Federal and state laws in Utah make it a crime to knowingly possess controlled substances such as cocaine, “club drugs,” heroin, methamphetamine, marijuana, and LSD and certain prescription drugs.
A controlled substance is generally defined as a drug or chemical whose manufacture, possession, or use is regulated by the government. They are substances that are subject to legislative control and may include illegal drugs and prescription medications.
Drug possession and distribution cases are serious. Attorney Brett C. Anderson (himself a former prosecutor in the State of Utah) understands the common mistakes police officers make during traffic stops and home and car searches and seizures. He has been handling drug cases for over 20 years. He has earned the reputation as an attorney who fights aggressively to make sure that his clients' rights are protected and that they get the best possible results in their case. He understands that his clients simply want to have their charges handled properly so that they can quickly put the matter behind them and move forward in their lives, and he makes this his main goal when he takes their case.
