Our firm focuses our law practice on defending people charged with crimes, including the possession and trafficking of drugs and prohibited substances.

Hennenberg, along with attorney Justin C. Withrow, skillfully and vigorously represent our firm's Cleveland-area clients.

Drug Charges In State And Federal Court

Whether the case involves marijuana, cocaine, crack, heroin, meth, prescription drugs or other illegal narcotics, our firm represents clients in Ohio state courts and federal courts charged with:

  • Possession of illegal drugs
  • Drug possession with the intent to distribute
  • Drug trafficking
  • Conspiracy to traffic drugs
  • Illegal manufacture of drugs (including marijuana grow house cases)
  • Illegal possession of prescription drugs (including Percocet, Vicodin, oxycodone, Opana and OxyContin)
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia

When we represent a client accused of a crime, he takes a comprehensive, aggressive and often a team defense approach. We thoroughly research every aspect of the events leading up to the charges and dissect every element of the case. To build a strong defense for his clients, our firm can call upon experts in evidence, police procedure, independent laboratory analysis and other disciplines, including former federal agents and private investigators.

Diversion Rather Than Possible Conviction And Imprisonment

Not all drug-related cases result in conviction or imprisonment. Results depend on a client's criminal history, background and other mitigating factors. Our legal team has successfully negotiated with prosecutors and argued to trial courts that a diversion program or intervention and treatment in lieu of conviction were the appropriate approach for a particular individual. Diversion and intervention programs allow a person to avoid the worst consequences of a drug-related conviction while seeking treatment for drug dependence.
