State Drug Charges

The lawyers with The Cox Law Firm are experienced in the defense of drug charges in both Kansas and Missouri.  Laws can vary heavily in each state, thus, a criminal drug defense attorney experienced with both is essential to resolving your case.

The Cox Law Firm has been representing the accused regarding state felony drug charges for over 35 years. We are experienced and skilled at handling each and every phase of the investigation, formal charge, plea negotiation and trial phases of the criminal prosecutorial process. This is an unsettling time for anyone who may be facing such a situation. If you have been contacted by the police, or are facing criminal charges for alleged involvement with the possession or distribution of any drug, narcotic, or controlled substance, we are here to help you. We can speak with you and provide a free initial consultation to assess your situation. We are experienced at solving legal problems for our clients.

Our lawyers currently represent those accused of the following drug related activities:

  • Possession of Marijuana
  • Intent to Manufacture Methamphetamine
  • Cultivation of Marijuana
  • Distribution of Methamphetamine
  • Distribution of Marijuana
  • Conspiracy to Distribute a Controlled Substance
  • Possession of Cocaine
  • Possession of Any Controlled Substance
  • Possession of Methamphetamine
  • Prescription Fraud

Currently there is an upswing in criminal indictments for drug related activity in both the federal and state courts. The municipal courts still prosecute drug possession, but normally confine their pursuit of charges to marijuana and alcohol related offenses. The state courts are the main punishers of criminal drug possession and trafficking in the Midwest. The federal court systems normally pursue the more sophisticated organizations involved in illegal drug activity.

The lawyers at The Cox Law Firm can speak with you about your situation seven days a week. Contact us by phone at (816) 335-1000 or by email. We can help you assess your situation. If you have been contacted by the police, or have been charged, formally, with any of the above crimes, it is important that you speak with competent legal counsel as soon as possible. It is critical that you have representation that can advise you of all of your rights and options immediately. The sooner you have experienced legal advice, the better.
