Prescription Drug Crimes in Nassau County Require Serious Legal Representation

Prescription drug crimes have been on the rise for quite some time in Nassau County and across New York. While there are individuals involved in the illegal sales or distribution of these drugs, the majority of prescription drug crimes stem from addicts. Regardless of your specific circumstances, if you have been charged with a drug crime, it is important to get the right legal counsel on your side immediately.

The lawyers at Lerner & Lerner, P.C., defend clients in Nassau County and across Long Island against a wide range of prescription drug crimes. We are former prosecutors and have more than 70 years of combined experience.

Our team is strongly positioned to help you address allegations of:

  • Forged prescriptions
  • Altered prescriptions

  • Illegal prescription or distribution of prescription drugs

We handle prescription drug offenses associated with any type of drug, including but not limited to:

  • Xanax

Even if you have a legal prescription for a drug, it is illegal to falsify prescriptions to increase quantity, and it is illegal to obtain additional drugs beyond that of your prescription.

When Addiction Is an Issue in Your Prescription Drug Crime

Many individuals face terrible addictions to prescription drugs. Some were injured and at one point took the drugs legally, but are now hooked even though their injuries have healed. For others, experimentation with an illegal drug quickly turned into a full-blown chemical dependency. If you are struggling with a drug addiction and have been charged with a prescription drug crime, there are alternative solutions to resolving your matter.

Many counties in New York use drug court as an alternative to the traditional criminal court model. In drug court, you agree to plead guilty to your drug charge, but instead of jail time, you must participate in a treatment program as laid out by the court. Upon successful completion of the program, your misdemeanor charges may be reduced to a violation or dismissed, and a felony charge may be reduced to a misdemeanor or even dismissed.

It is important to note that drug court is not a given in all cases. You must show the judge that you admit to your problem and are serious about making positive changes. Our law firm can help you understand the steps to take in order to support your request for drug court.
