China Drug Crime Defense Lawyer

What is a drug crime?

A drug crime is a criminal act involving the manufacturing, trafficking, possession, or sale of an unlawful narcotic. Unlawful narcotics include: heroin, LSD, cocaine, crack, marijuana, methamphetamines, and unauthorized prescription medications such as OxyContin or Vicodin. Our China criminal defense lawyer are experienced in handling China drug smuggling and China drug trafficking case. We are familiar with China drug law and China criminal law.

Frequently Committed Drug Crimes

The state of California has zero tolerance when it comes to drug related offenses. All drug crimes are taken seriously by law enforcement and prosecuted to the fullest extent. Commonly committed drug crimes include: drug possession, drug possession with intent to sell, possession of drug paraphernalia, drug manufacturing, drug trafficking, drug distribution, drug cultivation, and money laundering.

Although recent years have brought many changes in China drug laws, those changes have not lessened the importance of obtaining reliable, experienced legal counsel. In fact, depending on the charges against you and a range of circumstances, our China drug crimes attorneys may be better able to help you by seeking alternative sentencing or other manageable outcomes than in the past.

Proven Representation for People Facing Possession, Sale or Trafficking Charges

We provide resourceful, effective drug crime defense in trial courts or appeal courts, for people charged with offenses ranging from simple possession to drug trafficking. Our experience extends to numerous cases involving:

1. Marijuana possession, sale or related offenses
2. Cocaine possession or sales, including crack cocaine charges
3. Methamphetamine ("crystal meth") possession, distribution, trafficking or manufacture
4. Charges arising from unlawful possession or sale of prescription drugs
5. Other drug charges involving heroin, Ecstasy, and a full range of other controlled substances

Aggressive Defense Informed by Decades of Drug Case Experience

For many people across the spectrum of pursuits and professions, a criminal record containing a drug conviction can be personally crippling. We are absolutely committed to delivering our best effort, leaving no stone unturned as we seek the best possible outcome in your drug case.

Examples of our China lawyer's drug case successes for our clients include:

1. Case dismissals prior to trial on matters of law, including illegality of the search and seizure — a particular area of strength for our former high-level prosecutors
2. A range of not-guilty verdicts at trial and cases in which charges were successfully reduced or consequences mitigated substantially

Drug crime charges and legal penalties will depend upon the type of crime committed, the type of drug under possession, and the amount of the drug under possession. If the defendant is a repeat offender, or if the defendant solicited to minors, he/she may be subject to enhanced criminal charges and sentencing.

Due to the life-altering legal consequences that are involved, it is always in a person’s best interest to obtain the services of a criminal defense attorney who has the legal background and knowledge it takes to successfully fight drug crime charges.
