San Jose Drug Defense Lawyer

If you are arrested for a drug offense in Santa Clara County you need legal representation from an attorney experienced in handling drug charges. With the assistance of an experienced attorney you can ensure that your rights will be protected and that you are not unfairly punished. Many times an accused has his rights violated as evidence is gathered against him. You may not be aware that this is happening to you. I can leverage over 30 years of experience to identify issues that will place your case in a better defense posture.

Frequently Committed Drug Crimes

These days the state of California has zero tolerance when it comes to drug related offenses. All drug crimes are taken seriously by law enforcement and prosecuted to the fullest extent. The most common type of drug crimes include: under the influence, drug possession, drug possession with intent to sell, possession of drug paraphernalia, drug manufacturing, drug trafficking, drug distribution, drug cultivation, and money laundering.

Legal Penalties for Drug Crimes in California

Once a person is convicted of a drug crime, he may be punished with imprisonment, probation, parole, large fines, mandatory drug and alcohol counseling, registration as a drug offender. The penalties for drug crimes will depend on the type of drug crime committed, the type of drug possessed, the amount of drug possessed and the reason the drug is possessed. If the defendant is a repeat offender, or if the defendant involved minors in the drug crime, he may be subject to enhanced criminal charges and sentencing.

A person accused of a drug crime must be particularly careful if he is charged with a federal drug crime. The sentencing issues for federal drug crimes are very different from state cases and often involve minimum mandatory sentences. Because federal cases tend to be very well investigated a great amount of time is invested in the defense. It is paramount that individuals who are charged with a federal drug crime have an attorney experienced in defending against a federal prosecution.

I have more than 30 years experience defending drug cases in Santa Clara County. I understand the state and federal court system in Santa Clara County and am familiar with the prosecution and sentencing practices in both systems.

The key for clients facing drug charges is to have representation that ensures that every aspect of the charge against them is properly examined. I have the knowledge and experience to identify the critical evidence and defend clients every step of the way.
