Defending Against Drug Charge

In Providence and Throughout Rhode Island and Southern Massachusetts

While marijuana is being decriminalized in much of the country, recreational drug use is still prosecuted intently in Providence and the surrounding areas. Possession charges for marijuana, cocaine, Ecstasy and Molly result in severe penalties, even for first-time offenders.

If you have been arrested and accused of drug possession or distribution, our defense lawyers will fight aggressively to protect your rights and your freedom. At Mesolella & Associates LLC, we believe that everyone who is accused of a crime deserves a strong criminal defense. Our partner attorneys will handle your case, working with you personally, to pursue the best possible outcome for you.

Aggressive Legal Representation

As partners in the law firm, we work together to devise aggressive strategies to protect the rights and freedoms of our clients. We don't pass our work off to legal associates or paralegals — we will work with you directly from day one.

Depending on the specifics of your case, there may be different ways to obtain a favorable result. The first step we take in defending drug possession cases is to ensure police did not violate our clients' rights. When evidence or a statement proves to be illegally obtained, we aim to have that evidence suppressed.

Defense strategies in drug cases include seeking a dismissal, dismissal after community service, negotiating favorable plea arrangements, deferred sentencing and fighting for an acquittal at trial. The best option depends on the specific details of your case.
