Drug Crimes Defense Attorneys
In a drug case, it is important to ensure that you are not charged for a crime you did not commit. For example, people are sometimes charged with intent to distribute a controlled substance simply because they had a certain amount in their possession. Without a criminal defense attorney to protect their rights, defendants have little chance of convincing the prosecution or judge that they should not be charged with the greater offense.
At Johns, Mitchell, Duncan & Lowe, L.L.C., we work hard to protect clients from overzealous prosecutors and law enforcement officers. State and federal governments are under considerable pressure to arrest and convict drug offenders, but they must not violate a person’s constitutional rights in the process. With our help, your rights will be protected.
From our office in Clinton, we represent people throughout western Missouri. Please call 660-885-6161 or 800-847-6119 for a free consultation with a drug crimes defense lawyer.
Aggressive Defense Against Drug Charges
Our attorneys have experience with cases involving all types of controlled substances such as prescription drugs, meth, marijuana, cocaine and heroin. We can defend you against misdemeanor and felony drug charges, including:
- Possession with intent to distribute
- Drug trafficking
- Manufacturing or cultivation
Our investigation of the case will include a review of the evidence and police procedure. If the police did not have probable cause to stop you or search you, your home or vehicle, they may have committed illegal search and seizure. This is a violation of your constitutional rights and may result in the suppression of illegally obtained evidence.
As skilled, experienced trial lawyers, we fight the prosecution’s case at every step. When possible, we argue for the dismissal of the charges. If this is not possible, we will work hard to reduce the charges and minimize the penalties. For first offenders who commit a nonviolent offense, we often negotiate for drug court or another diversionary program instead of a jail sentence.
