California Drug Crimes Defense
Whether you are charged with a state or a federal drug offense, you still maintain certain rights under the 4th, 5th, 6th and 14th amendments to the Constitution of the United States and the State of California. I will file all appropriate pretrial illegal search and seizure motions for purposes of protecting your rights and limiting the government’s evidence against you at trial. We can sometimes obtain an order to suppress the admission into evidence of the seized drugs. Keeping you out of prison is my foremost objective, and one for which I have earned a reputation for success. In many cases where the quantities of narcotics are not too extensive, time at a drug rehabilitation center may be substituted for incarceration. Also, where time in custody cannot be avoided, there are a number of jail and prison alternatives.
