Implications of a Drug Crime

If you have been arrested or charged with a drug crime, you may be subject to prosecution under the Controlled Substance Act. Do not speak with anyone, including your family, friends, or law enforcement officers.

Even if you think that you are innocent of the crime, simply speaking with an officer who has placed you under arrest could mean that anything you say could be used against you in a court of law. The last thing that you want is to accidentally incriminate yourself when you did nothing wrong.

We work hard to use our knowledge of the law to your advantage and help reduce your charges or even have your case dismissed with the following defense strategies:

  • Create an element of doubt in the prosecutor's case
  • Prove that an arrest was illegally made
  • Prove that a search and seizure or raid was illegally performed
  • Petition for a motion to suppress evidence that was illegally collected

Your Defense Is Just a Phone Call Away

Every day, people are placed under arrest based on false information, suspicions, and in some cases, fraudulent allegations. We know that it may seem as though the evidence against you is incriminating, but we reassure you that we can defend your name relentlessly during this time. Contact our firm today to speak with a knowledgeable California drug crime lawyer to determine which course of action can best protect your rights and freedoms! We can be reached at 661-322-5833.
