Utah Drug Charge Defense Attorney
Utah drug laws are notoriously tough. If you have been charged with drug possession, drug distribution or another drug crime, it can seem like you have no other option but to plead guilty. But even if drugs were found on your person, in your car or in your home, it may still be possible to suppress that evidence and obtain a dismissal of the charges.
I have extensive experience in drug cases. I understand the various defenses that are possible, and will fight for your rights and freedom.
Defending the Rights of Utah Residents
I defend people accused of all types of drug charges:
- Possession of a controlled substance
- Possession with intent to distribute
- Production of a controlled substance
- Drug Paraphernalia
- Forge or Altering a prescription
- Doctor Shopping
- Counterfeit Controlled Substances
- Illegal possession of prescription drug
- DUI drug
- Juvenile Drug Charges
- DCFS & Drug Charges
- Controlled Substances: I have experience in cases involving virtually every type of controlled substance, including marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, ecstasy, steroids and prescription painkillers.
- Enhanced Drug Charges: Sometimes the prosecution will enhance the charges against you increasing the potential penalties that can be imposed if you are convicted. It is crucial in any defense that any enhancements are challenged.
- Drug Charge Penalties: A drug charge conviction can result in a maximum sentence of prison to a minimum penalty of fine and counseling.
- Driver’s License Suspension: Drug charge convictions can result in six month drivers license suspension even if the violation did not involve a motor vehicle. Drug charge convictions can also result in suspension of professional licenses.
- Seizure, Forfeiture, Property Rights: Drug Charge Convictions subject defendants to seizure and forfeiture in accordance with the procedures and substantive protections of Utah Uniform Forfeiture Procedures Act. This means that defendant’s car, land, house, belongings, and money can be seized by the State of Utah, or the Federal Government.

Protecting Your Constitutional Rights
For some, the Fourth Amendment is just a technicality. But for Attorney Nebeker your constitutional rights define what America is all about. He works tirelessly to protect his clients’ rights and uses all possible constitutional defenses when representing people accused of drug crimes.
He will carefully examine the events leading to your arrest, including the validity of search warrants and wiretaps, the procedures used by undercover agents, and other search and seizure issues. If it can be shown that the evidence against you was illegally obtained, the charge could be dismissed entirely. He has extensive trial experience and if a trial is necessary, he will use his advocacy skills to protect your rights and seek the best possible outcome for you.
