Probably the largest portion of criminal cases we handle at Deal & Hooks are drug offenses. These range from minor misdemeanor possession of marijuana all the way to a first degree felony for drug possession and trafficking. Potential penalties vary depending on the charge, but even the smallest offense carries significant penalties.
We have represented clients charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and prescription medicine in various municipal courts throughout Ohio. Likewise, we have represented people charged with possession of crack, cocaine, heroin, LSD, meth, felony possession of marijuana, pills, trafficking, engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity, illegal manufacture, and tampering with prescriptions throughout Ohio. We have successfully represented them at numerous stages from pre-indictment to appeals. Finally, we have successfully defended at the trial and appellate level those charged with violating federal drug laws. Mr. Hooks successfully vacated two life sentences on appeal for an individual convicted of possession of meth with a mandatory life sentence.
