Drug Possession in California
Long Beach Drug Crimes Defense Lawyer
If you are in possession of a controlled substance such as marijuana, heroin,
cocaine, LSD, or another illegal narcotic, then you could be subject to
criminal charges. Controlled substances are divided into five categories
called schedules in California, and depending on the schedule and amount
of controlled substance you are charged with possessing, you could face
a range of penalties upon conviction. Additional penalties that you could
face may result from the purpose for which you are in possession of these
substances. Whether your intent is for personal use or distribution will
determine the severity of penalties as well.
If you have been charged with possession of controlled substances, then
you may greatly benefit from the legal assistance of a criminal law specialist
from our firm. Our Long Beach criminal defense attorneys have the rare
and hard-earned distinction of being board certified in this practice
area, a feat that less than 5% of all lawyers in California have achieved.
This is a tremendous advantage that few other law firms can offer to their
clients, and it is important that you take advantage of this benefit.
Have you been arrested and charged with possession?
Don't expect to be treated leniently in the state of California if
you have been charged with this crime. The laws are strict and tough,
and it is likely that you will be prosecuted to the full extent of the
law. As an example, if you have been found with even a small amount of
cocaine in your possession, you can be charged with a felony. Felony convictions
bring severe consequences in this state, some of which can affect your
ability to obtain a job in the future or even a place to live. Even if
you do not serve any jail time, these potential damages to your life and
reputation will continue to create problems for you as you attempt to
go on with your life.

that are used to manufacture illegal substances, then you most likely
will face charges as well. You need to find skilled
