Federal Drug Possession/DWI Practice
Our Federal Drug Possession/DWI Practice
Have you have received a summons or ticket from a federal park ranger either in the St. Louis Arch parking garage, or on any of the federal parks or scenic waterways for possession of drugs or for DWI? Perhaps you have received such a summons on a military base. Many people do not realize that, because the Arch is on federal property, if you have come from a casino to retrieve your car parked in the Arch parking lot, you could be facing federal DWI charges. Any of these types of tickets may be a federal petty offense, and we can help you to obtain a favorable disposition. We have experience with such matters.
We have handled federal petty offenses arising out of float trips on the scenic waterways, concerts in our beautiful southern counties. We have handled such cases in the Eastern District of Missouri, in St. Louis, Missouri; we have handled them in the Southeastern Division of that district, in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. We have also handled such cases - often arising out of tickets or summonses received on Scott Air Force Base - in the Southern District of Illinois in East St. Louis, Illinois, or on the Air Force Base, itself.
A DWI or drug charges can have far-reaching consequences for you, even though it is considered a "petty offense."
Our offices are located in St. Louis (Clayton), but we defend individuals in federal courts in St. Louis Missouri (the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri, Eastern Division), and in Cape Girardeau (the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri, Southeastern Division), as well as in E. St. Louis and Benton, Illinois (the United States District Court for the Southern District of Illinois).
Our attorneys have a combined thirty years in the federal court system and are familiar with federal practice and procedure. We understand fully how intimidating it can be to be called into federal court on these types of charges, and we want to help you navigate the federal court system successfully.
