Helping You Challenge Drug Charges
If you have been charged with a drug offense, from possession to sale/distribution to conspiracy, you want an experienced attorney to protect your interests. If you are convicted, the consequences could be devastating. In addition to fines, penalties and even jail time, you could lose your eligibility for federal financial aid and be expelled from school, and it could also affect current or future employment.
Drug Possession ◊ Trafficking ◊ Sale ◊ Distribution ◊ Conspiracy
My name is attorney Frank Harper. I represent people throughout eastern North Carolina who have been charged with a misdemeanor or felony drug crime, including students at East Carolina University and Pitt Community College. I will fully explain the law and the process to you, as well as my strategy so that you always know I will fight for your rights.
Representing Clients Facing Felony And Misdemeanor Offenses
I handle the defense of drug crimes in state and federal courts, including charges of:
- Simple possession of illegal drugs
- Possession with intent to sell, deliver or distribute
- Sale, distribution or trafficking of controlled substances
- Conspiracy to possess, sell, traffic or distribute drugs
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
I take cases involving all types of illegal substances, including marijuana, cocaine, crack, methamphetamines, heroin and prescription drugs.
When you hire me to defend you on a drug charge, I will conduct a thorough investigation of the facts, evidence and circumstances surrounding your arrest. I will examine evidence, review police reports, and question witnesses to inquire whether police officers had reasonable suspicion and/or probable cause for any search or seizure, as well as your arrest.
I will also investigate whether you were properly advised of your constitutional rights before you made any statements to law enforcement officials. If constitutional and statutory safeguards are not met, I will seek the suppression of evidence and dismissal of the charges, if appropriate.
Assisting Students Charged With Drug Violations
When you have your whole life in front of you, don’t let a drug arrest or conviction limit your opportunities. Since 2001, I have aggressively defended students charged with misdemeanor and felony drug offenses related to marijuana, Adderall, Xanax, cocaine and heroin.
I have the skill set and dedication you need to challenge prosecutors in court. I have also successfully represented students in hearings before conduct and rights boards. Whether you are a North Carolina resident or out-of-state student, I am ready and prepared to take your case.
