One of the most important defense weapons in many drug cases is a motion to suppress. The Fourth Amendment protects people from unreasonable searches and seizures by police. If the police violated your constitutional rights when stopping and searching you, the evidence obtained from you (i.e. drugs) should not be admissible in evidence during the state's case. At a motion to suppress hearing, a seasoned and effective criminal defense attorney can poke holes in law enforcement officers' testimony and argue to the judge that the evidence should be excluded.

Depending on the offense, it may be possible for the Law Office of Alex Kriksciun to negotiate a reduced charge or to place the client in a pre-trial diversion program. If you are enrolled in a diversion program, typically the charges will be dropped in exchange for your performing community service, agreeing to random drug tests, attending counseling, obtaining an assessment, going to meetings, and other related tasks.
