Assertive Defense Against All Drug Charges

State and federal authorities aggressively prosecute drug offenses in Mississippi. The penalties are harsh and a drug offense on your record can have negative consequences for years.

Often, in their zeal to crack down on drugs being manufactured and sold in the state, authorities overstep their legal authority. Illegal searches and seizures and other law enforcement infractions are not uncommon.

If you have been arrested for a drug crime in northern Mississippi, my firm, M. Darin Vance, Attorney at Law, in Hernando, is ready to provide smart legal representation aimed at minimizing the impact of whatever charges you face. I represent clients in the full spectrum of drug cases, including:

  • Possession of marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamines or other controlled substances
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Drug sales or trafficking
  • Distribution of controlled substances
  • Manufacturing or cultivating controlled substances
  • Illegal sales of prescription drugs

A Record Of Success In Drug Cases

I know from experience — and from past successes — that the facts in drug arrests are not always what they seem. For example, a past client was a passenger in a car that was stopped by police and charged with possession with intent to sell when drugs were recovered from the vehicle. There was a question of whose drugs they were, however, so we went to trial and won a not guilty verdict.

I carefully review the facts of every case and conduct a separate investigation if necessary. My clients appreciate the personal attention I provide as well as my candid approach. I don’t overpromise, but I do make every effort to produce the best possible outcome.

In some cases, the better solution is to negotiate a reduced penalty and avoid a jail sentence. I handles cases throughout DeSoto County and all of northern Mississippi, so I am familiar with the prosecutors, judges and other key parties who will play a role in your case.
