Drug charges are generally initiated when the police or other governmental agency search a person, a home, or a vehicle and discover illegal drugs. These charges can be successfully defended with the safeguards of the Fourth Amendment which protects people against unreasonable searches and seizures.
Acquiring an attorney immediately at the onset of a drug charge is essential in protecting your rights and determining the legality of the search, even when a search warrant is issued. Clint W. Perryman will break down law enforcement’s investigation of your case, including mishandling of evidence, invalid searches or improperly obtained warrants, and questionable information attained through confidential informants.
Clint W. Perryman has excelled at successfully defending cases involving narcotics and drugs such as cocaine, crack cocaine, marijuana, meth, heroin, ecstasy, and prescription drugs. He has successfully protected the rights and freedoms of many clients facing drug charges such as:
- Drug Trafficking or Importation

Attorney Perryman is very familiar with how to challenge these charges and will not be intimidated by what at times can be seemingly overwhelming evidence.
In association with the criminal case, both federal and state governments have the right to seize any lands or assets they believe have been acquired through funding from illegal activity. This is a civil case separate from your criminal case. The police are required to serve a forfeiture notice in this event, which will require immediate attention. Failure to act quickly could result in forfeiting your property. Even if you are acquitted from criminal charges, you could still lose your assets from the civil forfeiture. An experienced criminal attorney can object to the forfeiture notice and assist with any civil forfeiture separate from criminal representation.
