Springfield Drug Crimes Lawyer
Anyone who has been arrested for a drug-related offense or believes that they are under investigation for any charges related to the use, abuse, possession, or distribution of controlled substances, must engage the services of an experienced criminal defense attorney.
The state of Missouri is notorious for aggressively pursuing these types of investigations. Furthermore, the courts severely prosecute those under investigation, leveraging state, and federal laws in the most punitive manner possible, in many cases.
Even a minor offense can, therefore, have life-altering penalties. That’s why we encourage anyone who suspects that they may be under investigation for drug-related charges to contact us for a no-obligation consultation.
If you’ve been arrested, or are under investigation, for a drug-related offense in Springfield, MO, you must have an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side. Drug charges can be life-altering. Twibell Pierson Criminal Law doesn’t see you as “just a number.”
We’re committed to providing you with the best possible outcome. Call us today for a free consultation, at 417-862-1741.
Types of Drug-Related Cases in Missouri
Drug-related charges can vary a great deal, depending on the type of drug involved in the case, the amount of it, and the apparent intent of the defendant. For example, charges may include, but are not limited to:
- Possession with intent
- Sale and distribution of illegal drugs
- Manufacturing controlled substances
Our attorneys can handle any drug-related offense. We also understand that the laws involved may be applied differently, depending on the substance the authorities accuse you of possessing. We have worked on—and won—cases that include a wide variety of substances, including:
- Prescription drugs
We will review the facts of your case. Our team will investigate the circumstances of your arrest, the amount of the substance in question, the precise crime you are being charged with, and more. We’ll also review all the potential penalties if you are found guilty or accept a plea deal so that you understand your situation fully. The penalties might include time served in custody, fines, mandatory counseling or rehabilitation, probation, and other options.
We’ll work with you and with the judge to ensure that your case is handled fairly and that you receive the best possible outcome.
We understand that drug possession cases often aren’t as black and white as prosecutors would like to make them out to be. Whether you’ve been charged with simple possession or participating in drug distribution, you must have a defense lawyer.
Only an experienced attorney fully understands the applicable laws and is fully equipped to fight for your rights. Call Twibell Pierson today, at 417-862-1741.
All Drug Cases are Serious
One misconception we often see among clients is that some types of cases are less “serious” than others. It is true that some charges may have less potential for the most severe penalties, but make no mistake, there is no such thing as a “minor” drug conviction in Missouri. Being convicted of selling as little as five grams of cannabis can result in a felony conviction and up to seven years in prison—whether or not you were guilty of a crime.
Being convicted of possessing more significant amounts of a drug substance may result in losing federal benefits, forfeiting property, paying severe fines, along with serving jail time.
That’s why we heavily stress the need to contact a lawyer as soon as you are arrested or become aware of an investigation. The more time we have to examine your case and prepare your defense, the more likely we are to get you the best possible outcome.
The right drug crimes lawyer can help no matter how serious the charge may seem. Being convicted can have devastating consequences, but a robust defense can help mitigate that—or even get you cleared of all charges.
However, it’s imperative that we start building your case as soon as possible, please call us today at 417-862-1741.
Don’t Risk Your Future
Something as simple as a misdemeanor drug charge, or even an infraction involving paraphernalia, can have a significant effect on your future. A conviction can disqualify you from career opportunities and other programs. It is critical to consider your future, and we can help you protect it.
Don’t gamble your future on a drug conviction. Our attorneys are standing by to help you get the best possible outcome. A felony drug charge can disrupt your life for years, resulting in time spent in jail or even prison. It’s not worth the risk. Call us today and engage the services of an experienced attorney who specializes in drug and drug-related charges.
