Drug Possession

Charlotte, North Carolina Defense Attorneys

People charged with drug possession are often casual users or suffering from drug addiction. Unfortunately, the justice system often treats them like any other criminal. If you or a loved one has been charged with possession, you need a tough criminal defense lawyer to protect your rights and get the help you need.

Attorneys Greg Plumides and John Cacheris provide strategic, aggressive state and federal drug crime defense to adults and juveniles charged in North Carolina. They have the experience to stand up to state and federal prosecutors. They understand that many people charged with possession are nonviolent offenders who had drugs for their personal use only. In these cases, they may argue for reduced penalties and treatment programs as an alternative to jail time.

Mr. Plumides is prepared to fight to keep you out of jail. In addition to his years of practice, he is a very active and respected member of the local bar. He is currently the Co-Chairman of the Mecklenburg County Criminal Defense Lawyers Association. He is serving on the Mecklenburg County Criminal Courts Rules Committee and Mecklenburg County Criminal Courts Committee. In both of these capacities, he meets with judges and various courthouse officials, as a private bar representative. Gregory has also served on the Mecklenburg County Bar Fee Dispute Committee, Mecklenburg County Bar Candidate Interview Committee and recently taught DWI law to local attorneys under a Continuing Legal Education program.

Mr. Cacheris is a permanent member of the 4th Circuit judicial conference and the North Carolina Advocates for Justice. His work has led to numerous awards and honors, including the 10 Best Client Satisfaction Award from the American Institute of Criminal Law.
