Possession of Prescription Drugs Without a Prescription

The law office of Murphy & Price, LLP, has more than 30 years of experience prosecuting and defending federal criminal cases throughout the country. If you are arrested on suspicion of possession of prescription drugs without a prescription, you could face federal charges.

We defend individuals who are facing charges for possession of prescription painkillers, anti-anxiety medications, hypnotics, psychotropic medication and muscle relaxants, including:

  • Oxycontin or Oxycodone
  • Percocet
  • Adderall
  • Vicodin
  • Xanax or Valium
  • Ambien or Lunesta

Although any of the drugs listed above has safe and legal uses, possessing the drugs without a prescription can be a felony. Depending on the amount of drugs allegedly in your possession, you could face years to a lifetime in prison.

Federal Drug Charges Vs. State Drug Charges

Unlike state convictions, federal drug convictions carry much harsher penalties. In addition, because the federal government has the money and resources to aggressively pursue cases, the federal conviction rate is high. If you are under investigation or are facing charges, it's critical to contact a lawyer who has the experience and training to handle federal drug crime cases.

Often, federal criminal cases involve components in multiple state and federal districts. We are more than willing to travel to represent our clients wherever their legal needs take them. In addition, because we have offices in Annapolis, Maryland, and Washington, D.C., our proximity to the federal courts allows us to handle cases efficiently.

We have the skills and experience to guide you through each step of the legal process. Learn more about the help our criminal defense attorneys provide by calling 410-280-2500 or contacting us through our online form.
