Addiction & Rehab Services in Los Angeles, California

Criminal Defense Lawyer in Los Angeles

Drug and alcohol addiction can have a devastating effect on an individual's life and career. Likewise, a individual under the influence of drugs or alcohol may find themselves caught up in the criminal justice system as a result of poor decisions made. Addiction can create multiple problems for both the addict, the addicts family and their loved ones. Often, the person struggling with addiction is unable to take the steps necessary to seek the appropriate help. People who struggle with drug addiction or alcoholism often have difficulty controlling their emotions and living up to their responsibilities, which can make it hard to hold a job, manage finances , and maintain strong relationships with family and friends. For a person struggling with alcoholism or addiction, it's important to seek help or intervention right away. The help is there for those who want it. Our Attorneys have sought out the most qualified rehabilitation facilities and specialists available and are prepared to help our clients and their families during this difficult time. Over the years, Michael has worked closely with Judges and Rehabilitation facilities in crafting creative sentences that utilize rehabilitation as an alternative to incarceration. Many courts have realized that a state prison sentence is not always the answer and that successful rehabilitation can often serve the best interests of all parties involved.

Addiction, Rehab, and Criminal Defense

Drug and alcohol addiction can affect a person's sense of judgment in many ways. Unfortunately, this can lead to such criminal behavior as drug possession, drug cultivation, selling drugs, DUI, theft, and other serious crimes. When a person with addiction problems is faced with criminal charges, there are a number of options that can be taken to address the real problem: making sure the defendant gets treatment for his or her addiction or alcoholism. Judges like to see people take responsible steps towards correcting their behavior. If you have been convicted or charged with a crime, we may be able to help you obtain an alternative sentence. Instead of serving time in jail for your crime, the judge or prosecution may agree to let you attend rehab. In the judge's and prosecution's eyes, it's better to get you the treatment you need to combat your addiction now, so you're less likely to commit the same offense in the future.
