Oklahoma City, OK – The cost of hiring a criminal attorney has changed for a number of drug related crimes. Since the controversial State Questions, 780 and 781 have been put into effect last year; certain drug crimes previously prosecuted as felonies are now considered misdemeanors. The original intent of SQ 780 and 781 was to reduce the number of drug crime offenders incarcerated in the state’s prisons. A surprising side effect is that legal representation for many of these crimes has become less expensive.
Still, this has not changed the way criminal defense attorneys at Phillips & Associates handle cases be it a felony or a misdemeanor. Sue M. gave the law firm a 5-star review saying, “I was facing charges that would have devastated my life. My friend referred me to Dustin, and I can say that he lives up to his reputation and then some. He was able to get my charges dismissed, and I never had to go to court. I only met Dustin once, and I found him to be straight up professional and honest.” Matthew A. also had to face the same circumstance. With Phillips & Associates help, this is what he has to say, “I was wrongly accused of a crime, a friend referred me to Dustin, and it was the best decision I ever made. He met with the DA before my court date, presented evidence, and the case was dismissed. I never had to go to court – he is that good.”
This law firm in Oklahoma City is one of the trusted firms in all types of criminal charges. Just this year, Phillips & Associates worked to dismiss several high profile crimes such as 1st-degree murder, 1st-degree burglary, and domestic abuse, among others. As to SQ 780 and 781, these changes in Oklahoma have made it easier to handle drug possession charges. The savings fund from 781 is expected to benefit drug abuse victims and drug addicts. It should be noted that the funds are allocated for rehabilitative programs and mental health treatments for offenders. So instead of incarcerating victims for many years, the state changes will ensure that there are funds for treatments.
It should be noted that SQ 780 only categorizes drug possession by the user as a misdemeanor. Possession by drug manufacturers and sellers are still considered felonies. As for those who are charged with drug possession, representation by top criminal attorneys has now become more affordable.
Phillips & Associates handles all types of criminal cases including domestic crimes, violent crimes, white collar crimes, and sex crimes.
