Aggressive, Skillful and Experienced Defense

Don't face possible loss of student financial aid alone

For decades now, Iowa police have been focusing much of their law enforcement efforts on drug use and drug trafficking. The War on Drugs was undertaken with the goal of reducing drug use. During this war, many people have faced the legal consequences of a drug conviction. These consequences can include imprisonment, probation, fines and other penalties. They can also include some other consequences that may not come to mind immediately for most people.

Last month, we wrote briefly on one of these consequences: loss of student loan eligibility. Depending on the circumstances, a student could lose federal student loan eligibility if they are convicted of a drug-related offense. It's usually possible to regain eligibility after some effort, but a student's academic progress could be delayed. This could be problematic for students at the University of Iowa, Coe College, Cornell College and other area schools.

Given the serious consequences, it may be very worthwhile for a college student to put up a robust defense to any drug charges they may be facing. Experienced drug offense attorneys can be helpful resources for anyone looking to fight drug charges. J. Dean Keegan, Eric D. Tindal & Andrea Mason Attorneys at Law have the kind of experience that defendants are looking for. They have successfully handled defense cases for people facing charges of possession or delivery of marijuana, cocaine, crack cocaine or methamphetamine; possession of pseudoephedrine; felony possession; and prescription drug offenses. They also have helped defendants fight driver's license sanctions after a drug conviction.

We work closely with our clients to develop a tailor-made defense strategy; and we can meet with potential clients in a free initial consultation. We can be reached by phone or email. Our website's drug offenses page has more information on the services we provide.
