The "war on drugs" has taken many prisoners in recent decades. All too often, our law firm has seen criminal cases where we believed the punishment did not fit the crime. Excessive mandatory sentences on the federal and state levels, insufficient access to effective treatment for people addicted to narcotics and a tendency to arrest innocent bystanders are just a few of the ongoing problems.
The battle for freedom and justice becomes personal when you are the one charged with a drug crime.
MHH is a valuable resource for people facing criminal matters in South Carolina such as the following:
Federal drug crime charges: If you become aware that a grand jury investigation that might involve you is underway, don't wait for an indictment or a subpoena.
South Carolina drug charges: Whenever possible, our law firm fights to have drug charges handled at the state level rather than in federal court.
Drug possession: Were you charged with possession of illegal substances such as marijuana? Contact an experienced defense lawyer as soon as possible.
Drug trafficking: We provide to international clients as well as Americans who have been charged with drug trafficking crimes.
Drug charge sentencing: Consult with an attorney who has a track record of achieving favorable alternatives on behalf of clients convicted of drug crimes.
We reach out to individuals charged with drug crimes and provides aggressive defense for those who choose to retain our legal services.
Our drug and criminal defense lawyers represent tourists, students, juveniles and adults through all stages of a criminal prosecution: first appearance and bond hearing, investigation (including grand jury investigations), pretrial motions, plea negotiations, trial and sentencing. At every step of the way, we concentrate on protecting you from the risk of prison or other severe punishment while looking out for your long-term interests.
