Avoiding The Lifelong Consequences Of A Drug Crime Conviction
A drug charge can leave you with a criminal record. 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 and drug trafficking in state and federal court. We are committed to protecting our clients’ futures, representing individuals charged with:
- Misdemeanor possession
- Felony possession
- Drug trafficking of marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, psilocybin mushrooms, heroin and other drugs
- Drug possession and trafficking of controlled substances and prescription drugs
- Drug manufacturing (meth labs)
When charged with a drug crime, particularly drug trafficking, most defendants must decide immediately whether 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.
Defending Students Charged With Drug Crimes
Iowa City is home to several colleges and universities. Campus security and local law enforcement take drug use among college students seriously.
Drug delivery, an important part of a drug trafficking charge, can result from sharing a joint with a friend. Money need not change hands.
Foster Law Office helps students who are caught in their dorm rooms with drugs. We not only represent the student in court, but we also accompany him or her to meetings with the dean of students and work to prevent sanctions from the college or university. At our law firm, we will:
- Challenge any potential constitutional search and seizure issues
- Work toward results that help our clients move on without a criminal record
Prescription Drug Cases
Our lawyers provide a vigorous defense for those charged with illegal possession or trafficking with prescription drugs, including:
Police and law enforcement tactics change as the legal defenses change. It is important to stay current with the law as well as with police procedures. For example, we are noticing that law enforcement is choosing to obtain search warrants more often, which prevents an additional challenge as well as opportunity for criminal defense.
