A Strong Defense For Any Party Connected To Drugs

Because the law regulates certain drugs very closely, there can be serious consequences for having any connection to a drug at all — from making the drug to selling it, and even just carrying it on your person. Compared with some states, Georgia is a strict enforcer of its drug laws and the penalty for many drug-related convictions can often be disproportionate to the offense. In addition to the sentence for the violation itself, a drug conviction can cost you your job and/or make it difficult to get hired at your next job.

That's why it's crucial to work with a skilled criminal defense lawyer when facing drug charges. Attorney James E. Toland, Jr. can help you navigate the state's criminal courts no matter what charge you are facing or what substance you are accused of abusing. Mr. Toland represents private citizens as well as business owners in cases when a store is accused of illegally selling a controlled substance.

Because the market constantly produces new products and the regulations for each product can change over time, it can be difficult for the average person to know with confidence whether some products and specific uses are legal or illegal. Mr. Toland will keep you up to date on current law to help you stay in compliance.

Experience With Charges For A Wide Range Of Substances

Mr. Toland represents people facing charges along the full range of a controlled substance's life span, from production to consumption. This includes manufacturing illegal drugs, drug trafficking, possession with intent to distribute and simple possession and related charges such as operating a vehicle while under the influence of a controlled substance.

Mr. Toland has represented clients charged with producing, selling and possessing a wide range of drugs, including:

  • Marijuana
  • Methamphetamine
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Prescription drugs
  • Underage consumption of alcohol
  • Other alcohol-related charges, such as public drunkenness
