“I can make the difference between jail and freedom.” – Joel Bailey

California has very serious penalties for almost all drug violations, ranging from fines and loss of driving privileges to years in prison. Although the law is constantly changing on the use and prosecution of drugs, why take a chance? Protect yourself and your future by calling a competent, knowledgeable attorney today.

When arrested for a drug crime, it's important to build the strongest defense possible, as early as possible. With more than 25 years of experience defending people against drug offenses and other criminal charges, I look for every possible avenue to keep my client out of jail after a drug arrest. Police misconduct? Wrongful search and seizure? I work hard to protect your rights. If your rights have been violated, we may be able to suppress evidence or even have the case dismissed.

Don't Forfeit Your Rights
