Minnesota Drug Crime Defense Lawyers Representing Clients Nationwide

If you have been arrested for a drug crime, if the police have come with a search warrant, or if you suspect you are under investigation for a state or federal drug-related offense, call us immediately at 612-474-5420. An attorney is available to speak with you 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Representing Clients In State And Federal Courts

Drug offenses are common, but defending against drug-related charges is legally complex. The St Paul criminal defense attorneys at Ryan Pacyga Criminal Defense are experienced in controlled substance cases. We have defended clients charged with state or federal drug offenses in many different states.

Please contact our law firm for effective representation in cases involving any Schedule One or Schedule Two controlled substance or narcotics. We have successfully represented clients in drug crime cases involving:

  • Marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and fentanyl
  • Conspiracy to distribute 21 U.S.C. 841
  • Synthetic drugs
  • Prescription medications, such as OxyContin and oxycodone
  • Drug possession
  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Drug distribution or sales
  • Narcotics trafficking
  • Drug manufacture, including marijuana grow houses and meth labs

We have aggressively represented clients in the St. Paul, Minnesota area who have been charged with murder after the person they allegedly gave or sold drugs to died as a consequence of using a controlled substance. We have avoided prison sentences for those clients despite the presumptive prison guidelines.

Protecting Your Rights

The admissibility of evidence is key to every drug case. If proper procedure was not followed in gathering evidence against you or even if they got a search warrant, we will work to have it suppressed, that is, thrown out of court.

Our attorneys will review the facts of the case, asking questions such as:

  • Did police have the right to stop your vehicle?
  • Did law enforcement have the right to search you, your home or your vehicle without a warrant?
  • If a search warrant was issued, was it valid and properly executed?
  • Were you entrapped?
  • Was a confidential informant involved and, if so, how reliable is the information he or she provided?
  • If drugs were found in your house or apartment, prosecutors may accuse you of possessing it even if it was not found on you. We have succeeded in “constructive possession” cases before.

Helping You Outside Of Court

We understand that addiction can lead to drug charges. If you or your friend/family member are struggling with addiction, we want to be a part of helping your situation, no only in the court case, but beyond it as well. We are well connected with several treatment providers and we have seen first-hand how coming up with a treatment plan as well as our legal defense can help get exceptional results, even in the most serious drug cases. We believe in making a positive impact in your life, both in and out of the courtroom. So if you want help, we would love to be a part of that journey with you.
