Help from an experienced drug possession attorney in Huntington Beach CA is just a phone call away.

While possessing less than an ounce of marijuana has effectively been decriminalized in California, just about every other scenario involving unlawful possession of a controlled substance subjects you to serious legal penalties. Depending on the circumstances of the case you could be facing jail time. You will definitely want an experienced drug possession attorney in Huntington Beach CA on your side. Chambers Law Firm is just such an attorney. With over 20 years of experience to his credit, he can provide superior representation for crimes involving:

  • Marijuana
  • Hashish
  • Cocaine
  • Meth
  • Heroin
  • Ecstasy
  • LSD
  • Prescription drugs (Vicodin, Codeine, Oxycontin, etc.)
  • And more

Disproving Possession Charges

In order to prove possession, prosecutors must prove that:

  • You had the drug on your person or in an area you had a right to control
  • You knew the drug was there
  • You knew it was a controlled substance
  • There was enough drug to be used
  • Evidence as to the above points was obtained legally

By securing evidence to disprove or cast doubt on any one of these points, your Huntington Beach CA drug possession lawyer can provide an excellent chance of getting your charges dropped or securing an acquittal. For instance, your lawyer might introduce evidence that proves the bag, car, or jacket where the drugs were found was recently borrowed by another individual and you didn’t know the drugs were there.

Possession vs Possession for Sale

If police and prosecutors believe you possessed drugs for the purpose of selling them, you will face much more serious penalties than you would for simply having drugs for your personal use. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to tell the two crimes apart, as the difference is often based on circumstantial evidence that is open to interpretation, such as whether the drug looks like it is packaged for resale. You can rely on experienced Huntington Beach CA drug possession attorney Dan E. Chambers to investigate all possibilities for getting any possession for sale charges reduced to possession for personal use to help you secure a more positive outcome to your case.
