Laws On Drugs

There are going to be differences in the possible charges and punishments, depending upon the narcotics charges that you are facing. In some cases, you may be facing a small fine, such as if you were in possession of a small amount of marijuana for personal use. If you were in possession of additional marijuana or if it has been determined that you were going to distribute the marijuana for sale, you may be facing additional fines and the possibility of incarceration.

If you were in possession of additional marijuana or if it has been determined that you were going to distribute the marijuana for sale, you may be facing additional fines and the possibility of incarceration.

There may also be different factors which would determine what type of drug charges you are facing. This would not only include the amount of the narcotic that you had in your possession but also the area in which you were arrested. For example, if you were caught with narcotics inside of a school zone, you would be facing stiffer penalties than if you would have been caught outside of the school zone. Williams & Javellana, LLP can discuss the laws against drugs and charges with you, let you know the type of penalties that you may be facing and aggressively defend you, to have the charges reduced or dismissed if at all possible.

In many cases, drug charges can be successfully defended in a court of law because there were issues that occurred with the police. During a drug bust, there are often mistakes that are made by narcotics officers and if they are identified, it could have your case dismissed. Some of the different mistakes which may have been made by the narcotics officers include ignoring the rules that govern search and seizure in the state of California and the possibility for violating entrapment laws. In many cases, narcotics officers rely on police informants and this information could come from bogus informants, in which case the charges may be dropped. Falsifying police reports, giving false information to a judge to receive a search warrant and arresting people without existing evidence can also affect the case.

There may also be other defenses which are possible in your case, depending upon the circumstances. It is important for you to contact Williams & Javellana, LLP so that he can look into your case and see what can be done to have your charges dropped or reduced. Narcotics charges can be very serious and can have long-term implications which will affect you in numerous ways. Don’t allow it to do so.

Client Testimonials
Gold standard for professionalism and ethics. Extremely knowledgeable and proficient in handling complex cases. Attorney Javellana took painstaking hours building a civil case, (co-ownership/property rights) and then he presented overwhelming evidence at trial. Mr. Javellana was on point for 3 days at trial where he tactfully asserted a powerful presence in the courtroom and systematically picked apart the defendents and he was quick to respond to the dirty trickery of the defense attorney with undisputable legal arguments. As a result of Mr. Javellana's detailed and powerful representation, the opposing side had no chance. Mr. Javellana was extremely organized and detail oriented throughout. Mr. Javellana won the case across multiple points and most impressively he obtained a permanent injunction against the opposing party. Additionally, Mr. Javellana, represented me with two other cases where his professionalism and his relentless tactical drive continued with successful results. I highly recommend Mr. Javellana. J.M
