The Importance of Hiring an Attorney for Your Case
Drug crimes are no light matter in California. Your life could forever be altered just by being charged with drug crimes, let alone the heavy fines and years of your life which may be taken if you are sent to prison on conviction. Other penalties and consequences can include mandatory drug treatment, probation and even restitution. Severity of penalties can be great based on things such as prior convictions, how much ecstasy or other illicit drug was involved, whether weapons were present, or if a child was involved.
Having to live with a criminal record is also a result of conviction. This can cause your life and livelihood to be much more difficult, making it hard to obtain a job, get loans for higher education or a car, or even in getting housing. You need a trained and experienced attorney to help you prepare a strong defense and fight for your rights.
