Just Say No

Drug screens aren’t always what they appear. My client, let’s
call him Doug, learned that the hard way. Doug was on probation for a
crime he admitted to doing. Doug was honest with the Court and accepted
responsibility. Doug messed up a few years ago, but was working hard to
right his wrongs and make a better life for himself. However, two weeks
ago Doug tested positive on a random drug screen he was required to give
as a condition of his probation. He immediately went to jail.
After five days, Doug, who was still sitting in jail, hired me to help
him. I informed him that Georgia law requires there to be a hearing within
72 hours of an arrest, and so we got to work immediately.
Knowing Doug was innocent and that drug test was an unfortunate instance
of a false positive reading, the Richman Law Firm took the appropriate
legal action and we were able to get Doug’s charges dismissed.
Another probation violation success story for Richman Law Firm!
