Shawn Overbey

You Deserve a Hard-Hitting Defense

Whether your charge involves drug distribution, drug possession, or carrying a firearm while in possession of drugs, you need a strong legal advocate who can stand up for your rights and fight to protect your future and freedom. Based on the existence of drug paraphernalia such as baggies or scales, the amount of drugs present, or the quantity of money found, your charges can escalate in severity.

We will carefully examine the police report and interview witnesses to get a clear picture of what actually happened. In some situations, the police did not follow proper procedures. In fact, you may be the victim of an illegal search and seizure. It is our job to uncover this type of information, which will ultimately work to your advantage in court.
