Drug Possession And Trafficking

St. Louis Defense Attorneys Handling Drug Possession Cases

Drug possession charges can be made even more serious if the prosecution upgrades the offense to allege trafficking, distribution or manufacturing. At Richard H. Sindel, Inc., our St. Louis defense lawyers have the experience to mount a strong criminal defense against these kinds of charges. We can help you in both federal and state court matters. We will fight to preserve your right to be free from illegal and unconstitutional searches and make sure that the evidence is suppressed and that your rights are protected.

Vigorous Defense Against Drug Trafficking Charges

Typically, people often think of drug traffickers as big-time drug kingpins. The fact is, the mere possession of a relatively small amount of illegal drugs, such as methamphetamine, can lead to a charge of trafficking. Our Missouri criminal defense attorneys have defended clients in a number of drug possession and trafficking cases, including those involving:

  • Possession, distribution or trafficking of marijuana, heroin, cocaine and crack
  • Manufacture of methamphetamine
  • Distribution or use of prescription drugs such as Vicodin, Percocet, OxyContin, oxycodone, Adderall and Ritalin
  • Continuing Criminal Enterprise

A drug conviction can impact your life in a number of ways. It can lead to problems finding employment or maintaining a residence or affect your opportunities to get licensed as a professional in many fields. Drug crimes should never be treated lightly. It is important to contact a knowledgeable attorney as soon as possible to preserve your rights. We will mount a thorough investigation of all charges to determine if there was an illegal search or an illegal use of wiretaps or informants. Frequently we have discovered that the informant provided false information targeting an innocent person. We will aggressively defend you against all charges in order to reach the best possible outcome.

Dedicated Representation In Federal Court

A drug possession or trafficking charge may involve federal criminal charges in addition to state charges. The lawyers at Richard H. Sindel, Inc., are experienced in handling federal court charges. We have handled a number of cases involving federal crimes, and we understand the unique rules and procedures that are used at this level. When your future is at stake, do not place your freedom in the hands of an inexperienced law firm.
