Columbia Drug Crime Defense Attorney And Former Prosecutor

Drug charges are often more complicated than they first appear. The allegations against you do not tell the whole story. The criminal justice system affords you the opportunity to challenge the charges — yet this opportunity is worth little if you do not take steps to exercise your rights in a strategic manner.

Benefit From An Insider's Perspective On State And Federal Charges

At The Law Office of A. Randolph Hough P.A. in Columbia, South Carolina, we leverage every opportunity to work toward the best possible outcome on behalf of clients facing drug crimes. Our attorney, A. Randolph "Randy" Hough, offers the advantage of an insider's perspective. As a former prosecutor and Special Assistant U.S. Attorney assigned to federal drug cases, he possesses the valuable ability to view state and federal drug charges from all angles.

Lawyer Randy Hough has handled hundreds of drug cases over the course of his 22-year career, including charges such as:

  • Simple drug possession

We represent clients from all walks of life, including college students facing drug charges and the serious school disciplinary measures that often accompany these charges.

Casting Your Case In Human Terms

At various stages throughout the court process, much of the battle takes place beneath the surface of the allegations. Your attorney must cast your case in favorable human terms. The prosecutor may work hard to depict you as a serious offender and perhaps even a danger to the community. Our job may be to paint a more nuanced picture, demonstrating that you are a regular person who perhaps has a problem — just like members of the jury.

Of course, every case is different, and we will tailor our approach to fit your situation. You can count on us to explore every avenue for pursuing the best possible outcome — whether that means pushing for dismissal, negotiating reduced charges, applying for a diversion program or challenging the charges at trial.
