Get Arrested

When people accused of a drug crime call or visit the Law Firm of Scott T. Moorey, they are scared. Most have never been accused of a crime before. They may be dealing with addiction issues. They may be suffering from chronic pain, but their doctor will no longer prescribe medication. They may be medical professionals who have written illegal prescriptions to help a friend.

These people do not need punishment, they need help. They do not need jail, they need a second chance. Our Fort Myers drug crimes defense lawyer has the knowledge and experience to help them fight for their lives.

If you have been arrested for a prescription drug crime, such as illegal possession of oxycodone or OxyContin, our lawyer at the Law Firm of Scott T. Moorey will comb over all aspects of the arrest record and ask questions such as:

  • Were appropriate police procedures followed?
  • What were the extenuating circumstances that the police are not including in their report?
  • If there are issues of drug weight that are bumping your charge up to drug trafficking and manufacturing, how can we seek to minimize the weight issue?
  • Is this a “victimless” crime and, if so, how can we use this information to leverage a better outcome for you?
  • Is the real issue a matter of obtaining proper substance abuse treatment or counseling?
  • Was the search and seizure based on probable cause?
  • Were you coerced into confessing guilt?
  • Did you simply not know that having one pill without the pill bottle is a crime?

You can rest assured that our Fort Myers drug possession defense lawyer will leave no stone unturned in the effort to obtain a case dismissal. Our goal is to pursue justice and aggressively defend you against serious charges in the face of the criminal justice system.
