Possession of Cocaine or Controlled Substance

Under Florida Statute Section 893.13, Possession of Cocaine or Other Controlled Substance occurs if a person is unlawfully in actual or constructive possession of a controlled substance and knows of the presence of the controlled substance.

In Jacksonville, Florida, many substances can qualify as a controlled substance.  Some of the most popular are Cocaine, Ecstasy, Hydrocodone, Oxycodone, and Xanax.  In order to be in possession of a controlled substance, you must have some type of control or management over the drug.  This is the prosecutor's burden to prove.  This may be difficult for the prosecution to prove in drug cases that involve constructive possession of a controlled substance.  This is just one defense that may apply in you case.

If you have been arrested for Possession of a Controlled Substance in Jacksonville, Duval County, Florida or the surrounding counties, speak with a Jacksonville Drug Crime Attorney that can review all of your defenses with you.  A Jacksonville Drug Crime Lawyer has experience with trafficking cases and will represent you to the fullest.  Contact our Jacksonville Criminal Defense Lawyers by email or by calling 904-685-1200.

Client Reviews
After years of trying to protect my assets from creditors, I was shocked to find out that my assets were unprotected in ways I had never considered. Not only had I placed my assets at risk from my mother's creditors, but I had placed my assets at risk from other family members who were intent on manipulation. When my mother died, I discovered that a family member had changed my mother's estate planning documents. Mr. Goldman and his team were able to explain what went wrong and successfully defended my position in court. During the case, I learned that I could have had much better protection from family and creditors, thus avoiding years of litigation and undue familial stress. When it comes to protecting your assets and your family, I would highly recommend hiring Mr. Goldman and his team. Bill H.
As a real estate agent, I have been involved with many property transactions where I needed a probate attorney to help facilitate the transaction. I have used the services of Mr. Goldman and his staff over the last several years and continue to use them on a regular basis. His office has been able to navigate the court system and help estates sell their property quickly and efficiently. In addition, Mr. Goldman can help real estate investors structure trusts to protect their assets from creditors. Michael Starling
This office is fantastic. I was faced with a horrible situation and this office helped to put an end to the untenable situation. Ms. Kendal Schoepfer was always available before, during, and after office hours to answer any questions that I had. I highly recommend this law office to all. Tisha Brown
