Drug Charges are Serious. Lafayette Attorney Josh Guillory is Ready to Fight for You.
In Lafayette and most other areas of Louisiana, federal and state officials are very serious when it comes to drug-related criminal charges. Prosecutors on both the federal and state level are approaching drug offense cases aggressively.
You or a loved one may be facing a drug charge in Louisiana. Depending on the facts and circumstances, you may have several options available when facing drug charges in Louisiana courts. Whether the case demands a trial to defend against a wrongful arrest, a procedural motion to uphold your Constitutional rights, or detailed guidance in obtaining a fair plea agreement, having a dedicated drug or narcotic defense attorney on your side is the best way to combat against an overzealous prosecutor or an overreaching government official.
Common Louisiana drug charges include:
- Possession of Marijuana
- Possession of Schedule I, II, III, IV, V drugs
- Possession of Cocaine
- Possession of Heroin
- Possession of Ecstasy
- Possession of a Controlled Dangers Substance (CDS)
- Possession with Intent to Distribute
- Possession of a Legend Drug
- Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
Regardless of the drug charge, you need someone in your corner. Attorney Joshua S. Guillory is ready to fight for you. Contact our office today at (337) 233-1303 or click here (hyperlink) to arrange a consultation.

Getting help with an addiction is important. Keeping your defense attorney informed of your treatment is also very important. In our law firm, Attorney Joshua S. Guillory has helped many clients seek help with finding treatment for an addiction while simultaneously providing a legal defense. In other words, getting help for an addiction does NOT hurt your case.
Also, obtaining treatment, while it is a very positive step, does not mean you do not have to go to court. However, courts will often work with you on rescheduling court appearances if you are in an in-patient facility. If you are seeking treatment but are also facing criminal charges, it is very important that you retain the services of a lawyer so that your lawyer can communicate with the Court on your behalf.
