Orange County Drug Defense Lawyers

There is no such thing as a minor drug crime. Even misdemeanor possession of a small amount of marijuana can lead to loss of eligibility of student loans and could even create a roadblock in your career plans. The majority of drug crimes are felonies and a conviction would result in the loss of civil rights and a permanent record as a convicted felon.

At the law firm of Catania, Mahon & Rider, PLLC, our attorneys will help you navigate the complex world of criminal law. Our goal is to preserve your freedom and your reputation by providing the highest level of advocacy. With a main office in Newburgh, we represent people throughout the Hudson Valley, including Middleton.

Protecting You From Harsh Consequences

Our lawyers represent people who are charged with possession or sales of marijuana, prescription drugs, cocaine, meth, heroin and other controlled substances in New York. No matter what kind of drug charges you face, there is always something an experienced defense attorney can do to mitigate the consequences.

If you are a first-time offender, it may be possible to resolve the charges without a criminal conviction by participating in a rehabilitative program, such as drug treatment and community service. If you successfully complete the program, the drug charges will be dismissed after a period of time.

Depending on the circumstances of your arrest, you may also have defenses available to you. For example, if the police violated your constitutional rights by conducting an illegal search and seizure, the drug evidence may not be admissible in court.

Our lawyers are skilled negotiators who know from experience as former district attorneys what a prosecutor might offer. In addition, we are accomplished courtroom practitioners, never hesitating to take a case to trial if that might result in a better outcome for a client.
