A Drug Crime Defense Lawyer With The Experience To Fight Serious Felony And Misdemeanor Drug Charges

Possession of drugs, drug manufacturing, distribution, dealing and a wide variety of other allegations related to controlled substances may lead to serious charges. In any instance when the government chooses to pursue criminal charges, it is critical for you to work with a smart and aggressive drug crime defense attorney. A defense lawyer works hard to get drug charges dropped, dismissed, or what needs to be done to minimize the ultimate consequences based on a range of circumstances. Each criminal case is fact-specific, and you need to work with a trial attorney who cares about fighting for the most favorable outcome.

There Is No Routine Drug Crime Defense Strategy

Despite the ideas in popular culture to suggest that drug offenses are a thing of the past, law enforcement agencies and prosecutors do pursue drug charges aggressively. An accusation, however, is not proof of guilt. If you, or someone close to you, is under investigation or is facing charges it is critical for you to seek representation from a criminal defense attorney.

Many drug cases result from a routine traffic stop. Notably, routine seems like a word to suggest that because something is routine, there is no hope. That is not necessarily the true situation. Attorney Jessica Koester regularly challenges a wide range of issues in state and federal criminal court. A strong criminal defense may require multiple challenges in pre-trial motions.
