Drug Offense Lawyers Los Angeles, CA
More than 60 Combined Years of Experience on Your Side
In California, most drug offenses are felonies. Possession of small amounts of marijuana can be charged as a misdemeanor, but drug crimes that involve large amounts of drugs or serious Schedule I, II, or III drugs carry lengthy prison sentences and thousands of dollars in fines. At Gibbons & Gibbons, our drug crime lawyers can help you fight the charges and protect your future in the Los Angeles County and Orange County areas.
Any time you are charged with a drug-related offense, you face the possibility of fines, jail time, and the difficulty of having a criminal record following you around for years to come. Do not take chances if you have been arrested on drug-related charges.

Drug Crime Defense Strategies
During your free consultation, our goal will be to help you understand your legal options and craft a strategy to work toward a more favorable outcome. As your representative, we will work with law enforcement and prosecutors to learn more about the circumstances of your arrest and look for advantages. For example, if law enforcement obtained evidence against you unlawfully, that evidence cannot be admitted into court.
Effective defenses against drug crimes include:
- No illegal substances were found: It is not uncommon for law enforcement to arrest someone on suspicion of possession. In these situations, requesting evidence can prove that they don’t have grounds to incriminate you of having illegal substances.
- Unlawful search and seizure: Police officers cannot obtain evidence against you without proper cause. During our investigation of your case, we may be able to access police footage (if there was any) and show that any evidence from this search must be thrown out.
- Lawful possession: If you had a prescription or some other legal reason for possessing the substances in question, you should not be charged as a criminal.
