Defending Against Heroin Drug Charges - Columbus Ohio Attorney
Helping Those Arrested on Heroin Charges
Ohio has recently seen an escalation in abuse, transportation, distribution and possession of heroin. Law enforcement officers are looking for opportunities to make busts and file aggressive charges. The heroin trade in Ohio has expanded in recent years to include Mexican brown tar and powdered heroin, southeast Asian, southwest Asian and South American heroin. It can come as a white or brown powder, or as a tar – a sticky black substance, and is usually injected through a needle, but can also be smoked or snorted. If you or someone you care about has been arrested and/or charged with heroin possession, trafficking, transportation, distribution or dealing, it is a serious matter, and will most likely include a prison sentence.
In Ohio, heroin charges usually include:
- Possession with intent to distribute
- Heroin sales or distribution
- Conspiracy to distribute heroin
- Possession of heroin
- Possession of heroin paraphernalia, including pipes, foil, residue, packets, bags or bundles

Have Your Rights Been Violated?
As a former assistant prosecutor, I understand the difficulty of prosecuting drug trafficking and drug possession charges. Police often conduct searches and seizures in violation of a defendant’s Fourth Amendment constitutional rights. I have significant experience filing motions to suppress and conducting suppression hearings on behalf of clients whose constitutional rights have been violated by unreasonable searches and seizures.
Experience That Makes a Difference
I am an experienced negotiator and trial lawyer. In addition, I have significant experience handling criminal appeals. If you have been charged with a drug trafficking, drug possession or another serious drug charge, I can provide a vigorous defense on your behalf.
I prepare for each case as if it may go to trial. Drug cases are often built on highly questionable evidence due to the statements of informants and people who are drug dealers. I will thoroughly investigate your case, negotiate a plea agreement, protect your rights and argue aggressively on your behalf at trial.
