  • Drug importation

The specific charges in your case will determine the penalties you face and prior convictions will bring about harsher punishments. Loss of your driver's license, stiff fines and time spent in jail or prison can be the result of conviction on a drug crime. Law enforcement will take possession of your property and money in some instances. Certain offenses will be prosecuted as federal crimes, resulting in extremely large fines and lengthy prison sentences. It is therefore important that your attorney be fully prepared to take your case through to a positive outcome, no matter where your case is being tried.

Attorney Mendez's office concentrates only on criminal defense cases and takes pride in providing knowledgeable and seasoned legal services to clients. Experience has shown that drug charges can, in many cases, be effectively defended. An individual can be charged with possessing drugs that were not factually theirs. At times, the police can be guilty of an illegal search and seizure which may result in the evidence against you not being admitted into court. Law enforcement investigations can be incorrectly or poorly conducted, leading to a lack of evidence to prove you are guilty.

It is important to act quickly so that the firm can do the full homework needed to prepare and executive an effective defense strategy in your case.

When you or a loved one has been accused of any drug crime, contact a Downey drug crime attorney for committed legal protection.
