Arrested for a Drug Crime? We Can Help.

Most drug crimes are considered felonies in Minnesota. Our attorneys defend people who have been charged with illegally possessing, selling, or trafficking the following:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine/crack
  • Methamphetamine/meth
  • Heroin
  • Prescription drugs
  • Other controlled substances

Although your situation may seem hopeless, you should know that there are many potential defenses to drug crime charges. We will examine your case and ask critical questions when building your defense: Were you knowingly in possession of the controlled substance? Was illegal search and seizure an issue in your case? These and other questions may help us identify options in your case that may lead to a reduction in charges, alternative sentencing options, or a case dismissal.

Minnesota's controlled substance laws can change quickly, especially in response to new synthetic drugs. To learn more about synthetic drug laws in Minnesota, read our related article.
