I Have The Experience To Challenge Drug Charges

In Indiana, drug crimes carry stiff penalties. Certain drug crimes can lead to fines, jail time and other harsh consequences. Because the stakes are so high, it is important to work with a lawyer who is not afraid to aggressively pursue a resolution in your best interests. At Maryan Law, LLC, this is the experience you will get.

I am attorney Dorie A. Maryan, and I provide aggressive legal advocacy for people throughout the Indianapolis area. I have the skills and experience to build a vigorous defense against all types of drug crimes, including:

  • Drug distribution
  • Drug possession
  • Drug trafficking
  • Drug manufacture
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Other drug charges

At my law firm, communication is key. You will always know what is going on in your case, and I will give you the information you need to feel empowered to make the right decisions.

The Amount Of Drugs Matters

If drugs are found on your property or your person, the amount matters. The amount will determine whether you are charged with a misdemeanor or a felony. Certain amounts may also give police reason to believe you had intent to sell the drugs, which can lead to additional charges. However, the amount of drugs found in your possession does not necessarily dictate my ability to build a strong defense for you.

Drug Crimes Defense: Challenging Search And Seizures

One of the most important aspects of a drug case is how the drugs were found. Often, they are found when police search a person's property, such as a vehicle or home. When this is the case, it is very important to carefully review the search and seizure that took place.

As your attorney, I will do just that. I will verify that police had a proper search warrant and executed it correctly. If police violated your constitutional rights by unlawfully searching your property, the evidence they found during that search — including the drugs — could be deemed inadmissible in court.

If the search was conducted lawfully, you are not out of options. Some people are coerced into confessing to a crime they did not commit, and others are unaware drugs are in their home or vehicle. I will strive to find a defense that supports your best interests.
