Columbus Marijuana Possession Lawyer

For young people charged with possession of marijuana, representation by an experienced criminal defense attorney is critical to ensuring that one mistake does not put their whole futures at risk. I am criminal defense attorney Terry K. Sherman. With 40 years of experience and more than 300 jury trials, I am prepared to aggressively defend young people facing marijuana possession charges.

Franklin County Drug Charge Attorney

Marijuana possession is usually a misdemeanor. The penalties include mandatory license suspension. A second offense can lead to jail time and a six-month license suspension. I have tried hundreds of cases in state and federal courts, as well as in mayor's court, where many marijuana possession cases are tried, particularly if the charge involves a small amount.

In addition to these consequences, young people face the possibility of expulsion from school and losing scholarships and on-campus housing if they are convicted of marijuana possession. Criminal charges can make it very difficult for young people to find future employment. For these reasons, it is essential to seek representation from a lawyer who can fight the charges.

For the past 15 years, I have been listed in Best Lawyers in America and for the past 10 years, my name has appeared in Ohio Super Lawyers. In addition, I have an AV Preeminent rating* through Martindale-Hubbell.
