Worcester Drug Possession Attorney
Massachusetts Drug Crimes Lawyer: Drug Possession
While possessing heroin, cocaine/coke/crack, pills, marijuana/pot or another illegal drug may seem like a victim-less crime, the effects of a conviction could haunt you for your entire life. You may face time in prison, large fines and license loss/revocation. You may also face peripheral consequences not included in the laws, including trouble finding a job or buying/renting a home, or loss of financial aid. If you are not a U.S. citizen, you may be deported. If you are trying to become a citizen, you may be denied. The stakes are too high. Do not simply accept your drug possession charges. Contact Gregory Casale, an experienced Worcester, Massachusetts, drug crimes lawyer to learn about your options and protect your rights.

Know Your Rights
When police officers pull someone over or come to a home in search of drugs and drug paraphernalia, they often convince people to let them do a search. The questions they ask (such as: “Since you have nothing to hide, mind if I search the car?”) are meant to confuse and persuade people to say “yes” to a search.
If police officers ask you to let them search your body, your car, your luggage, your home or your personal effects, say NO. Do not consent to a search without first talking to a Massachusetts drug crimes attorney.
You have rights that are meant to protect you from illegal searches and seizures and from intrusions by the government. These rights include:
- The right to remain silent
- The right to speak to/call an attorney before answering any questions
- The right to refuse a search without a warrant
Worcester, Massachusetts, drug possession lawyer Gregory Casale is a skilled trial lawyer who will investigate your narcotics violation charges and bring any defense available to you. This may include challenging the police officers’ actions when they performed the search and determining whether they had the right to seize any evidence. If the police acted unlawfully, they might not be able to use the evidence against you.
