Drug Charges in Missouri

Combs Law Group recognizes that St. Louis, just like the entire nation, is in the midst of an illegal drug epidemic, the likes of which we have not seen in years. He knows that even good people who live productive lives can get caught up in drug addiction, which can lead them to desperate acts to support said addiction. In Missouri, drug charges are largely based on the type of drug involved and the amount one had in possession. In addition, the law differs between whether you simply possessed an illegal substance, or were intending to sell or distribute it.

Our firm has helped many people in St. Louis facing drug charges. We take each illegal drug case seriously and work with you to determine the best course of action to take. We dig deep, examine all the details of your case, and formulate a defense that is unique for your case. We will fight your charges every step of the way and will tirelessly work to get them reduced, if not dropped entirely. In addition, we will actively work with prosecuting attorneys to determine if alternative resolutions, such as drug treatment programs, are viable options to pursue in your case.

Our firm is also cognizant of the fact that opinions about drug laws, and indeed even the laws themselves, are rapidly changing in Missouri. Drugs that once were scheduled and seen as a national menace, like marijuana, are now being legalized. Missouri, for instance, is now a state where medical cannabis is legal, and there are many conversations amongst lawmakers about fully legalizing marijuana for adult use, as is the case in Illinois.

DWI Lawyer In Missouri

Combs Law Group is an experienced DWI and DUI law firm in St. Louis that has helped many people fight their drunk driving charges. Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is taken seriously in Missouri. It affects your car insurance costs, driving record, license privileges, and indeed can prevent you from traveling to certain foreign countries, most notably Canada. In addition, depending on the circumstances of your case, you could be barred from legally getting behind the wheel for anywhere from several months to a year or more. You may also be required to pay for, install, and maintain an ignition interlock device, which will prevent you from operating a vehicle unless you blow into a breathalyzer and record a result under a certain limit. The length of time you can be required to use this device varies depending on your offense and previous record.

Our DWI defense approach begins with a thorough review of your alcohol influence report and all the evidence against you. While you may think that you are going to be certainly convicted, the facts of your case may show that this may not be the case. Police officers and staff are required by law to follow a particular procedure when making arrests for driving while intoxicated. If they deviate from this protocol even slightly, or improperly administer components like field sobriety tests, what was once an airtight case can now become one with grounds for dismissal.

Our firm has helped many people who have been arrested for driving while intoxicated and wish to fight their charges. We have succeeded in reducing charges, getting fair adjudications, and having DWI or DUI cases dismissed. Combs Law Group is ready to take your DUI case or DWI case and provide you with the legal representation you deserve.

Defense Against St. Louis Felony Charges

Being accused of a crime classified by Missouri as a felony is a serious charge. Felonies in Missouri range from Class A crimes, such as murder or kidnapping, all the way to Class D felonies like third-degree assault or leaving the scene of an accident. Sentencing guidelines and punishments vary depending on what class of felony you are facing. This could include a potentially long prison sentence, substantial fines, or a lengthy probation period. In addition, you might run into difficulty finding work, and may not be able to exercise your right to vote or possess a firearm.

Combs Law Group has a strong record of defending people in St. Louis charged with felony offenses. We give every one of our felony clients the serious and personal attention they deserve. Our attorneys are devoted to zealously defending our clients, while always ensuring they are valued, respected, and always informed of the status of their case.


  • I'm not surprised that Combs Law Group has a 5 out of 5 stars on Google. I was fortunate enough to find Chris through a friend, who had hired Chris as his DWI lawyer in Maryland Heights. He came highly recommended and so I went and met him and I found him to be really helpful right from the start. I could tell that he was going to take care of me and help get me out of the legal problems I was facing. I would definitely hire Chris again if I was in need of a criminal defense lawyer in St. Louis. Thanks, Chris!

  • I would like to take this as an opportunity to commend and thank the Combs Law Group. Mr. Combs recently represented me for a speeding ticket that I received in St. Louis while on a business trip. Mr. Combs was prompt and efficient with our correspondence regarding the matter, and was able to get the ticket dismissed. I highly recommend Mr. Combs and will refer him to any of my colleagues in need of his services.
