Have You Been Arrested For A Drug Crime?

Nonviolent drug offenses are among the most common types of criminal charges residents in Indiana face. Often, the circumstances surrounding drug-related cases are complex and require a thorough investigation of the facts and evidence.

At Matthew D. Barrett, P.C., we have successfully represented hundreds of clients in drug-related cases. We have the experience and knowledge that is necessary to defend against the most serious drug felony charges and are committed to helping you overcome the legal challenges you face.

We represent clients who have been charged with drug possession, manufacturing and trafficking related to:

  • Marijuana
  • Heroin
  • Fentanyl
  • Prescription medications
  • Methamphetamine
  • Cocaine
  • Ecstasy

Investigating Police Procedure

Criminal defense cases often hinge on how well the police followed proper procedures. Mr. Barrett can identify ways the police may have violated your constitutional rights or proper legal procedure. In some cases, such violations can lead to the complete dismissal of a defendant’s case.

For example, most drug possession cases involve search and seizure issues. If police officers search your home without probable cause or a warrant, there is the possibility of excluding the evidence against you. If police ask to search your property, always decline and request to speak with a lawyer first.

An experienced criminal defense lawyer knows how to look for these elements of your defense. Even if you believe the evidence is overwhelmingly against you, we will work to find the weaknesses in the prosecution’s case and minimize the consequences if you are convicted.
