If convicted of writing fraudulent prescriptions or illegally possessing prescription drugs, you face expensive fines, prison, and a permanent criminal record. However, the court may take into consideration the circumstances concerning your case. In many instances, people get addicted to prescription painkillers after an injury. In other cases, people suffering from anxiety or depression develop a dependence on highly addictive benzodiazepines, such as Ativan.
When their medication runs out and withdrawal sets in, they may be led to obtain prescription drugs through unlawful means. At Suzuki Law Offices, we defend people charged with prescription drug crimes. We work with medical experts and drug counselors in order to explain the addictive nature of certain kinds of prescription drugs, as well as their physiological and psychological impacts. If you've been arrested for forging a prescription or illegally possessing prescription drugs, contact us now.
Our attorneys make sure the court understands your situation and the psychological and medical reasons that led to your abuse of prescription drugs.

Depending on the facts of your case, however, a plea bargain may not be in your best interests.
