Protecting Your Rights & Future

Unlike for misdemeanor drug offenses, such as marijuana possession, the sentencing guidelines for felony drug crimes in Iowa carry lengthy jail terms and significant fines. Federal convictions for drug crimes carry lengthy prison sentences and have harsh mandatory minimum penalties.

We defend those accused of felony offenses in both State and Federal Courts such as:

  • Possession with intent to deliver large quantities of controlled substances
  • Cultivation of controlled substances like marijuana
  • Drug manufacturing
  • Distributing drugs to minors under 18
  • Widespread drug distribution/trafficking
  • Conspiracy to commit drug offenses

At Keegan, Tindal & Jaeger, we understand how high the stakes are. We thoroughly investigate the evidence against you, checking for things like illegal search and seizure of property or whether your rights were upheld during arrest. We then take this to court to fight for your rights and a reduction in charges, if not outright dismissal.

We have what it takes to protect your interests against serious felonies. Call our office in Cedar Rapids or Iowa City to set up a free initial consultation with one of our attorneys.
