First-Time Drug Charges in Florida
Avoiding a Mark on Your Criminal Record
If you are in the face of your first criminal arrest, or even just your
first drug charge, you need to know your rights and how these charges
can have a long-lasting effect on your future. Criminal charges, no matter
what type, can haunt a person for decades. Without the ability to cleanse
or expunge their criminal record, this person will be forced to report
to every potential employer and at every request for a criminal background
that he or she has been convicted of a crime.
Drug crimes, however, can sometimes be much worse than other types of offenses in
the sense that they trigger the belief that the alleged criminal may have
dependency issues on the narcotic or may fall into a habit of substance
abuse. If you do not want this negative stigma to follow you around everywhere
you go, then you need to speak with an attorney right away.
When you first contact the law firm of Parks & Braxton, PA, you know
that you have come to the right law firm for your drug crime charges.
We take these types of offenses very seriously, as we know the lifelong
effect it will have on a person who fails to obtain sound legal representation.
Many people assume that a judge will be lenient on a first-time offender
or a prosecution will drop the case with a warning; this is a sorely mistaken
idea. The prosecution will instead prosecute the case with enhanced penalties
to "teach a lesson" or possibly to ensure that this type of
behavior is not engaged in again. No matter what type of drug charge you
are facing, you will need a defense attorney to protect your rights.
We will inform you of your rights!
At Parks & Braxton, PA, we can help you learn more about the rights
you have under the Fourth and Fifth Amendments to the Constitution and

viable option and defense strategy until we know that we have found the
right one for your unique case.
