Cocaine Arrest Lawyer & Attorney San Diego
Charged with cocaine or crack possession in San Diego County?
Over the years we have in both Superior Court and U.S. District Court on a daily basis worked with and against these prosecutors in providing experienced, aggressive legal representation for cocaine and crack cocaine defendants. Many of our clients do not wind up behind bars. Our lawyers and attorneys use proven defense tactics and understanding of the ins and outs of complicated drug laws have enabled us to convince authorities not to file charges, agree to alternate forms of prosecution or reduce the seriousness of charges in many cases. We have – in every courthouse in San Diego County – won dismissals, plea-bargained negotiations and acquittals in persons charged with a variety of drug crimes.
We have familiarized ourselves with all of the ramifications of recent laws that have passed in regards to how sentencing parameters are carried out in federal court, historically the domain of severe punishment for cocaine offenders. We understand that the role of a lawyer in drug crime cases is not just to contest the charges, but also win for our clients the most successful outcome in terms of drug treatment, diversion from prosecution and creative sentencing options.
The circumstances of your case are important and will eventually determine, in large part, how significant the penalty you face, be it a referral to a treatment program to a prison term. In order to allow us to put all of our resources at your disposal it is vitally important that you contact us as soon as possible so that we can evaluate your case and determine what your best legal options are. If you believe that you are going to be charged with a cocaine drug crime or have been arrested on such a charge it is crucial to your defense that you invoke your Constitutional right to contact us before making and statement or volunteering any information that can eventually be used against you and increase the penalties you may face.
Whether it be snorted surreptitiously as a “party drug” by young professionals or smoked cheaply in crack houses cocaine is a Schedule II drug that is widespread in San Diego County. It is also one of the drugs prioritized for prosecution by state and federal authorities here. The area has long been a center of cocaine activity because of its proximity to the Mexican border and smugglers, the carefree lifestyle enjoyed by many and the seemingly endless supply of the drug, as evidenced by continual headlines about large-scale busts. Our legal team has defended many local residents who have fallen prey to this drug and found themselves facing criminal charges that put their freedom, livelihood and family relationships in peril. It is no accident that the local U.S. Attorney’s Office and the District Attorney’s Office have been at the forefront of cocaine prosecutions. Contact us today if you've been arrested for any cocaine or crack cocaine charge.
