Suboxone Possession

If you’ve been arrested for possession of Suboxone, you need to seek the advice of an attorney who is experienced in New Hampshire’s drug laws.

And criminal defense lawyer Michael Anzalone is your best choice. He understands that sometimes good people get involved in bad things which result in an arrest. His goal is to help you get your life back on track as rapidly as possible. If this means seeking a lighter _ or reduced _ sentence, he will work hard to make that happen.

Drug Laws

In New Hampshire, law enforcement officials, prosecutors and judges are chipping away at the prescription drug epidemic by using harsh laws to make their point.

Suboxone is made up of buprenorphine _ which is an opioid _ and naloxone. It is a drug used to treat opioid addiction and is not intended for use as a pain medication. Because of the nature of this drug, it can either slow or stop your breathing and can be habit forming. It can be fatal if combines with alcohol, or with other drugs that can cause drowsiness or slow breathing.

This drug should also never be crushed to inhale the powder, inject into a vein or mix into a liquid.

Once you’ve been accused of possession of illegal drugs, the clock starts ticking toward your court date. The legal team at The Anzalone Law Firm will have your best interests in mind as they prepare for your case. Your attorney will want to see all the arrest reports to determine why you were arrested and whether the law enforcement officers went by the book when they stopped your vehicle.

The first thing you should remember after your arrest is that you should never speak to police without your legal representation. Your attorney will want to be by your side when you talk to investigators to make sure you don’t say anything that could harm your case.

A drug arrest can throw your live into turmoil. If you have never been arrested before the judge may go lighter on you, depending on the circumstances of your case. But still, it can be a scary experience.

Your lawyer will work to get a suspended sentence which would allow you to avoid jail time. In that case, especially on a first arrest, the judge would probably just sentence you to probation. You may also be ordered to take part in rehabilitation programs to help you clean up your life.

It’s wise to read up on the state’s statutes, which you can find at RSA 318-B:26.

Even if you don’t serve prison time, you will be knocked for a loop. If you go into rehab, it could mean significant amounts of time away from your job and your family. And it will cost you money.

You may also face losing your job and your driver’s license may be taken away for a period of time.

As soon as you are arrested, make that first phone call to The Anzalone Law Firm and ask for a free consultation with criminal defense attorney Michael Anzalone.

Great lawyer...Professional, organized, caring and effective. Michael is very informative and was always willing to explain the reasons behind what was being done.
