Minneapolis Drug Defense Lawyer
There are many factors that can lead to case dismissal, but that only happens when a smart, aggressive and experienced drug defense lawyer relentlessly pursues every angle and fights at every stage for your justice. That is what we do.
Minneapolis Drug Crime Attorney
There are many types of drug charges. Some of the most common charges that a drug crime attorney fights involve:
- Crack cocaine
- Prescription drugs
- Drug manufacturing
- Drug sales and distribution
- Money laundering
- Drug-related wire fraud
- Interstate transport of narcotics
Being in possession of any of these drugs can result in very serious charges involving possession, possession with the intent to sell, drug trafficking, drug possession and sale, possession of items used to produce narcotics, and drug crimes involving vulnerable adults or children.
If the charges involve drug manufacturing, that is a very serious crime that can lead to a lengthy prison sentence.

What a person is charged with depends on the amount of the drug and what he or she was doing with the drug when caught.
