Respected Attorneys To Protect Your Rights

Drug Charges Can Impact Your Future Permanently

Last updated on February 2, 2023

Although the public attitude toward drug activity is growing more lenient, New Mexico’s criminal justice system still takes drug crimes very seriously. An arrest, charge or conviction for a drug crime can permanently damage your future. It can limit your options for housing, education and jobs.

It is crucial to take swift action if you face allegations of drug activity. Clark, Jones & Ruyle, LLC, based in Santa Fe, can help you. Our defense lawyers have more than 60 years of combined experience defending clients against charges such as:

  • Possession
  • Possession with intent to distribute or sell
  • Drug manufacturing
  • Trafficking
  • Possession of paraphernalia

We can represent you no matter which controlled substances are allegedly involved in your case: Methamphetamines, cocaine, fentanyl, prescription opioids or any other drug.

How Can You Defend Me Against Drug Charges?

You may feel powerless against a justice system that seems determined to convict you, even if you are not guilty. Fortunately, there are several defenses that your attorney can use in your favor, including:

  • Unlawful search and seizure
  • Entrapment
  • Insufficient evidence
  • Failure to inform you of your Miranda rights
  • Racial profiling

No matter how overwhelming the state’s evidence against you may seem, Clark, Jones & Ruyle, LLC, can provide an aggressive, strategic defense for criminal charges.

Avoid The Mandatory Minimum Sentences Of Federal Charges

Felony drug convictions often have mandatory minimum sentences that are disproportionately harsh. You could face prison time, even for a relatively light charge. Clark, Jones & Ruyle, LLC, has successfully had many clients’ felony charges dismissed or reduced. We can defend you in federal court or appellate court if necessary, always seeking the best outcome available to you.
