What are my Legal Options?
A drug conviction can have a severe impact upon your life. Along with jail time, you may face significant fines, an extensive probationary period, as well as a laundry list of penalties in your everyday life – not to mention the emotional and mental anguish such an event often brings. This is why it is critical to speak with a knowledgeable attorney, who can guide you through your options and aggressively defend your rights.
Drug Diversion programs, such as Proposition 36 and PC-1000, offer a positive alternative to a potentially grim verdict. Provided the defendant successfully completes an extensive treatment program and a scheduled period of drug testing, charges could be reduced or waved altogether. The extent, intensity, and eligibility of these programs will greatly depend on any previous drug related activity.
Drug diversion programs are just two of the many resources the dedicated people at the Law Offices of Daniel E. Kann will bring to bear in your defense. Consider the following when deciding to call:
- We will motion to suppress any evidence obtained by illegal search and seizure, coerced statements, pats downs, or failing to announce your Miranda Rights

- We will actively negotiate with prosecutors for a reduction in charges
