At the Law Offices of Niels C Eriksen Jr, our firm has 15 years experience defending against all types of drug charges, including those involving prescriptions. We represent clients who are in many ways victims themselves: Victims of medical professionals who are quick to prescribe addictive drugs without considering a support system for those who become dependent on the drugs, Victims of a criminal justice system that makes no distinction between a hardened criminal and a valued person who is struggling with addiction, and Victims of addiction who lack the financial means for appropriate treatment and continue an out of control spiral of Theft arrests to support their Addiction.

We develop a strategic approach tailored to the unique facts of your case.
We also take a comprehensive approach to those suffering from Drug Addiction. We work with the Prison system to have our clients evaluated for Drug Treatment Programs, use Bail Hearings to release our clients to Recovery Houses, and help our clients enter many of the diversionary programs available, including Drug Court, Veteran's Court, Youth Offender Programs, ARD Programs, SIP and RRRI programs. Our firm will attack the arrest, and find solutions for Treatment.
