Seeking Positive Outcomes For Our Clients
Many first-time drug offenders can avoid conviction and jail time through alternative judicial outcomes. If you qualify for a pretrial diversion or judicial diversion and comply with the terms of the program, you will not go to jail and no conviction will be entered into your record. Participation in a drug treatment program is often required.
Our attorneys have long-established working relationships with prosecutors in Coffee County, and we have helped many clients obtain diversion outcomes. If you qualify, we will seek to obtain such an outcome for you.
