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.

Navigating The Criminal Justice System And Drug Court

You cannot afford to have an attorney learning as they go when your rights, reputation, and future are on the line. You need representation from an advocate with experience handling the complexities of a narcotics prosecution. Isabelle Raquin is the current Attorney Liaison for Drug Court in Montgomery County and has been interacting with this court for more than five years in cases involving charges such as the possession or trafficking of:
  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Prescription pain killers
  • Methamphetamines
  • Synthetic drugs
Whether you face charges of simple possession of marijuana or have been accused of dealing with a controlled dangerous substance, you can rely on our firm to focus on protecting your legal rights as well as setting you up for a better future. We combine our legal acumen with a comprehensive knowledge of addiction issues, available treatments, and alternative sentencing options.
