The Stakes Are High

A drug crime conviction can affect your life for years to come. You can have great difficulty finding a job, housing, even getting financial aid to go to college!

Are There Options Other Than Jail Or Prison In Drug Cases?
Our attorneys at Katzman, Beck & Thom, P.C. will press every angle to get you an alternative to traditional drug sentencing. Some jurisdictions, such as Colorado Springs, have a drug court. In other locations, drug cases go to the main criminal court. In many cases, people charged with drug possession or first offenses can be sentenced to a Drug Court or a diversion program, which may require a drug evaluation, drug treatment, random drug testing, and frequent court appearances. These programs stress rehabilitation over convictions. Our attorneys can negotiate with the DA on your behalf, and many times on first or minor offense, if you participate in diversion you could avoid having a drug conviction on your record.
