Drug Crimes

If you have been arrested for doctor shopping, stealing prescription pads or for illegal sale/distribution of prescription drugs, you should be aware of the serious consequences you will face, if convicted. The penalties for medical professionals who are convicted of prescription drug fraud are especially harsh and may include loss of the right to practice medicine in New Jersey.

Eric Morrell has defended clients in cases involving all types of controlled substances, from prescription drugs to street drugs. He has also handled Wiretap cases. If you hire us to defend you in a drug prosecution, we will work with private investigators to learn the details of your arrest. We will carefully review the evidence to determine whether police had probable cause for any search, seizure or detention, and will confirm that you were advised of your rights under Miranda—if you were taken into custody. If your rights were violated, we will seek the exclusion of evidence and the dismissal of charges, if appropriate.
