Drug Cases

Florida Drug Crimes Criminal Defense AttorneyGainesville Drug Crimes Lawyer

In Florida, a drug crime can result in a felony or a misdemeanor charge. A drug charge in the state of Florida is a very serious offense. At the Law Offices of Whittel & Melton we handle all types of drug crimes charges, including possession, trafficking, distribution, cultivation and manufacturing. We have the expertise needed to fight your drug crimes charge. By hiring an experienced criminal defense lawyer, we can review your case and let you know if you may qualify under Florida law for drug diversion or “drug court”. Drug diversion programs allow someone accused of a minor drug offense to be considered for what is called "alternative disposition" in their case. If approved for a drug program you can receive treatment instead of jail time.

If you have been accused of a drug charge in Florida, then contact Gainesville drug crimes attorney Robert G. Whittel immediately. He understands the stress and strain that a drug crimes charge can cause to you or your family, and he has the knowledge and expertise necessary to defend your case. Criminal defense lawyer Robert G. Whittel has years of legal experience and is committed to defending your rights and protecting your future.
