If you have been arrested and charged with possession of marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, prescription or another controlled substance, you should seek representation from a St. Louis drug possession attorney. Depending on the drug, how aggressively the court will handle your case varies drastically. Considering the discussions regarding the legalization of marijuana in Missouri, although still currently illegal, prosecutors are more lenient against marijuana-related charges. Compare that to the destructive effect methamphetamine and heroin have on a person’s life; as a result, the court is usually much more aggressive against these possession charges.

At TdD Attorneys at Law, we will examine every aspect of your situation to determine the best defense and outcome possible. Sometimes we work with the prosecutors and court personnel to come to a settlement without the need for a trial. These settlements often have reduced charges and less of a lasting effect on your record and life. If a settlement isn’t an option, our team will investigate the police interaction, witnesses and search procedures at the time of the arrest to provide a zealous defense.
