South-Central Kansas Drug Charges Lawyer
Wichita Marijuana Possession Defense
The Law Office of Gary W. Owens
Drug abuse, despite its social stigma, is neither uncommon in the United States as a whole nor right here in South-Central Kansas. This prevalence has led to a great deal of public outrage, hand-wringing, and harsh new drug laws in recent decades. It has also led to a lot of non-violent drug users being locked up in prison for a very long time.
If you are facing drug charges, the first step in getting you the help you need is to help you avoid the most severe consequences courts can impose.
The help you need
At the Law Office of Gary W. Owens, I represent people in the Wichita area and the surrounding region of South-Central Kansas who have been charged with drug-related offenses of all types. I am a former public defender with more than a decade of experience and have personally handled dozens of jury trials from beginning to end. I am a zealous and aggressive advocate on behalf of my clients and I can defend you against the full variety of possible drug charges, including:
- Marijuana and other drug possession
- Possession with intent
- Meth manufacturing
- Drug trafficking
- Sale of cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin, illegal prescription drugs, or other controlled substance
Kansas criminal laws are especially harsh on those people accused of manufacturing or operating meth labs. As an experienced trial attorney, I am skilled at the kind of 'motion practice' required to effectively defend clients against these charges.
Wherever possible, I will seek to challenge evidence on grounds such as the lack of probable cause or an illegal search and seizure. However, I am also adept at working with prosecutors and judges to get charges reduced or more favorable sentencing terms imposed whenever a dismissal is not possible.
I will also be honest and forthcoming with you from the start. I make no empty promises to my clients. I do promise you that as my client, you will be treated with dignity and respect and without judgment by me or any member of my staff.
