Fraudulent Prescriptions Defense Attorney

Prescription drug abuse in Florida is on the rise. Addiction of prescription pain killers and sleep aids can occur in persons of any age or socioeconomic status. As a result, doctors and pharmacists are required to report sales of addictive prescription drugs and law enforcement is cracking down harder than ever on drug crimes.

I can represent you if you have been charged with drug trafficking any prescription medication or narcotic, including:

  • OxyContin
  • Oxycodone
  • Roxicodone (Roxy)
  • Xanax
  • Methadone
  • Valium
  • Ativan

Prescriptions pills can be obtained in a number of ways, including a legitimate prescription, fraudulent prescription, "doctor shopping" or "pill mills." The way that you obtained the drugs as well as the amount that you possessed and sold will have an impact on the penalties you receive if you are convicted.

By hiring me early in your case, I may be able to work with the prosecutor to stop formal charges from being filed.
