Drug Charges Can Be Fought

In Oklahoma, any criminal charge involving a controlled dangerous substance (CDS) is serious — whether that substance is an illegal drug such as marijuana, cocaine or methamphetamine or a prescription drug such as OxyContin or Vicodin. A conviction could change the course of your life and stay on your record forever.

If you or someone you care about has been charged with a drug crime, there is no time to lose in contacting a proven, aggressive criminal defense firm. At Nichols Law Firm in Norman, we are well-positioned to fight the most serious drug charges. Both Drew Nichols and Rebekah C. Taylor are former Cleveland County assistant district attorneys with in-depth knowledge of the courts and justice system, and attorney Nichols served as a felony drug prosecutor, managing hundreds of drug cases at a time. Now, they translate that experience to create strong defense strategies for people accused of drug crimes.

There Is Hope

We believe in the people we represent. All too often, these are people who made mistakes or fell prey to addiction. Incarceration is simply not the right solution. We believe that people can overcome addiction and the mistakes of their past, given the opportunity. We want to give you the opportunity, because we believe in you. Have hope.

Do not assume that the evidence against you is bulletproof. Recognize that police and prosecutors will highlight the strengths of the evidence, but never the weaknesses. Just because they say the evidence against you is strong does not mean it cannot be challenged. Creating a drug crime defense strategy begins by reviewing the evidence and identifying flaws.

Even if the evidence against you is strong, there are options. Drug court is one of those options. Available in most counties, drug court offers certain nonviolent drug offenders the opportunity to undergo a structured, court-supervised treatment program. This program benefits not only the accused by helping him or her avoid incarceration and overcome a deadly habit, but everyone. According to the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, drug court participants are dramatically less likely to be arrested again than those who are simply locked away.

Unfortunately, drug court is not ordered automatically in drug crime cases, and not everyone is accepted into the program. You want to make certain you have a lawyer on your side who understands when this option is available and knows how to pursue it successfully. When you choose us to handle your case, we will determine the best available actions to demonstrate that you should be given drug court or other manageable consequences.
