The Olathe Criminal Defense Lawyer

Avoid a drug related conviction

Regardless of what you’re charged with, drug cases and convictions can carry serious consequences for you and those close to you. From fines to jail time, to probation and finally your criminal record, it is important to find a criminal defense attorney that is willing to address all issues of importance to you.

There are a variety of factors that could affect the ultimate sentence following a drug conviction:
• Criminal history
• Circumstances surrounding the arrest
• Severity level of the drug felony (weight or amount of drugs and/or pills)

Illegal Search?

The prosecutor has the police building his case; find a criminal defense attorney willing to fight your case for you. Issues may arise that would allow for me to file a motion to suppress on your behalf. Contact me so that we can discuss the drug stop and subsequent arrest. While some attorneys will push a plea or diversion on their clients, I will review all of the facts for you and allow for you to make your own decision after you understand the whole case.

Prosecutors know that I pride myself on being a trial lawyer.

Hire a criminal defense attorney that is willing to pull out all of the stops while fighting a felony or misdemeanor drug possession or distribution charge on your behalf.
