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.

Drug Crime Classifications
Drug crimes are classified into five categories. They are first- through fifth-degree drug possession, with first-degree drug possession having the toughest penalties and fifth-degree drug possession having the least harsh penalties. 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.

Second degree can result in 25 years in prison and up to $500,000 in fines. Third degree can result in up to 20 years in prison and $250,000 in fines.

I don’t know how to go about thanking you for helping me through the toughest time of my life. I never thought someone like me would have to face allegations like these. This was terrible. Me and my daughter would love for you to know how much we appreciate all that you do. I wish there were more people like you. Thank you and your staff for all you have done to help (I will never forget this). You’ve won our hearts.
Words cannot express how grateful I am to you John! You made a very stressful situation sooo much easier for me and I will never forget your kindness and generosity. I give you all the credit for saving my sanity throughout this nightmare. I will keep my promise and send all of my “troubled” friends your way too – you are without a doubt a very talented attorney. Thank you – Thank you – Thank you!
Thank you for all you have done for me this past year! I know you’ve “got my back” and I would like you to know how much I appreciate you going above and beyond as my attorney and friend. You are THE BEST and I let people know.
I can’t thank you enough for all you did to give me such a favorable outcome to my legal challenges. You are a miracle worker! You are appreciated by my family and friends and me (of course) for all you did.
This letter is to thank you for representation that was above and beyond what we expected to receive. You are a clever, extremely professional, comforting individual and always kept us informed during the process. It was apparent to me that you care about the outcome as much as we did. Your style of representation was impeccable, classy, and cleverly executed throughout every facet of the case. We were proud to have you as our lawyer. We felt comforted by your portrayal of experience and knowledge. You were protective, well-prepared, thorough, convincing, and always accurate. I could see the others had respect for you and what you had to say. John did everything he promised and more. He comforted us when we were worried, and fought hard for us. He was our friend. I would recommend anyone to John. John is truly a terrific person and attorney. Thanks for excellent representation. Sincerely yours.
Just a note John to thank you again for your work and your great presentation in court. I liked you the first time we met back in July and I think you’re great. I can feel in my heart that you like to help people as you helped me. Thanks again John and Bless you!
Thank you so much for all your help. …It meant so much to me at such a time in my life! You made things so much easier for me and made me feel a lot better with my situation.
I cannot thank you enough for the fantastic representation and support you gave me during my case. The resolution was way better than I could have ever hoped for. You got the court to see me as a person, not a charge, and that was crucial. Thanks again for everything. I really appreciate it!
I cannot tell you enough how much I appreciate your support and friendship through one of the toughest ordeals in my life. There is not a moment that goes by in the last week that I don’t think about how great you did at the jury trial… I will recommend your great service to everyone I come in contact with that may need you! My kids thank you too.
Thank you for all your efforts over the past few months. Your expertise and the way you treated me and the case was much appreciated! I can now move forward after the mistakes I have made. Best wishes to you and your practice.
