Drug Crimes Defense

Kansas City, Missouri Drug Crime Defense Lawyers

Charged With the Wrong Crime?

In one case, we represented a client who was charged with being part of a drug conspiracy involving millions of dollars' worth of a prescription drugs.

Our client had been accused of laundering money for the scheme, but had no knowledge of or actual involvement with the drugs.

We were able to prove he was not part of the conspiracy, and we obtained a significant reduction from the recommendations of the federal sentencing guidelines — to one day in jail.

You should not be punished for a crime you did not commit. Contact us now for a free consultation.

We Handle Local, State and Federal Drug Crimes

We handle a wide variety of drug offenses involving drugs such as methamphetamines, crack, cocaine, marijuana, Ecstasy, GHB and prescription drugs:

  • Drug possession
  • Drug possession with intent to distribute
  • Sale and distribution of drugs
  • Manufacturing drugs
  • Prescription drug fraud
  • Drug trafficking
  • Drug importation
  • International drug conspiracies
  • Gun crimes charged in connection with drugs

The federal sentencing guidelines for drug offenses are harsh. You need an experienced criminal defense attorney to give you an honest assessment of your case and protect your rights. We will work tirelessly to suppress any evidence that was illegally obtained by police from being used against you in court.

We Want to Help You Solve the Real Problem

Often, people who are charged with drug possession or property crimes related to drug use are not career criminals — merely addicts. Several counties in this area, including Jackson, Clay, Lafayette and Ray, have drug courts that pursue "restorative justice" by helping addicts get free of drugs instead of putting them in jail.

We may be able to help you enter these programs, which are designed to help offenders stop using drugs through intensive treatment and follow-up programs. Often, if you can gain entrance to one of these programs, your case will be dismissed.
