Iowa City Lawyers For Marijuana Possession Defense

Experienced Drug Defense In Iowa City, Cedar Rapids And Eastern Iowa

With the recent passage of legislation legalizing marijuana in states such as Colorado and Washington as well as decriminalized and medical marijuana, it may seem like marijuana possession is becoming more "OK" in today's society. However, possession of marijuana and other controlled substances is still illegal in Iowa. If you find yourself charged with drug possession or other drug offenses, you need a skilled criminal defense lawyer to protect your rights and future.

J. Dean Keegan and Thomas D.S. Farnsworth, Attorneys at Law, protects the rights of Iowa citizens and university students charged with various crimes in Eastern Iowa. Call 319-887-6900 to schedule a free initial consultation with them to discuss your defense.

Aggressive Defense Against Drug Possession Charges

Iowa state laws take a tough stance on the possession, sale and distribution of illegal drugs such as marijuana (also known as pot, dope), cocaine (crack) and heroin. Being found with even a small amount of marijuana can be enough to result in jail time and make you lose your license, pay heavy fines or even lose your scholarships or your job.

Our skilled drug defense lawyers fight against these serious consequences to protect your rights and future. J. Dean Keegan and Thomas D.S. Farnsworth each have the extensive trial experience needed to:

  • Thoroughly investigate the evidence against you to determine whether your rights were upheld
  • Challenge and suppress evidence obtained through illegal search and seizure
  • Aggressively protect your rights in court

Prior to becoming a lawyer, Mr. Keegan worked as a probation officer, and he has presented at conferences on drug recognition protocols and related topics. Thomas D.S. Farnsworth worked for the Department of Corrections and the Johnson County prosecutor's office. Both lawyers are well-known in Eastern Iowa courts for their thorough, skillful and aggressive criminal defense.
