Ohio Courts Take Drug Possession Charges Seriously. So Do We.
Have you been accused of drug possession? If you are convicted, you could face fines, incarceration and a mark on your criminal record, along with other major repercussions.
Do not underestimate the severity of these charges. Since 1992, the Kelly Law Office, in Columbus, has been defending against charges of drug possession of all types of drugs, including:
- Prescription drugs
We also defend against charges of illegal drug paraphernalia possession, including possession of marijuana and crack pipes. In some cases, possession of paraphernalia charges are more serious than charges associated with possession of the drug itself. These charges are serious and result in grave consequences.

Never Assume That Any Drug Possession Charge Is Minor
Many people believe that certain charges are not serious. For example, people often decide that marijuana possession charges are drug charges that are not worth fighting. This is a mistake. While it is true that these charges are relatively minor, a conviction can still have a serious impact on your life. Your driver’s license can be suspended even if you weren’t in your car at the time of your arrest.
Possession of prescription drugs (without a prescription) and prescription drug fraud are serious charges. In fact, for many prescription drugs, possession of even one pill is a felony. A separate felony can be charged for each additional pill, meaning that a person caught with five pills faces five felony charges. Whether you have been accused of marijuana possession, prescription drug possession or any other drug possession charge, we can help.
