Facing Drug Charges? Get A Defense Attorney

The Georgia criminal justice system is powerful and can seem frightening. If you currently face a drug investigation or have been charged with a drug crime, you should know that you are not alone. At the Law Office of John W. Howe, we can act as your advocate and protect your rights.

Our lead attorney, John W. Howe, has over 20 years of experience as a criminal defense attorney. He has obtained favorable plea deals and won not-guilty verdicts in hundreds of cases involving:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Methamphetamines
  • Prescription opioids
  • Other prescription drugs

Throughout your case, we will explain the legal system, discuss your options and work aggressively for the best results available. With our law firm on your side, you will have the ally that you need.

Talk To A Lawyer Before You Talk To Police

Police officers may try to interview you before you have the chance to speak to a criminal defense attorney. If this happens, do not speak with them. Instead, tell them that you would like to have a lawyer present.

Why? Because the police know how to get the answers they want to hear. Many people, even those who have done nothing wrong, accidentally incriminate themselves when speaking to law enforcement officers. Before speaking to the police, speak to a defense attorney.

We Will Fight For Alternative Sentencing

If this is your first drug-related offense, you may have the chance to avoid prosecution. The public understanding of drug abuse has changed rapidly, and the justice system is beginning to understand that addiction is a serious illness. Our attorney will work to get you alternative sentencing such as a pre-trial diversion program or conditional discharge to help you avoid the stigma of a criminal offense on your record.
