Unlawful Possession, Sale And Distribution Of Prescription Drugs

Did your serious injury turn into a prescription drug charge? Sadly, that is how many prescription drug crimes begin. A doctor prescribes a high-powered pain medication and out of nowhere, the patient cannot seem to get enough. When taking the recommended dosage no longer dulls the pain, the suffering person takes more and more, and will do anything to keep the supply strong.

At the law firm of James M. Porfido, Attorney at Law, we have extensive experience defending individuals charged with unlawful possession, sale and distribution of prescription drugs. We understand that many of our clients are not "real criminals." They are unfortunate victims of the addictive components in necessary medications. We will fight aggressively to protect their rights and mitigate the consequences they face.

If you have been charged with prescription drug possession, schedule an initial consultation with Morristown criminal defense lawyer James Porfido.

Aggressive Prescription Drug Charge Defense

Prescription drug crimes are on the rise, and the police are cracking down on people caught possessing pills that are not in their name. In an attempt to thwart illegal prescription drug sales, police can make mistakes — such as conduct illegal searches and seizures — that violate our clients' constitutional rights.

We will initiate an immediate investigation into your case to preserve all necessary evidence to build your case. If we find that your rights were violated in the process, we will take action to suppress the evidence and/or dismiss the charge. We also work hard to minimize penalties through entry into a diversion program if you are a first-time offender.

Beyond defending your criminal charge, we want to get you the help you need to overcome your addiction to OxyContin, Vicodin, Xanax or another commonly abused prescription drug. We will recommend counselors and drug addiction programs that can help resolve the root cause of your situation. Taking such action can get you the real help you need, and may even keep you out of jail or prison.
