The police found me with marijuana in my pocket, why should I hire a lawyer?
The obvious answer is, those are not your pants. The reality is there may be other options than pleading guilty in court. Some jurisdictions no longer prosecute marijuana cases, others offer dismissals in exchange for community service. You may be eligible for drug court, resource court, first offender, or conditional discharge. These are all programs that can keep this off your record. A local knowledgeable attorney can help you obtain the best result possible. You’ll want to avoid a conviction in court, which stays on your record for life.
