Defending Those Accused of Drug Crimes in the Tampa Bay Area

If you have been charged with a drug crime, your freedom, future and reputation are all at stake.  You need a savvy attorney to ensure that your legal rights are protected.  At Barnett Woolums, P.A., we are former Pinellas County prosecutors who now defend against the charges we once prosecuted.  Therefore, we have a particular understanding of the local courts, prosecutors and police.  In each case, we investigate the alleged charges and determine how best to protect our client’s rights.

An arrest alone on drug charges can result in a criminal record that you will have to explain for the rest of your life.  Further, if convicted, you will lose your driver’s license, be prohibited from receiving most federal government loan assistance, and you could be sent to jail or prison.  In addition to legal ramifications, your career and community reputation can be affected.

Whatever charges you face, we are here to protect your rights and provide an effective, aggressive defense.  Among the important things we consider in every case are:

  • Admissibility of the state’s evidence
  • The client’s eligibility for a diversion program
  • The client’s eligibility for alternative sentencing
  • Necessity of a trial
  • Avoidance of a permanent criminal record
