Helping you aggressively defend against drug crimes

Drug crimes can range from minor to major offenses, but regardless of the level of severity of the offense it is imperative that defendants become fully aware of their rights and options. Taking the right measures when initiating a defense could significantly impact the future and even freedom of the accused. Taking the time to understand the situation and what defense options are available can be the best way to aggressively defend against drug charges.

Understanding what is considered a controlled substance

When it comes to drug crimes, the type of drug as well as the quality of the supposed drug could greatly impact the penalties a defendant could face. Thus, it is imperative that Iowa residents become fully aware of the charges against them and what criminal defense options they have.

What criminal defense options are available in Iowa?

Being accused of a crime is a difficult predicament to be in. It's not only tough to process, but many individuals in Iowa and elsewhere find it challenging to move forward. No matter the type or severity of crime a person is accused of, it is important to understand that each and every defendant is afforded the right to assert a defense. This not only protects the defendant's rights, but also provides them with the opportunity to reduce or dismiss the criminal charges against them.

Being involved in a car accident is often a scary and overwhelming experience. While many victims are worried about the condition of those involved, others are more concerned about what could happen if it is determined that they caused the crash. In some cases, the nerves of the driver get the best of them, causing them to leave the scene. However, leaving the scene of an accident could result in serious consequences, even criminal charges.

The difference between a simple assault and an aggravated assault

Being accused of a violent crime is a serious matter. These criminal charges can range in severity, meaning that the resulting penalties can also vary. Nonetheless, no matter the severity of the assault charge, defendants should understand the details of the crime, the evidence used against them and what defense opportunities might be available. This could help individuals in Iowa get reduced or even dismissed charges.
