Drug Possession Who You Hire Makes a Difference

Drug Possession Lawyer in Seattle, WA

Aggressive Seattle Drug Crime Attorneys

No drug offense is charged as often as drug possession. Unfortunately for those accused of this crime, Washington still operates under "zero tolerance" statute that classifies all drug possession as a felony. That means that—except in some instances involving marijuana—anyone caught with any type or controlled substance, in any quantity, becomes exposed to serious penalties.

If you have been charged with drug possession, then experienced and aggressive representation is necessary. At Guadagno Law, PLLC, our Seattle drug crime lawyers is led by former prosecutors who are well-versed in how drug cases are processed in our overburdened justice system. They have the knowledge and resources to slow that process down, make our clients' voices heard, and ensure that they are given proper consideration both in and outside of court.

Fight for the reduction or acquittal you deserve. Call our Seattle drug possession lawyers at (206) 569-8995 today.

Penalties for Drug Possession in Washington

Wa. Rev. Code Ann. § 69.50.4013 defines possession of a controlled dangers substance as class C felony. While Washington law does classify different drugs into different "schedules" (or categories), the possible penalties for any kind of drug possession apply to anyone charged with the crime.

Maximum penalties for drug possession can include:

  • Fines up to $10,000
  • Five years in prison

Note that these are maximum penalties allowable under the law and that reductions can be possible if properly petitioned for by counsel. Additionally, you may be eligible for probation, diversion programs, or Drug Offender Sentencing Alternative (DOSA) if you are struggling with addiction or a medical issue. Whatever your circumstances are, our firm is ready to make resolving this matter for you as swiftly and favorably as possible our absolute priority.
