The Law Office of James M. Borden, PLLC, can advise you about your legal options if you were arrested for:

  • Drug possession

Drug crime cases in North Carolina often involve overwhelming evidence of guilt. If there is no way to get that evidence suppressed by the court, an effective strategy may be to work to keep the case out of Superior Court, where the consequences are more severe. The district attorney's office decides which cases will remain in district court. Mr. Borden is a former prosecutor, and he fully understands the best strategies for protecting his clients.

The Consequences Of A Drug Conviction

In addition to fines, prison, probation and community service, any drug charge will result in:
