I am attorney Eric Anderson. My career experience as a public defender informed my approach to criminal defense in private practice. I have seen how one mark on a criminal record can set people on a challenging course. As your defense lawyer, I will not approach your case from a place of judgment. I am here to be helpful and to protect your rights in the criminal justice system.

The drug charge you face does not have to define you. I am here to make sure your rights are protected and you have every opportunity possible at a bright future.Contact me, attorney Eric Anderson at Anderson Defense to discuss your case.


It is commonly understood that marijuana, heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine and other illicit drugs are classified as controlled substances in the criminal justice system. Not everyone knows, however, that you do not have to be in possession of a controlled substance to be charged with a drug crime. Even possession of drug paraphernalia or the components to manufacture drugs can also result in a criminal charge. Even prescription medication can lead to trouble if you do not personally have a prescription for the amount in your possession.


Remember that law enforcement and prosecutors are not truly interested in making deals with you. They are interested in gathering information to incriminate you. You will give yourself a better opportunity for strong defense if you retain counsel early in your case. If you think you may be under investigation, I can promptly step in to advise you of your rights and develop a legal strategy that mitigates the criminal consequences ahead.
