Matt Skinner Offers A Thorough Challenge To The Prosecution

State prosecutors pursue methamphetamine charges vigorously. Individuals can be charged not just for possessing the drug itself, but also for possessing any of the chemical compounds that go into the drug's creation. The authorities' power is broad, and they exercise this power routinely — at times, excessively.

Matt Skinner will investigate every aspect of the charges against you. If the authorities have infringed upon your rights at any point of the process, he will work rigorously to have the allegations dismissed. If there is any weakness in their case, he will find it. Drawing on his experience in the region, he can negotiate with local prosecutors to reduce the charges you face. Yet if it will yield a better outcome, he will be prepared to protect your rights in court.
