Drug Offenses

San Diego Drug Crime Attorney

Drug Offenses in San Diego, California

As an experienced San Diego criminal defense lawyer, we aggressively defend clients facing drug charges throughout San Diego Count. Having worked in the Drug Unit as a Deputy District Attorney, we use our particular experience with drug offenses to defend our clients against misdemeanor and felony drug charges of all kinds. If you would like to undergo a free initial consultation, please contact the firm today at (619) 326-8161 or via our online case evaluation form.

Regardless of the circumstances of your case and whatever evidence law enforcement or the prosecuting attorney may say they have against you, consulting an attorney is one of the most important steps you can take. Even in a case that may seem entirely helpless, there may be ways that we can negotiate with the prosecution to lessen your charges or the penalties you may face, working toward alternative sentencing and helping you avoid imprisonment altogether. In addressing any San Diego drug crime case, our intention is always to reach the best possible outcome for our client. Following are some of the types of drug charges our firm handles:

  • Possession of marijuana or drug paraphernalia
  • Possession of cocaine, meth, heroin, ecstasy, or any other controlled substances
  • Prescription fraud (unlawful possession of prescription narcotics)
  • Possession with intent to distribute (i.e., large quantities of narcotics)
  • Drug cultivation or manufacturing
  • Trafficking or importing

At the Law Office of Chris Sohovich, we represent adults, juveniles and college students facing any type of drug charges in Southern California.

Criminal Defense Lawyers for San Diego Drug Charges

Most drug crimes carry mandatory minimum sentences for conviction. Prison sentences start at sixteen months and rise sharply for high-level and repeat offenses. When we take on a drug crime case, we strive to avoid prison time or jail time, especially for first-time offenders, by getting charges dismissed or suspended, and by negotiating pleas to lower offenses.
