Choosing an Attorney for Drug charges in Amherst NY Drug Court
When it comes to drug charges, we know that there are a number of people out there who believe they can mount their own defense in court. In some cases, it may be because people wish to save money on their criminal defense. In others, it could be because they believe that nobody else will be able to get their story out like they would be able to. Sadly, a vast majority of people who defend themselves in court are likely to fail.
