A Drug Crimes Charge Can Change Your Life – For Good or Bad

No one wants to end up in criminal court facing a drug charge. Having a criminal record is never a good thing. However, if you have a drug problem, this may be the time to face your problem and make a change.

One thing defense attorney Tom Graves brings to clients in drug crimes cases is a thorough knowledge of drug treatment options in central Iowa. He represents a drug treatment center in Des Moines. He has seen many clients get their lives back together because they chose drug treatment rather than jail time. They turned a challenge into an opportunity.
