Prescription Drug Fraud Defense Lawyers

Many people are prescribed a limited amount of prescription painkillers following surgery or a medical procedure. Unfortunately, the number of refills is often insufficient or the patient becomes reliant on the medication. In America today, prescription drug fraud is one of the most prevalent narcotics crimes in our criminal law courts.

Prosecutors in Colorado Front Range jurisdictions are facing heavy pressure to pursue convictions for prescription drug fraud. As college students turn to prescription medication for recreational use or to help them remain alert for studying and class, the number of cases continues to rise.

Being addicted to painkillers is an illness that needs treatment – not a criminal offense. If you are facing prescription fraud charges because of doctor shopping to ease the pain of your addiction, there may be treatment program options available to help you get the help you need, while avoiding a conviction on your record.

If you or your minor-aged college student is facing a misdemeanor or felony charge for illegal possession of prescription medication or prescription drug fraud, talk to an attorney at The Moorhead Law Group.

Our attorney, David Moorhead, has handled hundreds of drug cases, including a significant number of cases involving prescription medications. We know the laws.

David helped my brother resolve a case that was dragging on and on with a public defender within 10 days of me reaching out to him (and got a much better deal for my brother). Worth the money and is very nice to work with!

David Moorhead was a miracle worker. We hired him to finish a case that kept going on and on for years by an overworked public defender. He got it done in days. Not only did he get it done in days, he went beyond what we hired him to do and got a way better agreement than we anticipated. I can’t recommend him enough.

David Moorhead exceeded my expectations. He was very knowledgeable and knew exactly how to manage my case and how to speak to the DA to get the outcome I desired. I was amazed at the outcome of my case. David made it quick, simple and painless. I would recommend him over and over again to anyone needing legal assistance.
