Riverside Criminal Defense Attorney

Riverside Drug Crime Lawyer

California can be a confusing place where drug laws are concerned. On the one hand, we are one of the few states where marijuana is legal for medicinal purposes; on the other hand, we have some of the strictest drug laws in the country. All it takes is being caught in the wrong place at the wrong time to end up facing a very real possibility of prison time. If you have been charged with a drug related crime, you need a drug crime defense attorney who will fight for your rights.

Our Riverside criminal defense lawyers represent clients accused of a wide variety of drug-related offenses, including:

Our law firm has extensive knowledge of California’s drug laws, and therefore knows how to defend against them. If drugs or paraphernalia were found during an unwarranted and unlawful search of your vehicle, for example, that evidence can be inadmissible in court. Possession of drugs in a shared apartment can be unclear, and how much evidence is needed to prove “possession with intent to sell” is a very gray area that can be disputed. We also know that under California’s Proposition 36, the Substance Abuse and Crime Prevention Act, you may qualify to avoid a prison sentence even if you are convicted.
