Harrison & Hart, LLC handles both state and federal charges, but we focus on those that are the most complex. Our drug attorneys are dedicated to the difficult cases that are too complex for many others to take on.
Types of cases involving controlled substances that we handle:
Why Choose Us
When you’re facing federal drug charges, you need a lawyer who is familiar with the federal legal process. A private attorney has the time and resources to devote to your case. Don’t rely on advice from someone who doesn’t specialize in federal courts. Instead, work with Harrison & Hart, LLC to tackle the allegations against you.
Federal authorities, such as the FBI and DEA, will likely have conducted a significant investigation before you are ever arrested for federal drug charges. The prosecutor will likely have a significant amount of evidence pointing to you. It’s important to begin working with a drug defense attorney quickly if you think you’re being investigated or if you get arrested.
We will first help you get out of federal jail on bond and then appear on your behalf at hearings and conferences. We know you will want as few interferences with your life as possible, so we will handle the stressful parts and try to help you make the best decisions possible.
We will engage in the discovery process, which includes requesting information from the prosecutor about the evidence they have against you. However, we will also conduct an independent investigation to find our own information. We will review how the police arrested you, whether the search and seizure was valid, and if any of your rights were violated.
Plea bargaining will be a large part of the work our drug lawyers will do for you. If we can’t come to a beneficial agreement, we will try to get it dismissed with pre-trial motions or take it to trial, if necessary.

State & Local Cases

You may have options other than prison. You might be eligible for alternative sentencing options like community service, house arrest, drug abuse and treatment programs, and addiction management. We will negotiate with the prosecutor and work to achieve your goals for the outcome of the case.
When you hire us, we will develop a strategic defense plan to attack your case. There are common defenses that we will explore if they fit the facts.
