Los Angeles Drug Trafficking Defense Lawyer
Drug trafficking is typically the most serious type of drug crime that a person may be accused of committing. These charges may involve the unlawful cultivation, manufacturing, transportation, sale or distribution of controlled substances such as cocaine, marijuana, heroin, ecstasy, methamphetamine or prescription drugs such as hydrocodone or OxyContin. This is often charged as a federal offense, particularly when it occurs on a large scale and involves crossed state lines or national borders. In the face of drug trafficking charges, you need an aggressive Los Angeles drug defense lawyer who understands the true severity of the matter. You need an attorney who can go to bat for you against federal investigators and the United States Attorney’s Office or who can handle your case on a state level – whatever is necessary to protect your interests.
Your best chances of obtaining a successful case outcome and of escaping criminal penalties such as prison time, hefty fines, and probation is by aligning with an aggressive legal defense attorney. Even if you are innocent of the charges that have been made against you, there is little chance that prosecution and the court system will see it that way. Unless, that is, you have sound legal counsel on your side. You need an attorney who can vehemently defend your rights while representing your innocence in the claims that have been made in your name. You need winning defense with a track record for success. In essence, you need my law firm. I have been practicing criminal and drug defense since 1984 and I know what it take to have your charges dropped or your sentencing reduced. It takes a lot of legal skill and know-how to challenge the arguments that will be brought by persecution, but with more than two decades of experience under my belt, I am prepared to handle anything that is thrown at me during an in-court trial or out-of-court settlement.
Comprehensive Defense against Drug Trafficking Charges
I am committed to the vigorous defense of clients throughout the Los Angeles area in the face of drug trafficking charges – at either a state or federal level. I work to provide a comprehensive defense of their interests, legal rights and financial needs. The latter is particularly important when state or federal investigators initiate forfeiture proceedings to seize a suspect or defendant’s assets. This makes paying for legal representation difficult or impossible, seriously hindering a defendant’s ability to build a strong defense against his or her charges. As an experienced criminal lawyer, I know what needs to be done to counter these proceedings. I work immediately to challenge forfeitures, often involving accountants, investigators and other professionals to prove that such behavior is unwarranted or even constitutes harassment.
