Heroin Defense Strategies

Traffic stops that result in drug arrests often stem from minor moving violations. Police typically search a vehicle when they subjectively decide a driver, passengers, or the automobile itself is suspicious. A drug dog is often deployed to detect the presence of narcotics inside.

Attorney Tom Olsen aggressively fights charges that result from unlawful stops and illegal search and seizure. If your rights were violated, he will aggressively pursue dropped charges in your case. With his extensive prosecutorial background and accomplished negotiation skills, he can pursue a deal with prosecutors for reduced charges or a second chance as part of the National Safety Council, Nebraska Diversion Program.
