Cleveland Drug Defense Attorneys

Because Cleveland, Tennessee, is right on the Interstate 75 corridor, there are countless traffic stops. As a result, drug charges are far from uncommon. When an officer stops someone, it's important to look at several questions to ensure that the rights of those charged are preserved:

  • Did the officer have a valid reason to stop?
  • Was the search warrant legally sufficient?
  • Was the chain of custody properly maintained?

If you or a loved one has been charged with a drug offense, it is important to understand your rights. At Chancey, Kanavos, Love & Painter, we will explain your rights and aggressively pursue a reduced or dismissed charge in your favor.
