A drug charge is a serious matter no matter how it came about. Whether you are battling a serious addiction, or just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, drug offenses can have a grave impact on you and your future. A key factor in defending a drug case centers on how law enforcement discovered and seized the drugs in the first place. It is not unusual for people in the vicinity of the incident to be falsely accused of possessing illegal substances simply because the police officers involved could not pinpoint who the drugs belonged to, therefore they charge everyone involved. Drug offenses are typically charged as felonies, with consequences spanning from losing your drivers license to not being able to secure a job to spending years in prison and on probation if convicted.

When charged with drug possession, it’s imperative to have a Fort Collins drug attorney who understands that the primary issues in a drug case stem from your constitutional rights and if they have been compromised. At Schwartz & Waible, our Fort Collins drug attorneys are both very experienced at aggressively litigating drug cases, and have been successful on many occasions in suppressing evidence that was obtained in violation of people’s constitutional rights. This includes litigation at the highest court in Colorado (See the Colorado Supreme Court decision in People v. Fines, 127 P.3d 79 (Colo. 2006). Our Fort Collins drug attorneys are able to adeptly explain to a judge, prosecutor, and jury how things are not always what they seem in order to protect your rights.

Additionally, Schwartz & Waible recognizes a drug charge can be a serious wake up call for someone with a substance abuse problem.  An addiction to drugs such as cocaine, methamphetamine, or prescription pain pills can have far reaching effects–not only with the courts, but with everything that is important to a person. Often times, in cases such as this, our Fort Collins drug attorneys can assist in procuring treatment and will work with the prosecutor to help reduce criminal consequences. As Fort Collins drug attorneys we are familiar with several resources and programs that can help our clients who are charged with illegal possession of narcotics in Northern Colorado, and will do our best to help our clients when necessary.

Our family was in need of a lawyer twice in the past 5 years. Both times we called upon Schwartz and Waible Law Firm. They worked very hard and kept us informed every step of the way. Helped understand the ins and the outs of the law. We were very pleased with the out come of both cases. Hopefully won’t need further need, but if we are won’t hesitate to call upon this law firm. So if you are looking for a Law Firm that works as a team, are caring about their clients, and will do the best job possible you may want to call upon Schwartz and Waible. Thank you so much for your help. Sharon and Jim, January, 2011 We welcome this opportunity to extol Kirk Waible, one of the finest lawyers we’ve ever known. Our background is in education—we are retired after long careers of teaching classes from kindergarten through graduate school. During the past year (2010), Kirk represented someone very close to us. In a difficult, often convoluted, case, Kirk cut right through the mazes of the legal system to present his client’s defense so effectively that the outcome was far more successful than we had ever hoped. We found Kirk to be personable, smart, thorough, accessible, and well-versed in the law. Years ago, I (Jim) worked at length for a state legislature and dealt with many, many lawyers on a daily basis. Some of them were brilliant in their profession. But I feel Kirk stands head and shoulders above even the best of them. We would engage him in an instant to represent us in any legal matter.

I retained Jeff Schwartz of Schwartz & Waible after I was charged with a felony. Jeff was caring, professional, detail-oriented, and thorough in how he handled my case. He has a strong knowledge of criminal law and knows the Larimer County court system and its players well. He was able to negotiate the best possible plea deal for me, and I am grateful for his representation. I highly recommend Schwartz & Waible’s services.
