Fighting Drug Charges In Tennessee

Controlled substances come in a wide array, from liquids and powders to pills to plants. However, they all have one thing in common: the potential to result in criminal convictions that turn your life upside down.

If you have been accused of any drug-related offense in Memphis or elsewhere in Tennessee, turn to me, attorney Lauren Pasley. With almost 20 years of experience in complex state and federal cases, I know what it takes to defend your rights to the utmost. Let me provide the aggressive advocacy you require to fight charges such as:

  • Possession of a controlled substance such as marijuana, cocaine or heroin
  • Drug sales or distribution
  • Drug trafficking
  • Manufacturing methamphetamine

Prescription Medications Can Also Lead To Serious Charges

Even prescription medications can be illegal in certain situations. If you share a few hydrocodone pills with a friend, for instance, you could be charged with drug distribution. Likewise, it is illegal to forge a doctor's prescription for Fentanyl, go "doctor shopping" to increase your supply of Percocet or otherwise gain access to such substances through deception.

The Penalties Depend On A Variety Of Factors

The exact penalties that you will be facing depend on a wide array of factors. These include the amount of the drug, the particular type of drug, whether or not you carried a weapon and whether or not the offense was committed within 1,000 feet of a school, day care center, library or park.

In the most severe cases, the consequences of a conviction can be up to $100,000 in fines and up to 60 years in prison. This means you can't afford not to get a skilled attorney on your side.
