Gainesville Lawyers Defending Against Drug Possession Charges

A conviction for possession of even a small amount of drugs can have lifelong consequences. A criminal record can make it difficult to find employment, secure housing or to qualify for certain loans. That is why it is important to protect your rights through strong criminal defense representation.

At the law firm of Avera & Smith, our Gainesville attorneys have been serving the needs of people throughout Florida for more than 60 years. We are prepared to put our extensive experience of defending against drug possession charges to work for you. We are committed to protecting your rights and your future.

Skilled Defense in All Drug Possession Cases

Our attorneys understand how to build a strong defense against all drug crimes, including possession charges involving:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Meth
  • Heroin
  • Ecstasy
  • OxyContin and other prescription drugs


Possession charges do not even have to involve controlled substances themselves. Possession of drug paraphernalia can also result in criminal possession charges. When we take your case, we will challenge the circumstances that led to your arrest in order to determine whether your constitutional rights were violated. If we are unable to get your charges dismissed, we may be able to work with the prosecution on an alternative form of sentencing, such as drug rehabilitation. In every case, you can count on us to ensure that your rights remain protected.
