Irvine, CA Drug Crime Defense Attorney

Our Law Office has a long history of successfully handling the defense of clients charged with various drug offenses under the Controlled Substance Act. The Controlled Substance Act is a consolidation of laws that regulate the possession, manufacturing and distribution of: 

  • Narcotics
  • Stimulants
  • Depressants
  • Hallucinogens
  • Anabolic steroids, and
  • Chemicals used in the illicit production of controlled substances or illegal drugs. 

Drug cases are open to many different defenses, because they often involve search warrants, car searches, undercover informants, cops posing as drug dealers, etc. Having an Irvine, CA and Orange County Defense Lawyer defending you is one way you can rest assured that any violation of your Constitutional rights during a drug bust will be found and used to your advantage.

The Way Drug Penalties Vary in California and Federal Courts

First time drug offenders usually qualify for a short drug treatment program. When the charge involves possession for sales, or transportation, prison becomes the prosecutor's goal. Penalties for schedule 1 narcotic offenses are severe. Depending on the amount of narcotic seized, a first offense conviction could mean a prison term of up to 20 years, plus fines! If you have been convicted of 2 previous offenses, you could be facing life in prison. 

Our Irvine, CA and Orange County Criminal Defense Lawyer has handled many cases where the Medical Marijuana laws have exonerated his clients, even when they have been growing more than 300 plants. 

If you or a loved one has been charged with a drug offense, please contact the Irvine, CA and Orange County drug crime defense lawyer at our firm as soon as you can. Do not attempt to face the court system without representation from a criminal defense attorney such as Mr. McDonald, who has experience in successfully defending clients charged with drug crimes. He may possibly be able to reduce the penalties or have your case dismissed. 

You can discuss all of the options available to you with Mr. McDonald, our Irvine, CA and Orange County drug crime defense lawyer.
