Fighting Cocaine Charges in Georgia

In Georgia, cocaine, whether as crack or powder, falls under the category of a Schedule II controlled substance. This classification means facing cocaine charges can lead to serious consequences, including a felony record, prison time ranging from 1 to 15 years, and much longer for possession with intent to distribute and trafficking, as well as hefty fines.


At The Nelson Law Group, our depth of knowledge and experience is our cornerstone in defending against criminal charges. From our offices in Evans, Georgia and Putnam County, Georgia, we extend our legal services across Georgia, catering to clients in every county, city, and town.


Our firm has multiple decades of collective experience prosecuting and defending individuals  accused of drug charges, including cocaine-related charges. This experience encompasses both state and federal court levels, equipping us to handle cases of varying degrees of complexity and severity.


We manage a variety of cases, such as:

  • First-time and subsequent cocaine possession charges
  • Charges of possession with intent to distribute, which may arise from the manner in which the drug is packaged, suggesting sale intent even if meant for personal use
  • Drug trafficking accusations, particularly for possession exceeding 28 grams of cocaine
  • Cases involving multiple charges from traffic stops, raids, or sting operations leading to drug-related arrests

Deep Experience and Success in Court Motions, Trials, and Plea Bargaining


If you’re arrested on cocaine possession charges, it’s crucial to remain silent and avoid discussing your case with the police until you’ve consulted with a criminal defense attorney. Ideally, have your lawyer present during any police interactions.


Our attorneys dedicate significant time to understand your priorities and thoroughly investigating your case, checking for any rights violations, including illegal stops and searches. Experienced in crafting and arguing motions to suppress evidence and skilled in both vigorous trial representation and plea negotiation, our aim is to lessen the impact of the charges on our clients.


We fight for you, and we don’t back down. Every criminal charge holds potentially life-altering consequences. We don’t hold back on providing our clients the best possible criminal defense available.  Nearly all the attorneys at The Nelson Law Group are former Assistant District Attorneys, so our unique insight on how the prosecution approaches cases equips us with the ability to see the case from all sides. If you, a family member, or a close friend faces criminal charges, contact The Nelson Law Group today at 706-434-8770 or visit us at 7004 Evans Town Center Blvd., Third Floor, Evans, Georgia 30809 to discuss your unique case and our creative defense strategies with one of our experienced criminal defense attorneys.
