Possession With Intent to Distribute

A conviction for possession of drugs carries serious penalties. Even with a simple possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, you could face up to 18 months in prison and up to $15,000 in fines. You could also be placed in drug rehabilitation and lose your driver's license.

Whether you were arrested for possession of marijuana, prescription medication or narcotics, you need the assistance of an experienced lawyer. At Markowitz O'Donnell, LLP, in Lawrenceville, our attorneys have more than 20 years of experience defending clients throughout New Jersey who have been charged with all types of drug crimes and related offenses.
