Los Angeles Drug Crime Lawyers

Drug Defense Lawyers for State or Federal Offenses

A drug crime refers to any criminal activity involving a substance or narcotic deemed illegal by federal or state law. Common drug offenses include:

  • Drug possession
  • Drug possession with intent to sell
  • Drug cultivation
  • Drug manufacturing
  • Drug distribution
  • Drug trafficking
  • Drug transportation
  • Soliciting drugs to minors
  • Selling drugs near a school zone
  • Medical marijuana violations
  • Prescription drug violations

In California, the majority of drug crimes involve the use of marijuana, cocaine, crack cocaine, heroin, crystal meth, Ecstasy, and PCP. However, in some cases, the drug in question is a lawful prescription or over-the-counter medication. When a person uses a lawful drug for unlawful purposes, he or she can still face criminal drug charges. An example of this is when people obtain certain prescription medications, such as OxyContin, Xanax, or Vicodin, to resell them to make a profit. Another example of this includes people who purchase large quantities of over-the-counter cold and allergy medicines, such as Sudafed and Claritin D, to manufacture the ingredients into crystal meth.

Contact an Experienced Drug Crimes Defense Attorney

If you have committed a drug offense, it's crucial that you obtain experienced legal counsel right away. Depending on the severity of your charges, the state and/or federal government is going to come after aggressively, and seek tough penalties. If convicted, you could be sentenced to such penalties as time in jail or federal prison, steep fines, probation, community service, mandatory drug treatment, and more.

From there, we will immediately begin preparing your case, and doing whatever we can to ensure we have strong, convincing, and compelling evidence and testimony to present to the prosecution, judge, and jury. Our number one priority is making sure you are not found guilty, and that you walk away from this experience with your rights and freedom intact!
