Drug Crimes in Newport Beach

A Drug Crime can Negatively Affect Your Reputation

No one trusts drug users. At least, if you have recently been charged with a drug crime, it can suddenly feel that way. Bottom line: being accused of a drug crime can negatively affect your reputation – forever. Especially if you are just starting out as an adult and are building your professional reputation, having a conviction on your record can permanently limit your opportunities.

That is why it is important to have an attorney on your side who treats you like family. We understand that bad things sometimes happen to good people. We understand that you are in the middle of a stressful and potentially traumatic situation. At times like this, the last thing you need to worry about on top of everything else is your attorney’s opinion of you. We don’t judge our clients; we defend them aggressively.

Charges can be Brought at both the State and Federal Level

Approximately 50% of our firm’s practice is devoted to defending individuals facing drug crimes charges. We have helped people faced with drug crimes that include:

  • Drug sales
  • Ecstasy-related charges
  • Marijuana possession
  • Medical marijuana
  • Meth/methamphetamine
  • Prescription narcotics such as OxyContin and Vicodin

Drug crimes convictions can lead to prison time, probation, and expensive fines in addition to having a permanent impact on your reputation. Depending on the situation, charges can be brought at both the state and federal level. We have defended hundreds of clients against a variety of drug crimes charges at both the misdemeanor and felony level, and are prepared to defend you.
