At the Law Office of Priscilla Bush, we begin our representation of you with an immediate and thorough investigation of the police tactics that lead to your arrest. We utilize law enforcement's documents, forensic laboratory mistakes, old fashion detective work and the rules of evidence to break-down the prosecution's case against you. We begin by attacking reasonable suspicion to detain you, probable cause to search your body, your home or your auto and probable cause to arrest you.
Not Guilty at Trial! Possession of a Controlled Substance, Cocaine, with Intent to Distribute: Federal Agents with the D.E.A. and local law enforcement officers in a joint multi-state HIDTA investigation arrested my client, J.D., for possessing 10 kilos of cocaine. The cocaine was found in a truck registered and owned by my client and parked in my client's driveway. Police arrested my client just a few feet away with a loaded gun tucked into the waistband of his pants. J.D. faced a substantial prison sentence and deportation if convicted. I conducted an extensive pre-trial investigation. And at trial, my partner and I fought hard to defend my client. In the end, the jury said the two most beautiful words: Not Guilty!
Case Dismissed! Possession of Controlled Substance, Cocaine: After stopping my client, S.P. on a minor traffic violation, officers arrested her for possession of cocaine. Ms. Bush held the prosecution to their burden to prove the substance was cocaine. When the state couldn't meet their burden, they dismissed the charges.
Case Dismissed! Possession of Dangerous Drug: Officers arrested our client for possession a dangerous drug. We secured a dismissal for our grateful client by proving he had a valid prescription for the medication.
Case Dismissed! Possession of Marijuana: Officers responded to a disturbance complaint and arrested S.M. after a search of her purse revealed marijuana. Ms. Bush challenged the legality of the search and got the case dismissed.
Case Dismissed! Possession of Marijuana: Prosecutors charged my client with possession of marijuana when marijuana was found growing at the residence. Ms. Bush got the case dismissed when she convinced the State they couldn’t prove that her client even knew marijuana was there.
Except in rare instances, the police are required to obtain a warrant, supported by probable cause and signed by a judge, to search your home. As your defense team, we will analyze the affidavit and question the officer's observations that led to obtaining a search warrant. If the officer's sworn account contains false information, we have experience in drafting motions that demonstrate which statements were wrong. We will show the judge that without the false statements, the warrant affidavit is insufficient to establish probable cause. Next, the judge must order a hearing in which we cross-examine the detectives about their reasons for including false information. If we convince the judge that the false information was placed in the affidavit "intentionally or with reckless disregard for the truth," then the judge must suppress all evidence gained under the unlawful search.
The critical issue is whether the police had reasonable suspicion for the initial detention. The police officer must observe you commit a traffic violation or find a combination of factors that lead him to reasonably believe you are committing an offense to stop your car. A mere hunch that you are "up to no good" isn't enough to pull you over.

Serious drug charges often involve money laundering allegations and seizure and forfeiture of your personal property. The government can take your home, your vehicles, your cash, and other assets in connection with serious drug charges.
Asset Forfeiture cases are civil cases. The State’s burden of proof is lower which means it can be easy for the State to take your property. You need an attorney experienced in asset forfeiture cases to protect you from the State sanctioned takings. Attorney Priscilla Bush has handled asset forfeiture cases over the last 15 years and will use this experience to fight for the return of your property.
All Property Returned: Police officers seized over $8,000 in cash from C.S. in connection with the arrest of his son. Attorney Bush secured the return of all the money taken from her client.

Our goal is to have your criminal charge dismissed. We analyze your case looking for the prosecution's weaknesses (mistakes by the police, witness lies, errors of law) and the best way to overcome the prosecutor's evidence.
The prosecution has the burden of proving the charges against you. Don't give them anything they may be able to use against you in a trial. Don't speak to the police or anyone else without an attorney.
