Los Angeles Federal Drug Crime Attorney – Criminal Defense Lawyer

You are probably watching this video because you or someone close to you has recently been arrested or indicted on a federal drug charge, or is already facing a federal drug charge in court. Being convicted of a federal drug charge can lead to imprisonment, loss of your job or professional license, disruption of your life and the life of your family, embarrassment, and shame.

Merely being charged with a federal drug offense can be traumatic for most people. Finding the right attorney to handle your case can be a matter of great importance. As in many, if not most cases, it does matter who your attorney is and how they handle your case. Effective representation of a client on a federal drug case requires great skill and knowledge as the procedures and sentencing rules on a federal drug case are entirely different than those cases in state court.
