“The Defense Never Rests.”

A Dynamic Defense Against Drug Charges

It is no exaggeration to say that drug charges have the potential to drastically rewrite your future as you know it. A conviction can result in prison time and a criminal record can haunt you for the rest of your life. At RaquinMercer LLC, attorneys Isabelle Raquin and Steve Mercer offer our clients in Maryland and Washington, D.C. a strong defense against felony and misdemeanor drug charges.
We believe good people can find themselves facing drug charges and understand the difference between social use and substance abuse. We view drug abuse as a public health issue that should be remedied via treatment, not via incarceration. Call 301-750-9702 for a consultation with a proven criminal defense attorney.
