In the typical prescription fraud case, you’re actually looking at two offenses: illegal drug possession and fraud. Unless you got caught with an unusually large quantity of OxyContin or some other painkiller, the fraud threatens to cause you more trouble than the drug charge, both immediately and in the long run.

Early intervention by a skilled defense attorney, preferably before you’re formally charged, can be the key to minimizing your exposure to punishment on felony fraud charges. We’ll explain the best alternative to pursue in your particular circumstances, and then work toward amended charges on less serious offenses. Depending on your prior record, you might be eligible for a drug diversion program or community service. If we can get the charges dismissed, your case might be eligible for eventual expungement.
