Myrtle Beach Drug Charge Lawyer (843) 692-7953
Marijuana Possession Defense Attorney
South Carolina drug possession laws are among the strictest in the nation. Each year the legislature enacts stricter laws and each year the District Attorney's office makes a push to clean up our streets. I am criminal defense attorney Trenton H. Chambers. I am all for cleaning up our towns and cities from dangerous drugs and drug traffic rings, but the fact is, we have laws that govern how far the District Attorney's office can go. I have practiced criminal defense law in Myrtle Beach for over ten years. In that time I have seen hundreds of residents and visitors charged with drug crimes that far exceeded what the law proscribes.
If you have been charged with a felony or misdemeanor drug crime, don't say another word to the police. Call Myrtle Beach drug charge lawyer Trenton H. Chambers. I will meet with you as soon as possible, and I'll do the talking with the police. Drug charges are serious, and my experience and understanding of how the laws are meant to be applied can be your best defense.
You can't afford to get your drug charge defense wrong!
