Charged With a Drug Crime? Protect Your Future - Choose a Lawyer Known for Success

Oceanside Heroin Lawyer

Facing charges for heroin? Call my firm at once.

Since the mid 1990's, heroin use in the United States has seen an exponential increase of use among people of all walks of life. Coupled with the advent of Oxycontin and other powerful opiate-based pain killers onto the market, and heroin use has risen further, due to the similar nature of the drug, and its relatively widespread availability.

Often, Oxycontin users will turn to heroin when they cannot obtain Oxycontin. At my firm, the Law Firm of Richard L. Duquette, I have seen firsthand the effect that heroin use has had on our community and have represented many individuals who have been caught up in the dangerous and illegal world of heroin use. Criminal charges are almost always inevitable once one gets involved with heroin and other painkillers.

You need a criminal defense attorney on your side who is well-connected within the legal community, and has a reputation for success. I am proud of my many successful defense cases for my clients. Read my testimonials from my clients if you want to be confident you are contacting the right lawyer for your defense. I am ready to take action for you now.

Depending on the amount of heroin you or a loved one has been charged with possessing, buying or selling, and the accused's prior criminal history, the penalties can be very severe, with prison time and thousands of dollars of fines as a consequence. In some circumstances, the courts have been open to allowing drug treatment as a mitigating factor in sentencing.

Please take the time to call me so that we can discuss your particular circumstances, whether it is for yourself or for a loved one. The consequences for a conviction of heroin possession, or distribution can be severe and have lifelong ramifications. Don't face these charges without first consulting an experienced, qualified Oceanside criminal defense attorney.
