Drug Charges Defense Attorney in Erie, PA

Drug Crime Lawyer Defends Clients Against Marijuana: Possession Charges in Erie County, PA

In Pennsylvania, the “war on drugs” continues to be waged — with many of those charged being people who suffer from addiction and who are in need of treatment. Drug crimes can include possession with the intent to deliver (PWID), simple possession of marijuana, heroin, cocaine, or other controlled substances, and possession of drug paraphernalia like pipes, bongs, and even Ziploc baggies.

“Tim was recommended by another lawyer, and I’m really really glad he was.  Tim and his assistant (Angelina) treated me with the utmost respect, not like a criminal.  The result was unbelievably no jail, but the completion of an ARD program. I would highly recommend Tim George for a criminal case.”
S.R. (Drug Crime)
