Drug Possession / Drug Trafficking

Every drug case whether it be for personal use, manufacture, delivery or possession with intent to deliver is initiated with a car stop, pedestrian stop and/or search of your home, car or personal items.

These stops and searches often result in the seizure of drugs, money, paraphernalia and other evidence the police will use in court.

If you are found guilty of a drug possession crime in Pennsylvania, the penalties can be quite harsh: long jail sentences, large fines, license suspensions and a permanent criminal record. State and federal authorities can be especially vigorous in prosecuting drug violations, even at the expense of an individual's constitutional rights. You will need the services of an attorney who will be equally as vigorous in defending your rights. Michael Parlow of Gallant & Parlow, P.C. is dedicated to representing the interests of clients facing a variety of felony and misdemeanor drug charges in Pennsylvania and federal courts.


Protecting your constitutional rights is central to our drug crimes practice.

Michael Parlow has successfully defended thousands of individuals charged with possession of drugs for personal use, manufacturing drugs, selling drugs and individuals who happen to be in a car or home where drugs are found.


This motion should be filed in every drug case. This motion is successfully used in court to prevent the police and district attorney from using the evidence collected from their illegal stop, seizure, search and arrest.

confessions; drugs; paraphernalia; pictures; growing material ;scales; owe sheets; firearms; anonymous tips; confidential informants
