Thompson Law Office

Iowa City's Criminal Defense Firm

Drug Charges

Drug Charges are handled differently in Iowa City than in any other county in the State of Iowa. If charged with drug possession, intent to distribute, keeping a drug house, paraphernalia, give us a call.


An Operating While Intoxicated / DUI charge requires an attorney that is experienced with the local criminal court and with the Iowa Department of Transportation. With our experienced, aggressive approach we will minimize the effect this charge has on your future.

Possession of Fictitious ID

Possession of Fictitious ID is a common charge at the University of Iowa, and our extremely focused criminal law practice has experience handling these charges.
