Drug Crime, Sex Offense, and Three Strikes Defense Lawyer

Law enforcement is aggressively targeting anyone who may be in possession of controlled substances, and frequently that substance is methamphetamine and/or marijuana. No matter how small the quantity, and no matter how questionable the stop and search of a person and/or their vehicle (or home), quite often the district attorney will charge possession, possession for sale, and transportation of controlled substances. If you are traveling from one county to another, the DA will add an enhancement for certain controlled substances, which will add up to six years in state prison just for crossing the county line.

Unless you are properly defended, the charges and additional special allegations and enhancements can have devastating effects. Our firm has vast and successful experience representing people charged with crimes involving meth as well as many other controlled substances.

Our firm also represents people charged with sex offenses. Such charges carry not only very substantial state prison time — up to life — but also the obligation to register for life as a sex offender if convicted. Only aggressive representation, including a thorough investigation, will provide you with the opportunity to avoid wrongful conviction.
