Federal Drug Charges

The Cox Law Firm has extensive experience defending against federal drug charges.  If you have been contacted by a federal agency concerning an investigation against you involving the use or sale of controlled substances, contact our offices immediately!

The Cox Law Firm has extensive experience representing the accused in the arena of the unlawful possession, use or sale of any controlled substance. Our firm also has considerable experience in communicating with the FBI and DEA concerning open investigations into such activities. If you have been contacted by any of these governmental entities regarding possible involvement with the possession, use or distribution of any controlled substance, contact The Cox Law Firm at (816) 335-1000.

The attorneys at The Cox Law Firm represent clients in federal court for the following offenses:

  • Possession of Any Controlled Substance
  • Cultivation or Possession of Marijuana
  • Sale or Distribution of Any Controlled Substance
  • Conspiracy to Traffic Any Controlled Substance
  • Manufacturing Methamphetamine
  • Interstate Transportation of Controlled Substance

An aspect unique to the federal drug case is that often the accused is contacted before federal charges are actually formally filed against them. This gives the person being investigated an opportunity to contact legal counsel prior to having to answer to formal charges. It is of utmost importance to seek legal counsel as early in the investigative process as possible. The lawyers at The Cox Law Firm can help you understand the investigation, or charges, against you. We are trained in handling the complex federal criminal case and will protect the interests of our clients at every opportunity. We will review the governments’ case and analyze any weakness that may be present.

The Cox Law Firm is also experienced in reviewing the federal sentencing guidelines as they may pertain to your case. We understand how certain factors warrant a departure from the mandatory guidelines and always work toward achieving a resolution with your best interests as the focus.

If you have been contacted by the FBI or DEA concerning your possible involvement in an open investigation, concerning any of the above mentioned controlled substances, you can contact our firm immediately. We can help you understand what it is that is being asked of you. We can help you protect your rights during such an investigation, or if an indictment has been formally brought against you, we can help you defend your rights with experience and skilled representation. Contact us by phone at (816) 335-1000 or by email.
