Defending Drugs Charges in State or Federal Court
A drug charge is a serious one that can create a criminal record where there was none. A drug charge can get you kicked out of college or fired from your job. A conviction can follow you for decades. For serious drug charges, you need a serious Iowa City drug crime defense attorney.
At Foster Law Office, we have defended individuals charged with drug possession or drug trafficking in state or federal court. At our law office we represent individuals charged with:
- Misdemeanor possession
- Felony possession
- Drug trafficking of marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, psilocybin mushrooms, heroin or other drugs
- Drug possession or trafficking of controlled substances and prescription drugs
- Drug manufacturing (meth labs)
When charged with a drug crime, particularly drug trafficking, most defendants will be faced with an immediate decision as to whether or not to cooperate with law enforcement. For example, a Mexico/Iowa/West Coast meth lab and trafficking operation was discovered and several individuals were charged. Those who cooperated fared better than those who did not.

- Challenge any potential constitutional search and seizure issues
- Work toward results that help our clients move on without a criminal record
