Can I be charged with criminal possession of my prescription drugs?

There are several prescribed drugs that are illegal to possess without a valid prescription.  However, a valid prescription for a narcotic is a complete defense to the crime of drug possession.  However, sometimes people get arrested for possession merely because the pills were loose in their pocket, purse or car.  To avoid any issues with an over zealous police officer, keep your medications secure in the original pill bottle.  Also make sure that the pills in the bottle match the prescription on the label.

Outstanding service from lawyer Grant Ian Schwarz.

Lawyer Grant Ian Schwarz provides outstanding service. I recently hired him for my case earlier this year and on the day of the trial it got dismissed with ease. Not only did that case get dismissed but my first case three years ago got dismissed as well with Grant by my side. Mr.Schwarz is a reliable lawyer who I would recommend to anybody having any sort of legal issues. Grant is an extremely caring lawyer who will answer all questions that you have and will respond to any e-mails, texts, or phone calls that you send his direction. I cannot forget to mention his confidence in the courtroom is amazing and it truly shows his greatness. Grant Ian Schwarz is the right lawyer for you. Thank you for everything Grant.
