Drug crimes span a broad range of offenses, from personal use to trafficking and cultivation. Regardless of the charge, the penalties can be severe. Federal drug crimes have mandatory minimum penalties, meaning the judge must impose at least the minimum sentence. Even someone who is addicted and just using drugs personally can find him or herself in prison if convicted.
The Law Office Of Andrew M. Stein provides drug defense representation from a lawyer with more than 30 years of experience. Attorney Stein has the experience to know when to negotiate with the prosecution and when to take cases to trial. When possible, he will argue for diversion programs such as drug court to keep first-time offenders or addicts out of jail.
You Want To Stay Out Of Jail Or Prison
You can come to the firm for defense against California state and federal drug charges such as possession, distribution, manufacturing, trafficking and conspiracy. Mr. Stein has experience with cases involving:
- Synthetic drugs
- Cocaine and crack
- Prescription drugs
When reviewing your case, Mr. Stein will examine the arrest report for any instances of illegal search and seizure. These violations of your constitutional rights are fairly common in drug cases. He will determine whether police had probable cause to stop you and conduct a search. If they did not have probable cause, he can file a motion to have the resulting evidence suppressed. If the judge grants the motion, he may be able to get the charges against you reduced or dismissed, depending on the specifics of the case.
