Lexington Drug Crime Attorney
Drug charges should never be taken lightly. If you were arrested for allegedly committing a crime related to illegal drugs, you should call a lawyer. In Missouri, if police arrest you for possessing anything other than less than 35 grams of marijuana, you will face felony charges, which will likely mean prison, probation and fines if you are convicted.
With methamphetamine use continuing to be a problem throughout our region, the punishments for drug convictions are only likely to get more severe. At Burt Harriman, Attorney at Law, LLC, we know how to thoroughly investigate the drug charges you are facing and what is necessary to get a positive result and minimize the negative effects of the charges.
Experienced Attorneys Helping Excelsior Springs Residents Fight Drug Charges
If you come to our law firm in Lexington, Missouri, for a consultation, we can try to determine:
- The legality of the search and seizure. Police have an obligation to respect your constitutional rights.
- If police held you longer than was reasonable during a traffic stop that allegedly yielded a drug seizure.
- If police had a valid search warrant when conducting a raid on your residence.
Meth is popular in our region, and a lot of drug trafficking occurs on Interstate 70. Prosecutors will use every tool at their disposal to bump up the charges against you to attempt to convict you of manufacturing, selling or possession with the intent to distribute. The charges will be even worse if you are close to a school zone, public park or public housing.
As your lawyers, we will fight hard to protect your rights, but it is important that you do not speak with police without a lawyer present. We will investigate the claims, gather evidence and aggressively represent you in court.
