Imagine the terror these words would strike if you are caught with any kind of illegal drug in your possession. Whether you are holding a small amount of marijuana or concealing a packet of cocaine, you are in big trouble.

The Law Office of James Medows can provide the skill and expertise to assist you in the complex territory of drug charges and to ensure that your rights have not been violated.
Historically, New York has had the toughest drug laws in the country, and while many of those have abated, charges are still quite serious, ranging from misdemeanors to felonies.
If you are charged with drug possession, you can face extensive jail time as well as the possibility of having your home, car, assets, money, and other possessions seized. Let James Medows help to prevent any of that from happening.
The rules regarding substance offenses are complex, such as the kind of drug.
Illegal possession can include marijuana, heroin, ecstasy, cocaine, steroids, methamphetamine, prescription drugs like Vicodin and Oxycontin, hallucinogens, ketamine—the list goes on.
James knows the dangers and consequences each involves.
Then there is the question of intent.
