Call Bill Byrnes

Drug Manufacturing, Distribution, and Possession Attorney

Bill Byrnes has an impressive record with drug defense cases, and will put his expertise to work for you.

Missouri drug law is different from the drug laws of other states, as the charges are usually not determined by the specific substance or the amount in your possession. Possession of any prohibited substances is automatically labelled as a Class C Felony, which could result in 7 years in prison as well as a monetary penalty of up to $5,000.

The exception to this rule is the possession of marijuana: 35 grams or less could result in a misdemeanor with up to one year in prison and a fine of $1,000. Any amount above 35 grams is upgraded to a felony with much more serious consequences.

Criminal Consequences of Conviction

If you are charged with drug possession, the most important thing to remember is that you are legally entitled to have your attorney present during any communication—whether verbal or written—with an officer. Bill Byrnes will provide prompt and reliable legal advice to help you protect yourself or a loved one during an investigation or arrest for the illegal possession of drugs. In fact, Bill Byrnes’ most recent success involved 84 pounds of marijuana found in a vehicle trunk. The out of state driver was charged with Possession with Intent to Distribute. In the end, it was amended to possession with a fine. Bill Byrnes’s client was released in a matter of days. A drug defense by a lawyer with real expertise in illegal search and seizure produces this type of documented success.

To protect yourself against drug charges, you must know:

  • The FBI, DEA, ATF, county, and municipal law enforcement do not have legal authority to make legally binding agreements in exchange for reduced punishment.
  • Talking to an officer without a lawyer present usually results in a written or oral confession that is quite damaging to your defense.
  • Do not speak to any officer or official without your attorney present, even if you think you’re guilty.

What We Can Do for Your Drug Charge

As a leading drug defense attorney, Bill Byrnes has represented clients across Missouri. Whether arrested or under investigation for illegal drugs you need immediate legal advice that will protect your defense. Many people who wait to call a drug defense lawyer make big mistakes:

  • Providing verbal and/or written details, which will be used as evidence in deposition and trial. A Criminal Drug Defense Attorney can stop the collection of this evidence.
  • Believing officers, FBI, and DEA can make legally binding agreements for the promise of a reduced sentence.
  • Making agreements without a lawyer — that is, without an experienced advocate who understands the law.

Do not sign or discuss agreements without a lawyer, even if you are afraid you are guilty and will go to jail.

A qualified and experienced drug defense lawyer can explain the process to you and help you plan your strongest defense. Contact the Byrnes Law Firm today! Our lawyer’s office can be reached by phone or through our online contact form. We provide FREE and confidential initial consultations.
