Drug Crimes

Nevada Drug Crime Defense Attorney Patricia M. Erickson

Conviction on any state or federal drug crime is serious. You may be facing mandatory sentences for even seemingly minor charges. If you have been charged with a drug offense in Nevada or in a federal court, turn to me, attorney Patricia M. Erickson . For over 20 years, I have aggressively represented individuals facing a wide range of criminal charges, including drug crimes.

I stay in close contact with my clients. I keep them informed as to the status of their cases to ensure their needs and interests are being served. My experience in court is extensive, having argued clients' cases in state and federal court. Though I am a skilled trial lawyer, it is important to explore all types of potential means of resolution for my clients, including negotiating a plea agreement with the prosecution.

Fighting Drug Charges in State or Federal Court

There are many types of drug crimes for which you may be accused, including:

  • Drug possession
  • Sale
  • Distribution
  • Manufacture
  • Cultivation
  • Trafficking
  • Importation

These crimes can pertain to a range of illegal and prescription drugs, such as:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Crack
  • Heroin
  • Methamphetamine (crystal meth)
  • Oxycontin
  • Xanax


Reviewing All Case Evidence

I review the facts of your case to determine if there are any issues with your arrest or possible violations of the Fourth Amendment. If the police engaged in an illegal search and seizure during your drug arrest, I will file a motion to suppress the evidence. If granted by the court, this may lead to some or all of your charges being dismissed.

Drug Crime Consequences

The severity of the punishment for a conviction of a drug offense varies, based on the amount of the drug seized and the facts surrounding the arrest. Long prison sentences, large fines and confiscation of property and/or assets may apply.
