Assertive Defense Against The Full Range Of Drug Charges

Although drug charges in Washington vary greatly, a conviction of any drug charge can seriously derail your plans for the future. At Hansen Law, PLLC, in Yakima, we understand the importance of aggressively defending every drug charge.

The legal strategy when defending against drug charges depends on the facts of the case. We take the time to review these facts carefully and develop a defense strategy that makes the most sense for each client. In some cases, this may mean challenging the charges and preparing for trial. In other cases, it may make sense to negotiate an agreement with prosecutors that keeps you out of jail, incorporates alternative sentencing options and minimizes the impact on your life.

A Former Prosecutor Who Now Fights For Defendants

Our goal is always to do what is best for each client's long-term future. Attorney George T. Hansen is a former prosecutor who understands how the government approaches these cases and the flexibility that is possible when negotiating with prosecutors. We defend clients against the full range of misdemeanor and felony charges, including:

  • Possession of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and other controlled substances
  • Possession with intent to sell or distribute
  • Delivery of a controlled substance
  • Drug manufacturing
  • Drug trafficking
  • Illegal distribution of prescription drugs
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia

Drug cases often rely on evidence that was seized by police during a traffic stop or a search of other property. Attorney Hansen will review all police procedures to determine if they overstepped their legal authority, making the evidence inadmissible in court. Mr. Hansen knows the law and how to make it work best for his clients.
