We Know How To Defend Against Drug Charges

Are you or a family member accused of possessing or dealing drugs? We have represented many people in your same shoes. You are right to be worried, but you are not convicted yet.

At Bennett & Gulley, P.A., our criminal defense lawyers are both former prosecutors. That experience helps us to help you. Knowing how the state builds its case allows us to fight a conviction or limit the consequences.

We handle cases throughout the Twin Counties and Wilson County. In fact, our firm represents the majority of people arrested for drugs in the greater Rocky Mount area. Call us today at 252-977-1911 to discover why so many of your fellow citizens put their trust in us.

Skilled Drug Crime Defense

Our attorneys can defend every drug offense scenario you might be facing:

  • Marijuana charges
  • Possession of meth, heroin, cocaine or other drugs
  • Possession of oxycodone or other prescription narcotics
  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Manufacturing drugs or growing marijuana
  • Drug trafficking charges
  • Prior drug convictions or weapon enhancements

We know that jail or prison would be devastating to you and your family. We know that a felony drug crime on your record will make it hard to get good jobs. You can count on us to do everything in our power to prevent a conviction. Sometimes we can get the charges reduced or negotiate an alternative to jail. If we can’t resolve your case out of court, we are always prepared to fight for you at trial.

Former Prosecutors On Your Side

Thomas Gulley Jr. and Spier Bennett III have deep roots in North Carolina. They formerly served as assistant district attorneys for Nash, Edgecombe and Wilson counties and have nearly 50 years of combined legal experience. Our lawyers are well-versed in the law and familiar with the local prosecutors and judges who are involved in your case.

When we defend drug charges, we look at the circumstances of the arrest. Did law enforcement violate your Fourth Amendment rights in searching your home or your vehicle? Does the evidence support the charges, or would a lesser charge be more appropriate? If the charges stem from a traffic stop, did police have reasonable suspicion to pull you over or were they just “fishing” or profiling you?

Experience Matters When Your Freedom Is On The Line

We provide free consultations to discuss your drug charges. You can stop by between 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. on weekdays without an appointment, or call 252-977-1911 or contact us by email to schedule a time.
