Mississippi Drug Trafficking Attorney
Southaven Criminal Defense Lawyer
The Mid-South area, including North Mississippi, sees a large number of drug crimes and drug trafficking cases. This is due to the area’s close proximity to Memphis and the interstate arteries of I-40 and I-55, along with a law enforcement attitude that is widely known for its sometimes aggressive practices. At the law office of Patrick Stegall, Attorney and Counselor, I represent criminal defense clients in drug crimes and drug trafficking charges.
With extensive criminal defense experience and a commitment to client satisfaction, I explore every part of your drug trafficking charge, including the stop, search and arrest procedures. Law enforcement officials have sometimes overstepped their bounds and violated people’s civil rights; Desoto County officers are no different. When that happens, an aggressive North Mississippi drug trafficking lawyer can defend your rights and protect your interests.
Protecting Your Rights
If you are facing drug trafficking charges in or near Southaven, Mississippi, you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer to work with you at every step and to make sure your rights are being protected. I work hard to keep clients involved throughout their case, and take the extra steps necessary to make sure I am building an effective and specialized defense. This includes timely updates, sharing information given from the state, and considering all defenses and settlement offers.
There are countless issues to consider when defending against drug trafficking charges:
•Was the stop legitimate?
•Was racial profiling involved?
•Did the arresting officer perform an illegal search?
•Was there probable cause to stop or search?
•Was force or coercion used during interrogation?
•Were you fully informed of your rights during the arrest?
Similar in some ways to defending DUI and drug crime arrests, we examine all aspects of the stop, search and arrest to ensure that arresting officers followed proper procedures and did not violate your rights.
