Building a Defense to Your Drug Charges

In some drug cases, law enforcement seizes property and evidence without a warrant and without probable cause. If this was the case for you, we can bring a motion to suppress the evidence and keep it out of court.

Regardless of the circumstances that led to your arrest, we will leverage every resource in order to have the charges against you dismissed or the penalties reduced.

Skilled at negotiations, investigations and trial practice, we can defend you at every stage of your case. Contact the criminal defense lawyer James D. Veldhuis to schedule a consultation today.
