Effective Defense For Drug Charges

Free Consultation at 904-396-3335

If you or someone you know is accused of a controlled substance offense such as possession, sale, delivery or cultivation you do not have to plead guilty and accept the harsh consequences that the state will seek. Our experienced criminal defense attorneys work to obtain the best possible results for clients, including dismissal of charges, pre-trial intervention or plea bargaining to a less serious offense.

Based in Jacksonville, Stone Lockett represents drug crime defendants in state courts throughout northeast Florida. We also offer effective defense for drug trafficking and conspiracy charges in state or federal court.

We represent adults, college students, juveniles and people from all walks of life charged with any and all drug offenses, including:

  • Possession or use of narcotics, stimulants, and hallucinogens, including cocaine, crack, crank, MDMA / ecstasy, heroin, PCP, crystal meth, GHB, anabolic steroids
  • Illegal possession of prescription drugs such as Oxycontin, Hydrocodone, or antidepressants
  • Sale of or intent to distribute small quantities of controlled substances
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Drug DUI (driving under the influence of drugs)

Legitimate Defenses and Alternative Outcomes

From many years in criminal defense, Stone Lockett has developed successful challenges to all types of drug charges. We analyze whether police had the right to search and seizure under the Fourth Amendment, how evidence was collected and processed, and the validity of evidence obtained from informants or undercover officers. We have had success through motions to suppress illegally obtained evidence, and often can get charges reduced or dismissed entirely.

In Florida prosecutors many times seek prison if the offender is charged with the sale or delivery of illegal drugs. At Stone Lockett we counter that with our experience, reputation and perseverance in order to ensure our clients are not subjected to such harsh sentencing. Even when the policies of the state attorneys office seemingly prohibits pretrial intervention we have been able to qualify our clients for such programs in order to avoid criminal convictions. We understand the process and make sure that your special circumstances are known in order to seek a resolution that is favorable. In those circumstances we have been able to demonstrate our clients are worth a second chance and we have successfully negotiated alternative resolutions that result in the complete dismissal of all criminal charges.
