Defending All Types of Serious Drug Crimes in Michigan
Being charged with possession or distribution of controlled substances or drugs is one of the most serious criminal charges anyone can face. In certain circumstances, these charges can result in life sentences or many years, even decades behind bars. Our Michigan drug crimes attorneys are here to help you.
When facing the risk of such severe punishment, it is critical to retain an attorney that can address the three factors that lead to favorable results:
Trial Representation – The willingness and ability to go to trial and fight for the client and their rights
Forensic Science – Drugs are created through science and scientific evidence is what leads to convictions or acquittals
Knowledge and Expertise – Laws are complex and detailed, the greater the knowledge of the attorney, the greater the defense they can provide
These three factors are what make the attorneys of The Law Offices of Barton Morris the best when it comes to defending clients charged with drug crimes.
Our attorneys are expert litigators and trial lawyers. Having tried dozens of cases throughout their careers, they have racked up hundreds of hours of experience defending clients in front of numerous judges and juries. Don’t risk your freedom with other attorneys; rely on the only attorneys in Michigan to offer much more than a Law Degree to protect you and your rights. Rely on our lawyers’ extensive knowledge, experience, education and track record.

The state of Michigan classifies narcotics into categories called “schedules,” ranging from Schedule I (identified as high potential for abuse and no medical value) to Schedule V (low-risk drugs, often can be purchased over the counter). There are many circumstances that may result in drug crime charges, including possession, trafficking, use, prescription fraud, manufacturing, and distribution.
The penalties for drug crimes in Michigan are some of the most severe, and the consequences of a conviction can be life-altering. An experienced criminal defense attorney will be familiar with all aspects of drug crimes and can help you understand both the charges brought against you as well as what your best course of action is.

Mr. Morris and his associates legal knowledge is unsurpassed bar none. Although my case was unique, having been on the lam for sixteen years, Mr. Morris was able to prove that the lack of evidence was detrimental to the prosecution and all charges were dismissed. Mr. Morris happened to be the second lawyer that I contacted. The first lawyer said he would take my case for a $10K retainer fee and that I had a long road ahead of me. The next day, I contacted Mr. Morris and knew from our first conversation that I was in good hands with his representation. Stop shopping around and hire Barton Morris today!
