Arrested for prescription drugs in Oceanside?

North San Diego County Criminal Lawyer for Prescription Drug Charges

An alarming number of people have become addicted to prescription drugs over the past few years. The number of arrests related to prescription drug crimes, such as possession, fraud in obtaining prescriptions, and possession with intent to sell have also increased. The epidemic with the rise of Oxycontin use and other prescription pain killers such as Hydrocodone, Oxycodone, Morphine, Dilaudid, Hydromorphone, Fentanyl, Sufentanyl has certainly driven the number of arrests related to prescription drugs higher over the past decade in California and Oceanside.

If you or a loved one is facing charges related to prescription drug use or abuse, please call my offices today for a free, private and confidential consultation. Many times, people are afraid to come forward and ask for help fearing reprisal or the loss of respect of their family, friends or their peers.

I have been practicing criminal defense law for 34 years. I do not sit in judgment of my clients, and I am passionate about and dedicated to helping my clients overcome their problems. Many times, the courts will allow for a diversion program whereby the accused offender is allowed to undergo treatment for an addiction or dependence as a mitigating factor for sentencing. If there were mistakes made by the police, I will certainly discover them in the course of litigation and seize upon the opportunity to have the case dismissed or reduced for lack of evidence.

Contact my offices today so that we can begin the process of facing the charges together. See for yourself why I have been rated as one of San Diego's best lawyers and highly qualified by my peers.
