In the Glen Burnie and Baltimore area, drugs are an everyday occurrence. Near airports, police narcotics teams are on high alert, and BWI Marshall is no exception. Allow me to review your case in order to look for potential defenses that you might be unaware of, even if you believe there is no hope for you. Do not be scared to contact our skilled criminal defense attorneys at ZSTS Law Group for a strong legal defense. We treat your case seriously and fight assiduously to secure a dismissal or acquittal if you are charged with:
Even if you have been found in clear possession of a controlled dangerous substance (CDS), there are many factors that must be considered before you can be convicted of a drug crime. We have more than 10 years of experience unraveling drug cases and helping people avoid convictions.

Let us fight to have your charges dropped or reduced, despite the serious consequences and the allure of a plea bargain. In drug prosecutions, there are very strict rules of evidence, and by concentrating on the inappropriate treatment of the evidence, we can frequently damage the state's case against you. We can assist you in avoiding any criminal activity.
