Woodland Criminal Defense
My office defends clients accused of drug possession in Woodland, and throughout Burlington County. If you are facing CDS possession charges, you need an attorney who understands issues regarding police searches of persons and motor vehicles. A suppression motion may be successful in getting the charges against you dismissed if police did not adhere to proper procedure, case law and constitutional principles.
