Strong Defense Against Sale or Distribution Charges

Drug laws tend to reflect political pressures. In Ohio and across the nation, the pressure to crack down on drugs has filled prisons with many people who arguably don't need to be there.

There are signs that this is changing, as Ohio considers the legalization of marijuana up to a certain amount even as the state struggles to respond to an epidemic of heroin addiction.

Amid the shifting sands of politics, however, this remains true: If you are facing charges for selling, distributing or trafficking in drugs, you need to get a good defense lawyer on your side right away.

La Rue, Attorney at Law, has a proven track record dating back more than two decades of providing skilled, aggressive defense against all types of drug charges, including sale or distribution.
