New laws are in the works in regard to Marijuana due to the new law that legalized use of medical marijuana. I will post them as they come in.

Drugs Crimes-

Include sales, distribution, manufacturing and use. Prescription drug consumption or possession illegally. No matter what the cause of the accusation is, arrest will follow with misdemeanor or felony charges. California takes drug crimes extremely seriously, and penalties can be severe. The system is not efficient. It is not designed for "swift justice." Indeed, some would say that it is not designed for "justice" at all. However I, as your Defense counsel will be prepared to stand and fight for my client, you, against public outcry; I will stand and fight for my client throughout his trial; and at the time final judgment is entered.

With the extensive amount of research I invest in my client's defense and with my vast experience in this area, I will give you the best defense possible. Call now. Don't wait! Don't waste time; the sooner I am called the better it is for you, I immediately start working with the prosecutors and start looking for ways to minimize your charges, if you haven't been charged yet, and if you have, I start my efforts on your behalf to minimize the punishment. I will never ask you to accept the plea bargain; I will always put in the time to defend your freedom and rights.
