The Value Of Retaining A Trial Lawyer

Each year many young (and young at heart) people come to visit Ocean City for vacation or summer jobs. Sometimes the wild and crazy days and warm partying nights can disrupt normal sensibilities and allow someone to make a bad decision resulting in a serious brush with the law.

Many teens and young adults make a bad decision and get arrested for possession of drugs. The laws are generally the same across the drug types but differ in quantity of possession and severity of criminality by what type of drug — from marijuana to cocaine, OxyContin, prescription drugs and up to methamphetamines and heroin. By far the most common drug arrest in Ocean City and surrounding Worcester County, Maryland, is for marijuana — or as OCPD classifies it "CDS: possession-marihuana". If you have been arrested for possession of marijuana, please visit our CDS Possession of Marijuana page.

Results-Oriented Trial Lawyer

Results are important. You are not paying for a wallflower; get an attorney who is tested and experienced. Whether you've made a mistake or are 100 percent innocent, you want results if you have been charged with any crime, especially with a drug crime. Most people are scared and want to avoid jail and a criminal record.

That's what we want, too. Frank Benvenuto is an Ocean City, Maryland, drug crime attorney who is an experienced trial lawyer. At our law firm, we are always prepared to go to trial, because that gives us more negotiation options. A drug charge can ruin your career and damage your personal relationships. Our job is to help you as much as possible.

Protecting Your Rights

On occasion, the arresting officer or another police official will violate your rights. If that has happened, we will make full use of it.

A common misconception is that your rights were violated if your Miranda warning was not read to you. In fact, Miranda is triggered only when a suspect is in custody and is also being questioned. Unless both conditions are present, the police are not required to read you your Miranda warnings.

The law can be complicated. That is why you need an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side.
