Mounting A Strong Defense Against Drug Charges

The war on drugs has long been a focus of law enforcement task forces and prosecutors across the country. The laws are increasing in severity, with mandatory minimum sentences that can change an individual’s life forever.

Many individuals facing drug charges do not pose a threat to society at large, yet a single conviction can leave them behind bars for years. As with many other criminal offenses, the more convictions you have on your record, the more severe the charge will be. It is vital that you protect yourself immediately if you have been investigated, arrested or charged with a drug crime.

Do not compromise your rights or accept the legal actions against you. Contact Shipman & DeHardt, P.C., in Lee’s Summit. Our attorneys believe everyone deserves strong defense, and they have decades of experience to ensure that clients receive it.
