Important Considerations

When you meet with your criminal defense attorney to discuss a Desk Appearance Ticket (D.A.T.) or arrest for drug possession, you'll want to discuss several issues in detail. These will help your attorney begin shaping your best defense. Some of the key things to discuss include:

  • Was the stop and search by the police conducted legally? Does any aspect of the search make the alleged evidence inadmissible in a court of law?
  • How much did the alleged drugs weigh? Did they weigh enough for a possible felony charge?
  • Does the prosecution have any evidence of intent to sell the substance in question?
  • Are you a candidate for an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal (ACD)? This means that the charges would be dropped if you are not charged with any other crime in the near future.
  • What are the potential ramifications for your future of a non-criminal conviction or violation in terms of career and immigration status?

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Jeremy answered his phone at 3am to help secure my son's release without bail, within hours. He went straight to the people that mattered and kept my son informed in the cells, giving him hope when no one was communicating with us. He was helpful to the extreme; very kind; very calming for my son; very confident he would be released. The fact he answered the phone, in bed, at 3am, when he was asleep was stunning - especially as no other lawyer did. They all rang back about lunchtime!!! I always felt informed; well advised and that someone was working in my son's best interest. I recommend him wholeheartedly. Sarah

Jeremy’s past experiences in working with the DA and his knowledge of the legal process was instrumental in getting my charge of unlawful surveillance dismissed. I would recommend his services to anyone who is facing serious legal charges. I found him to be professional, honest, intelligent, and I could not have had a better legal outcome than the one I received. Anonymous
