Our first step is to develop a comprehensive defense plan
Crimes for drug production are frequently accompanied by additional charges, such as:
- Possession of a controlled substance

With our many years of experience, you can assure you are working with a drug crime attorney in San Clemente CA who will find the right defense for the charges you are facing, no matter what they are.
Your case is not hopeless
One reason people choose not to hire a drug crime lawyer is because they assume that with a mountain of evidence against them, they are out of options. This is false. Depending on the specifics of your case, we could work to how that evidence against you was illegally obtained and therefor not admissible, can show that you were not aware of the drugs, or use any other number of defense options.
In the event that the evidence against you is insurmountable, we can work to have the charges reduced. This is called a plea bargain and could result in you serving no time in jail or a very short amount of time, versus the decades you could get if you face trial and are found guilty, or if you plead guilty without a deal in place.
We will consider diversion options
As a drug crime attorney in San Clemente CA who is also a specialist in innovative sentencing, we will not overlook the likelihood of drug diversion in your case. If you were solely making medicines for your own use, this choice should automatically be on the table.
Otherwise, in order to participate in drug diversion, we would have to persuade the prosecution to let you plead to a simple possession charge. We will vigorously advocate for drug diversion whenever the facts of the case warrant, because it provides for drug rehabilitation instead of jail time and can assist keep a conviction off your record.
