Pursuant to the Compassionate Use Act of 1996, medical marijuana dispensaries have opened throughout Los Angeles County. These clinics provide a valuable service to patients in need of medical marijuana, but they may be in danger of being shut down and the owners and employees prosecuted for their actions. I think this is reprehensible. I am a strong advocate for medical marijuana and believe that it can offer patients suffering from chronic pain, eating disorders, cancer and AIDS much-needed relief. Measures taken by law enforcement and the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office to shut down dispensaries violates the Compassionate Use Act and places innocent people at risk of arrest and serious criminal penalties.

Marijuana Dispensary Busts, Investigations & Charges
If you work at or run a marijuana dispensary and are concerned about an investigation by state or federal law enforcement, involve an attorney who can offer you information applicable to current legislation and case law to help you avoid an investigation in the first place. If you are already facing criminal charges, seek the representation of an aggressive lawyer who will protect your legal rights every step of the way.
At my office, you can depend on uninterrupted, undeterred legal defense at every step of the way. When it comes to allegations of a criminal nature, particularly those that pertain to drugs and cases of medical marijuana, there is absolutely no room for hesitation or error. Therefore, I work tirelessly to ensure that each and every one of my clients is presented with dedicated attention and hard-hitting legal defense, both in and out of the courtroom. I have been serving the resident of Los Angeles and its surrounding communities for over 25 years now, and as such there is little in the way of criminal arrests, charges, and convictions that I have not seen. I know what it takes to defend my clients against the charges that have been made in their name, and I am willing to do what it takes to see to it that they do not go to court unprepared, undefended, or unsure of the attorney with whom they have chosen to work.
