A Serious Small Problem And An Even More Serious Larger Problem
At the Law Office of Gerard S. Williams, P.A., we say that a person who has been busted for drugs has two problems: a short-term problem of dealing the arrest, and a bigger problem of addiction that often lasts a very long time. As long as you have the big problem, the smaller problem will keep happening.
We care about our clients, and we work hard to defend them against the criminal charges, but we also encourage them to address the larger problem and change their lives and get clean.
