Drug charges are the most common criminal charge in California – in 2008, a total of 270,326 arrests were made for drug offenses. By comparison, 211,163 people were arrested for drunk driving.
Every day, more than 700 people are arrested for violating the state's complex and often confusing drug laws. And of those who think legalization is the answer, think again: State statistics show marijuana arrests have increased more than 20 percent, despite its partial legalization for medical purposes.

Our staff will build your case for trial while using every weapon at our disposal to seek acceptable alternatives on your behalf, including:

Too often, arresting officers and prosecutors will inappropriately seek felony charges, including possession with intent to sell, because of the amount of drugs found or the possession of paraphernalia such as baggies or scales.
Seeking a reduction in charges can have a dramatic impact on a case and can open up treatment options, including Drug Diversion programs such as and Proposition 36 and PC-1000, for clients who might otherwise be facing significant jail time, fines, probation and other criminal penalties.
