Aggressive Drug Crime Defense In St. Louis County

Facing drug charges can be frightening. The consequences of a conviction can be life-changing, so it is important to present an aggressive defense.

At The Civella Law Firm, P.C., I have more than 24 years of experiences fighting drug charges for my Missouri and Illinois clients. As a former prosecutor, I know what the other side will try to claim against you, and I will do everything I can to find holes in their arguments.

Contact me to schedule a free initial consultation. As a solo attorney, I am committed to providing one-on-one attention to every client. We will discuss your situation, and I will explain how I can help you fight the charges against you.

Protecting Your Rights In Missouri And Illinois

Drug charges range from minor misdemeanors to major felonies. Often, my clients are charged with the wrong crime, and I am able to negotiate to a much lesser charge. As a former prosecutor, I have a relationship with many of the prosecutors in St. Louis County. They respect my professional record, and are often willing to negotiate to my clients' benefit.

I have experience representing clients against drug charges such as:

  • Possession of marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine or other illegal substances
  • Drug possession with intent to distribute and/or manufacture

Evidence Is Key

I always look at the evidence first in drug cases. What is the evidence against you? Is it strong enough to gain a conviction? If so, how did the authorities gather their evidence? If they collected it illegally, it cannot be used against you.

As an experienced lawyer, I know all of the search and seizure laws backward and forward. Taking the time to notice important details, I will craft an aggressive defense against the accusations you are facing.

For experienced and compassionate representation when you have been charged with drug possession or another crime, contact me to schedule a confidential consultation. My office is open Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., but I schedule flexible office hours by appointment.
