We Handle All Types of Dunedin, Florida, Drug Crime Cases
Goldman Wetzel takes on all types of Dunedin drug crime cases. If the police arrested you for a drug-related offense, we can fight for a more favorable outcome for you.
Our two principal attorneys work together on every case. This means we can work faster and more aggressively, and with the viewpoint of both a prosecutor and a career defense attorney. This is possible because Summer Goldman began her career working in the State Attorney’s office while Maribeth Wetzel is a career defense attorney. When you hire one of our lawyers, you get the knowledge and experience of both.
Together, the lawyers from Goldman Wetzel can handle any drug crime case, including:
- Drug paraphernalia
- Drug possession
- Drug manufacturing and/or cultivation
- Drug trafficking
- Drug dealing
- Misdemeanor and felony crimes
- Juvenile charges
- Federal crimes

Our team can quickly evaluate your case, gathering facts about your circumstances and explaining your options. If you need us to, we can go to work for you immediately. We will accompany you to an interrogation to ensure your rights remain protected or represent you during your arraignment.
The Consequences of Drug Crime in Dunedin, FL, Can Be Significant
Drug crimes and their respective sentences can vary widely, but many are significant. Our team seeks to prevent, eliminate, or reduce the charges against you or fight a conviction to help you avoid the serious consequences associated with many drug crimes. You do not want to try to battle this on your own. We know what it takes to beat a Florida drug crime charge and win a more favorable outcome.
If prosecutors build a strong case against you and you face a drug crime conviction in Dunedin or elsewhere in Pinellas County, Florida, the Judge could sentence you to:
- Time in a state prison or county jail
- Community service
- Mandated time in a drug or alcohol education or rehabilitation program
Police charge some drug crimes as felonies, and a conviction of one of these offenses often comes with a particularly rough sentence. You will need to explain to all potential employers, landlords, and others why there is a felony drug crime on your permanent criminal record.
We Can Build a Strong Defense Strategy in Your Dunedin Drug Crimes Case
No matter what type of drug crime you stand accused of, you must take it seriously. The consequences of not aggressively fighting the charges are too great. We always build a strong defense strategy based on the facts of your case and the circumstances of your arrest, pursuing a more favorable outcome in your case.
This could include:
- Presenting evidence that stops the State Attorney from pursuing charges
- Convincing the Court or the State Attorney to drop the charges using strong evidence to show your innocence
- Taking your case to court and arguing for an acquittal
- Negotiating a plea deal to reduce the charges against you and agree to a guilty plea with a comparatively minor sentence
- Working on a deal to probate your sentence or a portion of your sentence
Our team investigates every case, identifying, collecting, and analyzing the evidence to prove the allegations against you are false. We use what we learn to build a strong defense, arguing to clear your name. Even in cases when this is not possible, we are often able to reduce the charges against you or work toward a probated sentence where you serve a period of probation instead of jail time.
Once we understand your case, we can sit down and discuss what a more favorable outcome might look like for you. This will allow you to voice your preferences and better understand the possible results in your case. Our team is always available to answer your questions or address any concerns you have about your case.
