Drug Crimes

Drug Crime Lawyers in Lexington

Experienced Defense Against Drug Crimes in Kentucky

Drug crimes are some of the most frequently committed criminal offenses in the United States. Truly, the use and trafficking of illegal substances is a serious event, wreaking havoc on people’s lives through addiction and drug-related health issues, so it is understandable that law enforcement would want to crack down on unlawful usage. However, if you were unjustly accused of possessing or carrying drugs or simply managed to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, you could be facing serious consequences for something that is not your fault.

If you have been arrested for a crime related to drugs, you will most likely be feeling stressed and confused about what to do next. However, with the aid of our compassionate legal team at Landon Law, we can protect your rights and freedom throughout the legal process and help get you the treatment necessary to turn your life around.

Types of Drug Cases We Handle

Over the last decade, more than 12 million drug-related arrests have been made in the United States, and, unfortunately, many have arisen in Kentucky. In some cases, this may be because law enforcement officers can be too quick to charge someone; in other situations, they may even illegally influence a defendant’s behavior to possess or distribute drugs, all to catch a “larger ring.”

Our criminal defense lawyers can aggressively protect our clients from the different unjust charges made against them, including:

  • Possessing drugs: According to Kentucky laws, possession does not simply mean that you are physically holding drugs on your person. You can be charged if it appears that drugs are in any property that is either yours or deemed to be under your control, which can even include events where drugs have been planted or simply accidentally left in your locker, at your home, or in your car.
  • Distributing or trafficking drugs: When it comes to passing drugs, the law counts any case of delivering, carrying, or selling an uncontrolled substance as an illegal activity. Even when you did not intend to sell drugs, if authorities simply found them on your person or even accidentally on property you own, you can still be accused of intending to sell and distribute these substances.
  • Involvement in drug conspiracies: Even simply discussing the selling of drugs has been used as apparent evidence in charges where the defendant has been accused of conspiring to distribute substances illegally. This has often occurred even when no actual delivery took place.

The penalties for drug convictions can be quite severe. Even for generic possession of any drug, you can be charged with Class D or C felonies, which range in imprisonment time from one to 10 years. More severe penalties are applied to usage or possession of different substances, such as cocaine, heroin, or methamphetamine.

Our drug crime lawyers in Lexington know that sometimes people make mistakes or are just victims of chance circumstances. Either way, this tragic turn of events should not automatically ruin your life, and we can fight to defend you.

    "I am very appreciative and grateful for what they have done for me."
    Couldn’t be more pleased with Landon Law. I specifically worked with John Landon for two individual cases. Both got resolved without a hassle. John was attentive and very personable. Took time out of his personal life to speak with me multiple times via phone call or email. I can strongly say that by the end of your time with him, you’ll consider him a friend as well as an attorney. Never worked with a more personable and respectful firm. I am very appreciative and grateful for what they have done for me. Will highly recommend them to any of my friends in the future in need of legal help. Thank you John, and thank you Landon Law!

    "I definitely recommend them if you want a powerhouse fighting for you."
    They are the best..their fees are pretty fair and reasonable. Cheaper than any other lawyer I called. I worked with Charles Landon. Every time I had a question, concern or feeling hopeless, my text or phone call was always returned quickly. The outcome of my case was way more than I expected in my favor. He made sure that I never felt alone, that we were in it together. The confidence he had of himself reassured me that I was in good hands. He wasn’t judgemental or arrogant like most other lawyers. Just down to earth, he doesn’t stop fighting for your best interest. I definitely recommend them if you want a powerhouse fighting for you.

    "Landon Law IS the best choice!"
    Soooo lemme just start with how I got charged with wanton endangerment class A felony and Charles Landon got the E N T I R E thing DISMISSED!! Do y’all hear me!!?? DISMISSED!! He is without a doubt the best attorney I have ever had in my life and I’ve had a few sadly /: But with Charles I would highly highly hiiiiiiighly recommend his services. Not only did he get the absolute best outcome for me, it was very impressive how obviously intelligent, professional, and intuitive he was yet super chill and down to earth at the same time. Also, he always kept in touched by updating me with the progress of my cases and never skipped a beat when answering my calls/texts. Sometimes I would even call him when I was super anxious because I was overthinking and nervous and he would gently lay out the facts & our game plan for me again and remind me not to stress to much which helped soOooOo much. He took my feelings into consideration and truly made me feel important and heard. I could literally go on and on about how amazing of an attorney he is. But to make it simple, Landon Law IS the best choice!!
    Forever grateful for him :))

    "Landon Law is one of the few defense attorneys I have seen that truly fight for you."
    I had Charles Landon with a case that had been going on 2 years. He answered every phone call, question and always made sure I was informed and had the best defense possible. When my case started I was facing 20 years my case ended with me getting 5 years probation. Beyond grateful for him. Landon Law is one of the few defense attorneys I have seen that truly fight for you as much as they are able to.
