Practice Areas

The James Martin Davis Law Office provides exceptional criminal defense representation to clients in Omaha, Nebraska and throughout the Midwest. If you are under investigation or have been charged with a state or federal crime, contact us today for a complimentary consultation. Our areas of practice include:

State & Federal Drug Cases

Among the most prevalent criminal offenses in the Midwest are those related to drug use, manufacturing, distribution, and trafficking. State and federal drug laws can be particularly unforgiving, allowing a trial judge to impose severe penalties including heavy fines, confiscation of property, and lengthy prison sentences. Prosecutors will often seek the maximum sentence available under the law for defendants who lack experienced defense counsel.
We can help you defend against a variety of charges, including:

  • Distribution and delivery
  • Manufacturing
  • Possession

We routinely interact with many of the area’s prosecutors and judges, often negotiating with them to obtain a fair sentence that affords clients the opportunity to treat their addiction and achieve a life free of criminal involvement. Even if you have prior convictions, we will present a favorable case that minimizes the sentence you receive.
