Prescription Drug Offenses
To combat the rise of prescription drug abuse in Tennessee, police officers, prosecutors and judges take a hard line when enforcing state drug laws. The widespread nature of this issue affects people in all classes and professions. From pharmacists to students to addicts, both white and blue collar workers can find themselves the subject of an intense criminal investigation designed to erase illicit drug supplies.

Protecting Your Welfare By Examining All Options
Fines and imprisonment aren’t the only penalties that you may receive when you are convicted of a prescription drug crime. If you are a pharmacist or doctor, you license could be revoked. If you are a student, you could lose your access to federal student loans.
I understand the gravity of these charges. I bring my legal insight to bear when I defend against the following charges:
- Doctor shopping
- Prescription fraud, related to selling prescription pads and prescription forgery
- Theft of prescriptions
- Illegal possession of prescription drugs
- Sale of prescription drugs
Was the evidence seized illegally? Is this your first-time offense? Are there factors that may affect sentencing guidelines? I ask these questions and others when I develop your legal strategy. I am able to secure favorable outcomes at the end of a trial because I know how the system works. I will leave no available option unexplored.
If your livelihood is at risk, you should accept nothing less from your lawyer.
