In Phoenix, a few drug-related acts are illegal:
Examples of dangerous drugs include methamphetamine, ecstasy, LSD, PCP, Xanax, Valium, or anabolic steroids. If you get caught with these drugs, you could face criminal charges or a conviction. However, Gurion Legal can help you avoid a conviction by fighting your charges.
After getting a drug possession charge, you could face strict penalties if convicted. Depending on the severity of your charge, you could face decades in prison.

On top of jail time, if you get convicted of drug possession, you could expect to pay large fines.
These sentences can be even longer if you have prior felony convictions.
Serving a long prison sentence can change your life drastically. Let our legal team help you avoid jail or go for less time. With our representation, you can have hope that you won’t have to deal with a criminal conviction or jail time.
The Phoenix drug possession attorneys at Gurion Legal can develop a strong defense strategy on your behalf. Just because you face a drug possession charge doesn’t mean you will get convicted. Some of the defenses we can use when we represent you include:
For the police to put drugs they find in your vehicle, home, or on your body into evidence, they must have conducted the search to find those drugs legally. The Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution gives each person the right to security. Therefore, law enforcement officers cannot conduct unreasonable searches and seizures.
To legally search a vehicle, house, or person, the law enforcement officer must have probable cause or a search warrant. If a police officer unlawfully searches a vehicle and finds illegal drugs, our legal team could work to get that evidence thrown out. We can gather evidence to prove the police officer didn’t have probable cause to search your car and, therefore, cannot admit the evidence.
Without the evidence of illegal drugs, we can work to get your charges dropped.
If you get charged with drug possession with the intent to sell, you could face severe penalties. Our team can come up with a strong defense to protect you against a conviction for these charges.
When you get charged with drug possession with the intent to sell, we could claim:
If the prosecution cannot prove you had the intent to sell the drugs found on you, you could avoid a harsher charge. Our team can work to get you a lesser charge, such as drug possession, or to get your charges dropped completely.
In Phoenix, you could face harsher penalties if you have higher quantities of drugs on you at the time of an arrest. However, if you get the maximum charge because of the amount of drugs you have on you, we can work to get the charges lowered.
We can challenge the amount of drugs to reduce your charges or try to get your case dismissed. Depending on the circumstances, we could use this as a potential defense.
During a criminal trial, the prosecution must prove the drugs they found belonged to you. If you live in a house with roommates and the police conduct a search and find drugs inside the house, you could get charged with drug possession. Although, those drugs might belong to one of your roommates, not you.
Before the trial, we can work to convince the prosecution that they cannot prove you owned the drugs. If they want to continue towards a trial, we can put reasonable doubt in the jurors’ minds that the drugs belonged to you. The jurors could have more difficulty making a guilty verdict if the prosecution cannot prove the drugs found were yours.
Another strong defense strategy we could use includes proving you didn’t know you had possession of the drugs. For example, if you get pulled over by law enforcement, and they search the vehicle you drive and find drugs, they could charge you with drug possession.
Sometimes, you might not own the vehicle you got pulled over in. If this happens, we could argue that you didn’t know the vehicle contained drugs. However, the law states you must knowingly possess drugs. Our team can fight to show the prosecution doesn’t have proof beyond a reasonable doubt that you knew about the drugs.
Someone could plant evidence on you for various reasons.
Common reasons people plant evidence include:
If the police find illegal drugs on you or in your home or car, they could charge you with drug possession. We can collect evidence to prove that another person planted the drugs on you. Again, if the prosecution cannot prove you knew you had the drugs on you, you could get your charges dismissed or lowered.
If a conviction could come down to witness testimony, our legal team could put doubt in the minds of jurors about the reliability of the witness. If they don’t trust the witness, that could put doubt in their minds. We can do this by utilizing questioning tactics and other strategies.
If your case goes to trial, we will want to get the jury to agree that you didn’t commit the crime. If the prosecution doesn’t have a lot of evidence against you, our strategy could include poking holes in their case. To get a conviction, the jury must believe you committed the crime.
If we put enough doubt in their minds that you didn’t commit the crime, the jury will have no choice but to give a not guilty verdict. Our team has skilled litigators who can use their knowledge to prove the prosecution’s case doesn’t have the strength to warrant a conviction.
While you might think you can serve jail time and move on with your life after a conviction, you could face further consequences. Employers and landlords typically conduct background checks on potential employees or tenants. If they see a criminal conviction on your record, they could deny you housing or employment. These issues could significantly affect your financial situation and livelihood in the future.
On top of these issues, you could also struggle to get a personal loan or keep custody of your children. Because of the vast number of consequences you could face with a conviction, you should do everything you can to avoid one. Our drug possession attorneys in Phoenix can work tirelessly on your case to avoid a conviction and the long-term consequences that you could face.

Mr. Gurion did an amazing job representing me. He got the best possible outcome for my case.
Omer is a fantastic attorney. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an amazing attorney.
I endorse the 5 stars they receive – they earn them. They’ve been hardworking and knowledgeable, and I should know, I’ve hired them twice! Dealing with legal matters is really difficult, confusing, and stressful, and they ease that burden when you want to count on and trust somebody. I fired my first defense attorney, who wasn’t working much at all to help me, and luckily found Omer and his colleagues. My outcomes were both times much better than I ever expected. If you’re reading reviews looking for legal help, call them.
