Eagle County & Vail Drug Crimes Lawyer

Eagle and Summit counties have both recently seen the introduction of a multi-agency drug task force. The goal of these task forces is to reduce the local impact of unlawful controlled substances. What this has done is create “sting” operations using undercover officers and confidential or criminal informants (CIs) to locate local dealers. If you have become the target of one of these operations, speaking with an experienced drug crimes lawyer in the Eagle County and Edwards areas is a must. These task forces may be asking you for information in exchange for leniency with the district attorney. These promises are often not enforceable and may expose you to more risk. If you choose to cooperate with the task force, make sure you have an Eagle County drug crimes lawyer by your side to protect your rights.  

We have experience with charges arising out of substances such as: Heroin, Fentanyl, Carfentanil, Methamphetamine, Ecstasy (MDMA), Cocaine, Acid (LSD), Mushrooms (psilocybin), and Marijuana (yes, certain quantities of marijuana are still illegal); as well as prescription pills such as opioids (oxycodone, hydrocodone), benzos (Xanax, Valium), amphetamines (Adderall), sleep aids such as Ambien, and barbiturates

In 2013, the Colorado legislature revised the criminal drug laws in Colorado. This was due in large part to a national trend to eliminate lengthy sentences for drug offenses. This revision resulted in a new category of felonies in Colorado called “drug felonies.” For cases such as possession or use, you must be afforded the opportunity for treatment or community supervision before you are sentenced to jail. Make sure the District Attorney and the local judges are following these statutory guidelines by retaining an Eagle County Criminal Defence Attorney at Vail Valley Lawyers to advocate for you.

These are serious crimes with devastating consequences. Whether we are negotiating a reduction in charges or defending you in court, trust our firm to diligently fight to protect your rights and your freedoms.
