Alpena County Criminal Defense

Alpena County Criminal Defense Attorneys

Experienced Criminal Defense Lawyers Providing DUI, Criminal And Drug Defense

Have you been charged with misdemeanor or felony drug charges in Alpena County, Michigan?

With attorneys throughout the state, we defend people in every county in Michigan who have been facing drug possession charges or other serious drug crimes related to:

  • Marijuana (pot) or hashish (hash), including marijuana grow houses
  • Powder cocaine or crack cocaine
  • Amphetamines and methamphetamines, including meth labs
  • Heroin and other illegal opiates
  • Hallucinogens such as LSD, PCP or psilocybin (mushrooms)
  • Ecstasy (MDMA, X or E), GHB, Rohypnol, ketamine (special K) or other designer drugs
  • Prescription drugs such as OxyContin or Vicodin
  • Drug paraphernalia
  • Felony firearm possession in connection with drug charges
  • Conspiracy, money laundering and other charges relating to a major drug case
  • Manufacturing
  • Possession with intent to deliver (PWID)

In Michigan, drug charges and penalties can escalate quickly. Buying a small amount of pot (marijuana) is a misdemeanor, but owning a pot plant is a felony—with a potential four-year prison sentence.

When Michigan drug cultivation or manufacturing is suspected, police make no exception for recreational use. Police and prosecutors are serious about placing anyone suspected of distributing or manufacturing drugs behind bars.

But don’t underestimate the cost even a misdemeanor possession may have on your future. At the criminal defense firm of Grabel & Associates, we aggressively defend individuals accused of drug crimes—from misdemeanor possession to felony firearm possession in connection with drug charges—to keep you out of jail and ensure your freedom.

Contact us 24/7 if you have been questioned or charged in connection with a drug crime.
