Long Beach Drug Charge Lawyer
If you are being investigated, or may be charged or have been charged with a drug offense, you need powerful legal representation from an attorney who will take immediate action. The duty of law enforcement investigators is to find evidence of wrong-doing, gather statements and evidence of guilt and build a case strong enough for a conviction.
Anything you say even as a joke can be taken as an admission of guilt and used against you. You should not talk with investigators or prosecutors without your attorney. If you've already been charged the prosecution has constructed its case and is satisfied that it has enough evidence to get a conviction. The Law Office of Anthony J. Falangetti has decades of experience in drug crime investigations and is prepared to use every legal remedy in our arsenal to help you.
What Constitutes A Drug Crime
Drug offenses are numerous, but generally mean any criminal offense involving a "controlled substance". This is any substance that is regulated by a federal or state government, particularly a prescription drug or an illegal drug.
Drug crimes include prescription fraud, and the use, distribution, sale, possession, trafficking, cultivation or manufacturing of drugs. Depending upon your prior criminal history, the type of charge and the amount of drug(s) involved, conviction of any of these can result in severe penalties including life imprisonment.
As former prosecutors who have successfully convicted numerous individuals of these crimes, we are very familiar with how a prosecutor builds a case against a defendant. As we also know where to look for the weaknesses in the prosecution's case and the most effective methods of refuting the evidence this gives us an edge which most other defense attorneys don't have.
