We routinely defend clients with drug charges throughout northeast Kansas and have a reputation for excellence in Kansas courtrooms.

Our Overland Park Drug Crime Defense Lawyers Can Guide You Toward Justice

Joseph, Hollander & Craft’s Overland Park drug crime defense lawyers have what it takes to effectively defend you against Kansas drug charges. On JHC’s drug crimes defense team, we have former prosecutors who know police tactics and prosecutors’ theories and objectives. In addition, we have career attorneys who have devoted themselves to protecting and defending the rights of the accused.

Our Overland Park drug felony lawyers are dedicated to challenging law enforcement overreach and reducing the incarceration of nonviolent drug offenders. We examine the circumstances of your search and arrest to determine whether there has been a violation of your Fourth Amendment rights and fight for any illegally obtained evidence to be excluded from trial. If the prosecution can prove its case, we negotiate an optimal plea deal and develop a sentencing presentation to support the lowest sentence possible.

Types of Drug Charges We Defend Against

Our Overland Park drug lawyers have defended thousands of clients facing all types of drug charges throughout Kansas. Drug charges we defend include:

We defend felony drug crimes in the United States District Court for the District of Kansas, Johnson County, and Wyandotte County, and we defend misdemeanor drug crimes in state and municipal courts.

Don’t Wait—Contact an Overland Park Drug Lawyer Immediately

If you’ve been arrested or are being investigated for a drug-related crime in Overland Park or the surrounding areas, time is of the essence. Call us immediately.

Just as you see on TV and in the movies, it is important to not speak to anyone about anything related to allegations against you until you speak with an attorney. Why? Because law enforcement officers want you to implicate yourself in a crime. They may suggest that it is in your best interest to cooperate with their investigation, but it rarely is—not without an agreement regarding what your cooperation will get you.

Protect and Defend Your Constitutional Rights

Our Overland Park drug criminal defense lawyers know the tactics police use when investigating drug crimes, and we know when those tactics cross the line. Police may violate your Fourth or Fifth Amendment rights during a stop, search, or interrogation. Evidence gained through these constitutional violations should not be available for the prosecution to use at trial, but you need a skilled criminal defense attorney to make an effective suppression argument. Often regarded as letting someone off on a technicality, judges are not inclined to suppress evidence if they can avoid it. It is important to hire an attorney who knows how to spot the important suppression issues as well as how to persuade the court that the problem cannot be overcome.

We will work with you to uncover any constitutional violations that may have occurred in your case and ensure that the prosecution does not benefit from them. We will examine the circumstances of your car stop or roadside search, review the application for the warrant and whether it was executed properly, and scrutinize any interrogation for coercive conduct.  If we find an infringement of your constitutional rights, we will make the case for suppression in writing and in the courtroom.

Do I Need an Overland Park Drug Crime Defense Lawyer for Drug Possession?

Yes! You should seek the counsel of an experienced drug crime lawyer for any drug charge—even simple possession and even if you admitted to your criminal conduct. Virtually any criminal conviction can affect your life in significant ways—including your access to housing, your opportunity to get a new job, or your ability to advance in your career. It will become part of your criminal history, thereby potentially increasing the sentence that may be imposed for any future offense. It is important to consult with a knowledgeable drug crime lawyer before deciding how to proceed in any criminal case. Call one of JHC’s drug crime lawyers to see what we can do for you. 

Do first-time drug offenders go to jail?

Whether you will be sentenced to a term of incarceration for a drug offense depends on many factors—the type of drug(s), the quantity of drug(s), the jurisdiction (penalties differ greatly from federal to state court), and the activity (e.g., manufacturing methamphetamine for sale is penalized more harshly than simply possessing a small amount of the drug for personal use).

If you are facing a drug felony with a severity level designation between 1 and 4 under Kansas state law, the presumptive sentence is prison—even if you are a first time offender. The judge is authorized to impose a lesser sentence, such as probation—but only if the judge is persuaded to do so.

JHC’s drug defense attorneys have ample experience obtaining sentences below the guideline. We counsel all of our clients regarding possible and likely outcomes for their cases and help them devise a plan to succeed if a probation sentence is granted.
