Drug Charges in Massachusetts Lead To Severe Penalties If Convicted
The State of Massachusetts takes drug charges very seriously. Drug crimes are prosecuted aggressively and judges often impose the harshest sentences—even for a first offense.
A drug charge in Massachusetts carries severe consequences. If convicted, you could lose your driver’s license, be subjected to hefty fines, and spend years behind bars. In addition, a conviction can limit your employment opportunities and can damage your reputation in your community.

When the Cops get it Wrong, Oberhauser Law gets it Right
Often times, police officers ignore proper police procedure and Massachusetts’ rules of search and seizure. They may rely on bogus police informants, obtain illegal search warrants, and mishandle evidence. There are also times when police officers set up drug suspects through entrapment.
Criminal Defense Attorney Oberhauser knows how to scrutinize cases for police mistakes and misconduct. This attention to detail allows him to expose the holes in the prosecution’s case against you. When this occurs, he can make a motion to suppress evidence that is vital to a conviction. This usually results in drug cases being dismissed or thrown out of court.
We represents clients charged with drug crimes throughout Massachusetts including Middlesex County, Essex County, Suffolk County, and Worcester County.
