Drug Crimes Defense Lawyer
Drug related crimes are possibly some of the most aggressively prosecuted crimes in our legal system today. At times it seems that local law enforcement is so determined to make an arrest in a drug crime case that they forget about the basic rights of the person they are investigating. If you are facing charges for any type of drug related crime, be sure that you have an aggressive criminal defense attorney who can help to protect your rights.
At our law office, A Professional Law Corporation, I have defended clients against all types of drug charges. I spent 19 years working as a Deputy District Attorney. I handled thousands of drug related cases as a prosecutor. I have a complete understanding of prosecution trial strategies in these cases and I know the types of defenses that work against them.
Experience in a Wide Variety of Cases
I have defended clients against all types of drug related charges, including possession, distribution, trafficking, manufacturing and cultivation in cases involving a variety of drugs, including marijuana, methamphetamine, alcohol, ecstasy, cocaine, heroin and LSD. My experience on both sides of these cases allows me to be much more proactive and to provide more innovative defense strategies at trial.
I dig deeper to fully understand the facts of your case. I review all police reports and witness statements to look for inconsistencies we can use to your advantage. I question whether the officer had probable cause to enter your home or search your property. Law Enforcement Officers have to obey the law too. If the search and seizure did not fully comply with the law, I take immediate action to have the case dismissed.
Eighty-five percent of all crimes are drug and alcohol related. I am actively involved in the Diversion Program and Proposition 36 Drug Court because I believe that once you beat the addiction problem, the crime problem goes away. Both Diversion and Prop 36 allow you to complete a treatment process and be rewarded with dismissal of your case. I pursue these alternatives relentlessly to help my clients keep convictions off their record and addiction out of their lives.
In those cases where a guilty verdict comes back, I will use my considerable experience to seek treatment in lieu of incarceration. I have a solid track record of success in keeping my clients out of jail either by beating the case against them or negotiating alternative punishments on their behalf.
