Drug Offenses

If you have been charged with a drug offense in Iowa, you could be facing jail time, fines and a permanent criminal record. The experienced criminal defense attorneys at Carr Law Firm P.L.C., can help defend you against drug charges in state or federal courts.

We represent people charged with drug offenses including the possession, sale, distribution or possession with the intent to distribute:

  • Marijuana
  • Heroin
  • Methamphetamines
  • Prescription narcotics
  • Other drugs and controlled substances

The type of drug involved affects the severity of the charges you may be facing — for example, offenses involving methamphetamines can lead to more severe penalties than offenses involving marijuana.

How A Lawyer Can Help Fight Your Charges

We are here to protect your rights in any drug offense case. To begin with, we may look into the evidence against you. If it was obtained during an illegal search or seizure, we may be able to suppress that evidence. We may also be able to challenge other elements of the case against you, including whether you were actually in possession of the drugs. Our attorneys are skilled at understanding all aspects of a drug offense case in order to prepare the strongest possible defense for our clients.
