We have the proven experience to provide a strategy that will afford you the best possible outcome in any situation involving narcotic-related offenses; from driving under the influence, possession of illegal narcotics, or more serious crimes such as narcotic distribution or trafficking.

Your Right To Remain Silent Is A Constitutional Guarantee; Use It.
With very few exceptions, you have the right to remain silent as provided under the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution. If a law enforcement officer has advised you of your right to remain silent, take that advice and stop talking. We encourage all clients to ask for an attorney and remain silent when interrogated by law enforcement. At McDonald Pierangeli Macfarlane, PLLC, our attorneys include a former assistant prosecuting attorney, a retired police sergeant, as well as a team of experienced defense attorneys. Let our experienced team of attorneys answer law enforcement questions on your behalf rather than risk self-incrimination.
