Drug Crimes Lawyer Providing Aggressive Defense Of Your Rights
I am attorney Joseph Vogel, and I fight for individuals who have been charged with a drug offense, working tirelessly to minimize the charges and protect the futures of my clients.
The state of Iowa handles drug charges aggressively. You will be charged based on several variables: the circumstances in which you were found with drugs, the quantities of drug you possessed, the types of substances involved, any distribution that occurred or looked like it was going to occur and any prior convictions you have had. Felony charges can be brought against you based on these factors.
Charges could include possession, distribution, possession with intent to sell, cultivation, manufacturing and trafficking.
This can involve any type of drug, including marijuana, cocaine, heroin, Molly or ecstasy. You can also be charged if you are found with a prescription drug for which you don’t have a prescription, such as OxyContin, hydrocodone, Xanax, Valium or painkillers. Iowa has significantly accelerated charges and sentencing for offenses involving meth, particularly manufacturing or distribution.
It is important that you have a lawyer who deeply understands how each offense is charged and how to investigate the circumstances of your arrest to fight to have the charges minimized or dropped. I am experienced in confronting these charges and aggressively advocating to prosecutors and judges on behalf of my clients, delivering the best possible outcome in each situation.
