Defense Attorney

The Defense Attorney, while remaining in a non-adversarial role with the prosecuting attorney, works with the client to discuss the option of the drug court program and works in the best interest of the client. It is important that the defense attorney assists with the reinforcement of the person’s successful recovery. If the person is failing the program, the attorney should let the person know what they will be facing regarding the criminal charges if they do fail the program.
