No Charges in Drug Case, Dane County
Yet another case proving why hiring a lawyer before charges are filed can be instrumental. In this case, law enforcement arrested our client after she overdosed on heroin. A charge alone, regardless of a conviction, would spell the end of the client's career. Attorney Verhoff worked with the client and law enforcement over a series of months in an attempt to convince the police not to file charges but to allow the client to seek treatment instead. Ultimately, police agreed to do so and did not refer the case up for charging. As we tell people, early involvement and intervention by a lawyer is often much more valuable than a win at trial after a charge is issued.
