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. Federal drug laws are even more harsh, frequently requiring mandatory prison sentences. 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.
We 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, Attorney J. Dean Keegan worked as a probation officer. He has presented at conferences on drug recognition protocols and related topics. He is well-known in eastern Iowa courts for his thorough, skillful, and aggressive criminal defense.
