Drug crimes are often complicated. Often, there is more than meets the eye, and it is easy to feel like nobody will give you the benefit of the doubt. However, you can build a defense that protects your rights and freedom.
At Bird, Stevens & Borgen, P.C., our job is not to judge you but to aggressively fight for you. Our criminal defense attorneys have extensive experience in trial. We know how to present evidence and arguments to the judge or jury in a way that positions you for the best possible outcome.
Drug Possession Charges
Possession charges and their potential penalties depend on the type of drug, the amount of substance and whether there was intent to sell or distribute the drug. A small amount of marijuana, for example, would not carry the same penalties as a large amount of heroin or cocaine. However, every drug charge case places your freedom at risk.
Our Minnesota attorneys can work with you to build an appropriate defense for your case. In some cases, there may be doubt about who really owns the drugs and how it came into your possession. Other cases may call into question whether law enforcement had the right to search your property.
Drug Distribution And Trafficking Charges
Charges of distribution or intent to distribute drugs are typically more serious than possession charges alone. In addition, these cases may involve other charges, such as money laundering. It is essential to speak with an attorney who can respond to the unique factors of your case.
Charges Involving Prescription Drugs
Most people think about illicit substances when they hear the word “drugs,” but the truth is that prescription drugs can also lead to criminal charges. Fraudulent prescriptions, distribution of prescription drugs and other actions could spark a serious problem. In these situations, we can work to protect you.
Driving Under The Influence Of Drugs
Even if you did not drink alcohol, police may arrest you for driving while impaired (DWI) due to medications or other drugs. For more than 30 years, we have stood by our clients during difficult cases. We will stand by you throughout your defense against drugged driving or drugged boating charges.
