Put an Experienced Defense Lawyer on Your Side


Being charged with a drug crime is a serious matter. If you are convicted, you will face fines and possibly jail time. In addition, the conviction will remain on your record and may prevent you from getting certain jobs or being granted access to your children in a custody battle.  At Ward & Spires, LLC, we represent people charged with state and federal drug crimes. Attorney Clay Ward is a former prosecutor who understands how drug cases are handled in Georgia. His experience on both sides of drug cases is very valuable. Please call our office at 706-724-2640 to schedule an appointment with an Augusta drug crime attorney. Your consultation is free.

Fighting Drug Charges

Whether you are charged with a misdemeanor or felony drug offense, we have the experience to help you.  We represent people charged with crimes involving marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy, GHB, meth amphetamines, heroin or prescription drugs such as Percocet, Xanax and Vicodin. Our criminal defense practice covers a complete range of drug crimes, including:

  • Possession
  • Sales
  • Distribution
  • Cultivation
  • Trafficking
  • DUI drugs

There are many ways to counter the prosecution's case against you. For example, if the police do not handle a drug case correctly from the beginning, evidence may be suppressed. Police must have probable cause to search a person, car or house. We will examine your arrest and the search and seizure. If the police did not have proper cause to arrest you, we will argue for a dismissal.

Additional issues we can address include the involvement of confidential informants in the buying or selling of drugs that led to your arrest. The number of people charged during your arrest can also be important.  We need to determine if everyone was guilty. In some cases, everyone at a drug bust is arrested, even though the drugs belonged to just one person.
