Felony Drug Charges & Misdemeanor Drug Charges

Whether you were pulled over and the cops found some pot on you or your room was searched and drug paraphernalia was confiscated by the police, you need to talk with an experienced lawyer NOW.

You need a seasoned criminal defense attorney on your side who knows the Missouri Drug Penalties for felony and misdemeanor cases to help you formulate a strong defense. The difference between an attorney experienced with defending drug cases in Missouri and one who is merely a friend of the family can be the difference between going to prison or an acquittal at trial.

Drug Charges can range anywhere from Unlawful Use of Drug Paraphernalia, a class D misdemeanor, to Trafficking in Drugs, a class A felony. We handle criminal defense cases involving possession or use of illegal drugs such as Marijuana, Methamphetamine, Heroin, etc., to charges involving possession without a valid medical prescription of controlled substances, including Oxycontin and Xanax.

If you have been arrested or charged with possession of a controlled substance, then

You need an attorney now.

Having the right attorney on your side can make the difference between keeping your record clean by getting a second chance and having a record of a drug conviction, which can make it difficult to gain employment, rent an apartment, get a professional license, and many more difficulties. The right attorney is not just one who understands Missouri's drug laws and penalties, but also who has the time necessary to devote to your case. Anthony Bretz understands that if you're facing a misdemeanor or felony drug charge, then this is the most important thing in your life at the moment.

Missouri's Public Defender System is grossly overburdened which means your attorney won't have the time to prepare for your case.

Unlike the Public Defenders System, Anthony Bretz is able to give each of his clients and their cases the time required to ensure that they have the best defense possible. There are many possible defenses and motions which can be used in your case to prevent you from having a conviction on your record.

Only hiring a qualified attorney to handle your case will get you the best possible representation. Contact Anthony Bretz now to start protecting your rights.
