Whether you're facing felony or misdemeanor drug charges, you should understand that being convicted may have serious ramifications for your life. Especially if you have not been charged before, you may find that your life can change in an instant over drug charges. Your drug charge case should only be handled by an experienced professional.

People who are going through their first drug charge (particularly when it comes to possession of paraphernalia or marijuana possession) make a common mistake: they will plead guilty just to get the matter over with. Under Ohio law, this can lead to a mandatory driver's license suspension. Many individuals heading to court for their first drug charge are unaware of this consequence, only to learn too late. Additionally, a drug related charge will show up on your traffic record. A drug charge where you simply plead guilty without consulting an attorney can have life-long ramifications.
