You’ve Been Arrested in South Florida for Marijuana Possession, What are Your Next Steps?

So you’ve been pulled over for a traffic stop, they’ve done a pat-down search, and the police who have searched your car have found a misdemeanor amount of Marijuana. The good news is that life is not over and you definitely have a manageable problem. The bad news is you need to hire a lawyer. This will be your best and easiest way to either get the charges against you dismissed or to make sure the charges are not on your permanent record.

 

A lawyer will investigate the case for you, determine what evidence is against you and will take the appropriate action to challenge that evidence.  The lawyer can file a motion to suppress on your behalf, if applicable file motions in Limine to keep certain evidence out of your case.  Assuming the lawyer cannot get the case dismissed for you, the lawyer will then attempt to get you a withhold of adjudication which means there will be no permanent mark on your record.

 

The cost of hiring a lawyer to defend you on a simple possession of marijuana case which is a misdemeanor will cost around $1,500.00 to $2,500.00 depending on your prior record.  Hiring a lawyer will give you many advantages. Not only will a lawyer challenge the evidence against you, but the lawyer will ensure that you get the best possible deal. Also you can sign a document called “an authority to represent” which will allow a lawyer to go to court for you without the necessity for you to have to appear. This will save you time, money, and aggravation.
