Fighting a marijuana possession charge can in some cases lead to trial or in other cases, plea agreements. In many cases, our marijuana possession lawyers can negotiate “amendments” to have a marijuana possession charge changed to a less severe charge.
Many potential clients seeking legal representation are not aware that our criminal defense attorneys can negotiate “amendments” to marijuana charges. When a marijuana possession charge is amended, many times the ticket will be changed to littering, or other reduced charges.
When a marijuana possession charge cannot be amended or reduced, our criminal defense attorneys can many times, negotiate a favorable plea agreement or proceed to trial. Our marijuana possession attorneys have also successfully negotiated “straight fines” in place of jail time.
