Experienced South Dakota Drug Possession Defense Lawyer

If you have been arrested on a drug possession charge or are under investigation for any drug crime, you need an experienced attorney to safeguard your constitutional rights. The criminal justice system can be intimidating, with its own set of rules. Often, you can feel guilty just being charged with a crime. We can help.

At the Christensen Law Offices, we have defended residents and non-residents in criminal matters, including drug possession and forfeitures, throughout Western South Dakota, the Black Hills for over 30 years. We know that most people are unfamiliar with the criminal process and are frightened by their contact with the police and the criminal courts. We are dedicated to alleviating that fear and protecting your interests.

We handle all types of drug charges, including:

Possession of narcotics or controlled substances Sale or distribution of illegal drugs, including:
  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Methamphetamines
  • Prescription pain killers
  • Possession of illegal drug paraphernalia

We have successfully represented individuals in cases where the state has attempted to take motor vehicles, motorcycles and other property through drug forfeiture proceedings, by either obtaining dismissal of the proceedings or through favorable buybacks.

At the Christensen Law Offices, we have worked extensively with nonresidents who have been charged with drug-related offenses while attending the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally or vacationing in Western South Dakota. We have also represented these individuals in personal injury claims.

When you have been arrested for a drug offense, including drug possession, the criminal justice system can often make you feel anxious, alone and intimidated. We understand the feeling. At the Christensen Law Offices, we are committed to easing your anxiety and providing a safe place where you know your interests are being protected. We work with you to help you make good decisions based on knowledge and understanding, not on fear.
