Prescription Drug Crime Lawyer in Los Angeles

Prescription Medication and the Law

Drug crimes do not only relate to illegal narcotics. They also apply to prescription drugs, which are regulated by the government and are controlled substances just like heroin or cocaine. The only difference is that no one can lawfully possess an illegal drug but a patient with a valid prescription can possess and take prescription drugs. A defendant may face drug charges for the unlawful possession, distribution, manufacturing or trafficking of any prescription drug, such as Percocet, Vicodin, hydrocodone, oxycodone, OxyContin, valium, methadone, Xanax, Ritalin and Fentanyl – to name a few.

Have you been arrested for any type of prescription drug crime? You need an attorney on your side who is experienced in dealing with these types of cases. My name is Robert Michael Helfend, and I am a Los Angeles drug crime attorney who has been helping clients throughout this area in the face of state and federal drug charges since 1984. Because I have always limited my practice to criminal defense and have been working in this field for such a long time, I truly understand what goes into these cases. I know how to aggressively defend a client’s legal rights. I also know how to recognize weaknesses in the prosecution’s case against a client in order to determine how to expose these and turn the matter in my client’s favor.

I handle prescription drug crime cases related to possession, sale, distribution and trafficking as well as those involving prescription fraud, such as stealing, altering or forging prescription slips to unlawfully obtain prescription drugs.
