Drug Defense Attorneys With Courtroom Experience


A simple drug charge may seem like an inconvenience. However, these charges are like other criminal charges where repeat offenses mean an increase in penalties and sentencing. Many do not realize long-term effects of a conviction until it is too late. With this in mind, it is always a wise decision to hire an experienced attorney who will protect your rights and build a strong defense against the charge.

Cook & Connelly serves the needs of clients in the areas of drug crimes and criminal defense. Established in 1959 in Summerville, we represent clients throughout Georgia, Tennessee and throughout the Southeast. We take an aggressive stance on behalf of our clients and work to achieve the best possible solution for their situations. Our firm has the experience, the resources and the tools necessary to handle all your legal needs. We can even be effective in fighting back when law enforcement unfairly seizes property and money in cases of asset forfeiture, or what is commonly known by some as policing for profit.

Misdemeanor Drug Crimes Are Still Serious

Drug cases handled on the state court level are misdemeanor charges, and often include simple drug possession charges or charges involving possession or distribution of marijuana. Prescription medication cases involving fraud or illegal possession of a prescription drug may also be considered a misdemeanor charge.

While misdemeanor charges carry a lighter punishment than felony drug charges, they can still drastically affect your future. Without aggressive representation, you could be facing probation, jail time or a permanent mark on your record. We will work to minimize the consequences as much as possible and try to get the charges dismissed.

Felony Drug Charges Can Be Life-Changing

It is imperative you seek counsel immediately if you have been charged with a felony drug crime. As is the case whenever an individual is taken into custody, you have the absolute right to remain silent during questioning. Once you are arraigned, you only have 10 days to suppress, so you need a lawyer’s timely review to help you with your case. We have handled a number of large felony drug crime cases in the Northern District Federal Courts and the Superior Courts. We have extensive experience representing clients facing the following charges:

  • Drug trafficking
  • Drug manufacturing
  • Meth possession and distribution
  • Cocaine manufacturing
  • Serious drug charges involving unlawful possession of a weapon
  • Illegal search of a person, home or automobile
