Reducing or Dismissing Drug Charges in California

U.S. News Best Law FirmsAt The Worthington Law Centre, our first objective is to make the drug charges against you go away. Your defense attorney will make a careful analysis of the facts, the circumstances of your arrest, and your eligibility for diversion of the case under Proposition 36. If we can keep your case out of the criminal justice system, we’ll do that.

If we can base a suppression motion on facts indicating a lack of probable cause to search your car or problems with the search warrant, we stand a good chance of getting the charges dismissed because the government will not be able to introduce the evidence of a severe drug crime against you.

Sometimes we can negotiate favorable plea arrangements in drug cases; in other cases, we can present your defense to a jury at trial. In all cases, the ultimate goal is to protect you from punishment on the offenses charged under California or federal law.

Types of Drug Offenses

Examples of the kinds of drug cases our attorneys can handle include the following:

  • Marijuana or cocaine possession charges developed through the seizure of drugs during a traffic stop
  • Cases involving the cultivation of marijuana or manufacture of methamphetamine
  • Possession for sale of marijuana, cocaine or heroin
  • Illegal possession of prescription drugs such as OxyContin, Percocet or Valium
  • Medical marijuana cases, especially federal cases against California retailers or cultivators
  • Drug crimes involving enhanced penalties, such as operating a meth lab near a school or trafficking in drugs while in possession of a gun
  • Money laundering charges related to the alleged proceeds of drug sales
  • State or federal asset forfeiture cases
  • Juvenile drug cases
  • Conspiracy charges in high-volume federal drug cases
