Drug Court

Drug offenses are some of the most commonly pursued charges in the United Stated as a whole and in the State of Florida. Florida pioneered the concept of courts who handle drug offenses specifically in 1989. Presently, there are 95 such courts in operation in the state.

The Role of Drug Courts

Drug courts exist in order to lessen the strain on regular criminal courts and ensure that those charged with drug offenses can be provided with opportunities to reintegrate with society after they have served their sentence. The goal of drug courts is to use the resources at their disposal to reduce recidivism rates among those convicted of drug offenses in Florida.

What Services Do Drug Courts Offer?

Drug courts in Broward County and the State of Florida offer a variety of services designed to reduce recidivism.

These services include:

  • Drug and alcohol testing
  • Educational material
  • Integration and referral to appropriate drug and alcohol treatment
  • Ongoing monitoring to ensure effectiveness and compliance

Client Reviews
I found myself in an unfortunate situation. A fried gave me evan' s personal number and we spoke for over an hour. I felt so reassured and grateful for his time. Needless to say I write this review with great pleasure. A call to thank evan would not be justified as I want anyone who ever finds themselves in my situation to know who to call. Thank you evan I cannot say enough good things about you. Edwin
I was arrested wrongfully and the police would not listen to my story. Evan contacted the state attorney and got all the charges dismissed. I was in danger of losing my job but thankfully Evan and his staff did am amazing job.
