A Strong Defense For Clients Charged With Drug Offenses
You have much to lose if you are under suspicion of drug possession, distribution, manufacturing, cultivation or trafficking of controlled substances. Besides a criminal record and penalties such as jail time and fines, you may be barred from certain occupations, student loans and security clearances.
If you have been named in an investigation, questioned or arrested, you must take your legal situation very seriously. At KesslerWilliams, our criminal defense attorneys serve people accused of crimes involving illegal substances in the St. Louis metro area in both Missouri and Illinois.
A Prompt And Decisive Strategy May Turn Your Case Around
Even before you go before a prosecutor or judge, you can make a difference in your own drug crime case. You may be able to get your defense underway early in your case by voluntarily entering into drug dependency treatment. If you are a known felony offender, you may be a candidate for the Drug Court Program, with great opportunities to get therapeutic help while avoiding the harshest penalties.
We Want To Help You Reverse Course And Move Toward A Bright Future Once Again
We are ready to fight on your behalf. Are you ready to join in? A trusting attorney-client relationship can go a long way in getting results in your favor if your criminal charges involve:
- Marijuana and/or drug paraphernalia
- Cocaine, heroin, Ecstasy or other “street” narcotics
- Oxycodone or other prescription drugs, including opioids
We are here to answer your questions about illegal drugs and the criminal justice system such as the following:
Can an attorney help me avoid jail time?
We always strive for this outcome for our clients. In fact, we have helped many of them get charges dismissed or reduced. Our defense tactics have helped many avoid jail time altogether and turn their lives around.
What are my rights if I’m arrested for a drug crime?
You have the same rights that anyone accused of a crime has, such as the right to the assumption of your innocence and the right to have an attorney represent you.
Besides the drug treatment strategy described above, what are other common defenses to drug crime charges?
When the police have executed an illegal search without a search warrant to obtain supposed evidence of a drug crime, we bring these unlawful tactics to light. Many of our clients’ charges have been dismissed with this defense strategy.
