Possession

Overland Park Possession Defense Attorney

Regarding Drug Possession

The state of Kansas along with City law enforcement has instituted an increased push in its fight against drugs by making more arrests than ever in response to pressure to eradicate drugs from our communities. Possession of any illegal controlled substance carries severe penalties. Prosecutors are eager to produce an increase in the number of convictions. Students and others who consider that mere possession of a drug for personal use or to share with friends may be surprised to find out how seriously this offense is treated by investigators, prosecutors and the courts. If you have been arrested for a possession offense, you need to consult with an Overland Park criminal defense attorney at once.

Possession Defense Lawyer in Overland Park

If an officer asks to conduct a search of your car, home or person you can and should refuse. If he or she didn't need permission they wouldn't ask. No matter how innocent you know you are, do not assist them by answering questions or giving information without the advice of your legal counsel. The severity of a possession charge, whether a misdemeanor or a felony, will depend upon the type of drug and the amount of drugs allegedly in your possession. For example, possession of a small amount of marijuana is a misdemeanor whereas possession of a similar amount of cocaine is a felony. A possession defense lawyer handles cases involving all types of controlled substances including prescription medications, methamphetamines, heroin, cocaine, MDMA and other drugs.

Conviction can result in imprisonment, cost you your current employment, affect your reputation, your credit, and close the door on future job opportunities. Law enforcement officers in their eagerness to "make a bust" overstep lawful procedure more often than is commonly thought. An experienced criminal defense lawyer at our firm has the expertise to use law enforcement's violations to great advantage in your defense. To learn more concerning your specific case call Gigstad Law Office, LLC for an initial consultation.

If you have been arrested for drug possession, contact an Overland Park criminal defense lawyer at our firm who is highly skilled in drug crime defense.

Client-Centered Legal Represntation
    "Robert Was Able to Handle Our Case with the Utmost Professionalism and Discretion"
    Robert was able to handle our case with the utmost professionalism and discretion. He took the time to outline any and all appropriate courses of action, demonstrating what I viewed as a superior consultative prowess. I was very appreciative of his aid, and would highly recommend him to my family and friends.

    "I Always Felt "in the Loop""
    Robert was extremely responsive from day one - returning my email contact request almost immediately. He walked me through the process and answered all my questions honestly and promptly. I always felt "in the loop". I originally contacted him because he was the only Johnson County attorney I found that had listed in his advertisement, expungement, as a service he provided. Robert assisted me in doing something I didn't know was possible - finally putting a bad decision I made 14 years ago behind me. Although I appreciated his professional and respectful approach to his work, I hope I never need his services again. If I do however, I would not hesitate to call him.

    "Robert Was Extremely Helpful and Great to Work With!"
    My dad has used Robert for several moving violations in the past and recommended that I give him a call for a speeding ticket of my own. Robert was extremely helpful and great to work with. He successfully got my speeding ticket reduced to a non moving violation.
