Minimizing the Damage
In California, a conviction for misdemeanor possession of marijuana is punishable by a $100 fine but not jail time. While this may be a relatively light penalty as compared to the penalties in other states, don't be fooled. A conviction for any type of drug crime could prevent you from obtaining a job, loans for college and even a home — regardless of whether you received a jail sentence.
Our aggressive marijuana criminal defense law practice handles complex marijuana possession and sales cases involving a wide range of issues and defenses including the following:
We understand what a drug conviction means and from the second we start work on your defense — will put forth every effort to see that you remain out of jail, and that your criminal record stays free of a conviction on marijuana charges. In practical terms, we look long and hard at the facts, at the evidence the state plans to use against you and at every potentially viable defense. We may also work with professional investigators and highly-regarded experts to strengthen your legal case, if necessary.
In short, we will work to see that you get the results you need to move beyond today's legal troubles and move forward with your life.
