Felony Drug Crimes Attorney – Zealous Advocacy When You Need It Most
It is important that you speak with a skilled felony drug crimes defense attorney as soon as you are charged to fight the charges. I am Joseph Vogel, and I aggressively fight to protect the rights of individuals throughout Iowa who are facing felony drug charges. I will immediately work to investigate your case, work with prosecutors and deliver the best possible outcome in the matter.
A wide range of drug offenses can be charged as a felony, including possession with intent to deliver, distribution and manufacturing. Law enforcement will also look at the type of substance and the quantity involved. Any offenses involving meth result in accelerated charges. Other circumstances, such as crossing state lines, can move the charges to federal court, resulting in even more severe sentencing guidelines.
It is important that you seek legal representation as soon as you are charged. I will work with prosecutors and judges to minimize the charges, based on the circumstances of your arrest and other factors involved. For instance, if you have been charged with possession with intent to sell, we will work to demonstrate that you were not ever intending to sell the substance. This could cause the charges to be dropped to a misdemeanor personal use offense.
I am experienced in handling felony drug offenses and understand what must be done to achieve the best possible outcome. Throughout the case, I will ensure that you understand all of your options and any risks associated with those options, allowing you to make the decisions in your case that are in your best interests.
