The Savvy Drug Lawyers of Kurtz & Blum Discuss Fighting Charges Involving a Multitude of Controlled Substances
The war against drugs has cost more of our personal freedoms and liberties than any other aspect of the law. Laws have been made to make it easier to stop people and search them. If you have been arrested or charged with a drug crime, you need to know that you have constitutional guarantees against unlawful searches and seizures. Contact Kurtz & Blum, PLLC, for immediate representation.
At Kurtz & Blum, PLLC, our North Carolina drug crimes lawyers have extensive experience in criminal defense. We focus carefully on the practice of criminal defense. Even if the state has a strong case against you, we will work hard to either prevent a drug crime conviction from staining your record or, if need be, to prevent the more serious consequences of jail or prison time.
Our attorneys will examine all evidence and will listen to you. We will then advise you as to whether accepting a plea deal or going to trial would be in your best interest. We will fight fiercely for you at trial and expose any weaknesses in the prosecution’s case. We always examine the legality of a stop by officers, whether there was probable cause to arrest and if the state has sufficient evidence to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
We have successfully defended clients against all types of drug crimes including:
- Drug possession (marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, Oxycodone / Oxycontin, ecstasy and psilocybin / mushrooms)
- Intent to sell/distribute controlled substances
- Sale and delivery narcotics / drugs
- Manufacturing controlled substances

Howard A. Kurtz, Partner
Ever since the government declared a war on drugs in the mid-1980s, the number of Americans in prison for nonviolent offenses has skyrocketed while our protections from warrantless search and seizure have been steadily eroded. If you've been charged with a drug offense, it likely feels like you are in the government's crosshairs.
The question that we are most frequently asked by people facing drug charges is whether they need a lawyer at all. The fact is that attempting to handle your own drug charge could be the mistake of a lifetime. Drug convictions can follow you around forever, yet people make the mistake of representing themselves all the time. Common misconceptions that people have include the belief that if drugs were not found on your person you cannot be convicted for them, that if a police officer is asked if he is a police officer they have to answer honestly and the police have to read you your rights or else your charge will be dismissed. None of these things are true, but people believe them anyway. These are great examples of how inaccurate information can be more harmful than no information at all.
