We Represent People Facing Methamphetamine Charges
Methamphetamine charges should be taken very seriously. Methamphetamine-related drugs like Ecstasy can have just as negative an effect on a person’s future. A meth conviction can result in difficulties obtaining employment, taking advantage of educational opportunities and can lead to deportation if you are not a citizen.
If you have a drug problem, we try to address the criminal and rehab issues together to avoid custody, minimize the charges and sentence. There may be drug treatment resolutions from diversion, to Prop 36 and Drug Court that vary in eligibility and program, but result in a dismissal.
The Approach We Take in Methamphetamine Cases
If you have only been charged with possessing enough methamphetamine for personal use and you have no prior convictions, it may be possible to negotiate diversion or other alternative sentencing like Proposition 36 or Drug Court. However, if you possess more than a personal use amount of crystal meth and it is considered for sale based on the amount, pay and owe sheets, ledgers, packaging material, cellphone messages or other evidence, you are ineligible for those resolutions unless we can negotiate a lesser possession charge.
We carefully examine the circumstances of your arrest and all evidence related to the search and seizure of evidence. If any evidence was obtained illegally, we will seek to suppress the evidence and any other information obtained as a result. The individual’s background and situation in addition to the facts of your case are important for defending and mitigating drug charges.
It is important that you do not make a statement to the police until you talk to an experienced attorney. Answers to law enforcement questions will be used against you later.
