Wilmington Drug Crime Defense Lawyers

It comes as an enormous shock to many young people that a puff of marijuana with friends can ruin their lives. Many believe that police are no longer busting kids for marijuana. This is a dangerously wrong belief. If you have a son or daughter who has been arrested for marijuana or any other illegal substance, you must act immediately to arrange for a powerful defense.

Lawyer Thomas S. Hicks is one of North Carolina's leading criminal defense attorneys. He defends people charged with possession, cultivation, manufacture, distribution or trafficking in any of these controlled substances:

  • Marijuana
  • Heroin
  • Cocaine
  • Methamphetamine
  • Hallucinogens
  • Prescription drugs

Tommy Hicks is also current with the latest synthetics and designer drugs, such as bath salts, Ecstasy, DMA and Spice.

Our firm does not approve of drug use. But it is clear that the punishments for these actions far outweigh the damage kids are doing to themselves. Conviction on state or federal drug charges will alter a young person's life plans like nothing else.

It's not necessary to be a drug lord to be charged with trafficking, the most serious drug crime. You merely have to be involved in drug activities that extend beyond the immediate locale. Conviction for trafficking in North Carolina will put you in prison for years.

If you or someone you love has been charged with a drug crime, it is time to get serious. Call drug crimes attorney Thomas S. Hicks at Hicks Law Firm, PLLC, in Wilmington at 910-762-1202. Or email us a brief description.
