The Right Lawyer For Prescription Drug Crime Charges

With more than 15 years of criminal law experience, Jon Horwitz is well-versed in successful defense strategies for prescription drug crimes. As a former prosecutor, he knows how the state prepares drug crime cases. He also knows how to dismantle those cases to benefit his clients.

He applies his skill and experience in criminal law to a broad range of prescription drug crime charges, including:

  • Illegal possession of prescription drugs such as OxyContin, Percocet, Vicodin, codeine, methadone and Suboxone
  • Possession of prescription drugs with intent to distribute
  • Unauthorized sale and trafficking of prescription drugs
  • Prescription drug fraud and forgery
  • “Doctor shopping”

Intervention In Lieu Of Conviction

In Ohio, some defendants are allowed to serve a period of probation and complete a drug treatment program, instead of facing trial and a criminal conviction. This type of alternative sentencing is typically offered to first-time offenders. If the defendant successfully completes the program, the charges are dropped and capable of being expunged.

We understand that good people can develop substance abuse problems and should not be treated like common criminals. We explore every possible defense strategy, including intervention in lieu of conviction, to help our clients limit the damage of prescription drug crime charges.
