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

While possession of less than an ounce of marijuana is just an infraction, unlawfully possessing any amount of any other drug will land you in serious legal hot water. You may have to pay anywhere from $100 to thousands of dollars, and if you’re not a US citizen, you could be deported. Fortunately, you can call on Chambers Law Firm for expert help. As an experienced drug possession attorney in Long Beach CA, Dan is intimately familiar with the law and knows just how to argue cases 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 Long Beach CA drug possession lawyer can provide an excellent chance of getting your charges dropped or securing an acquittal. For example, your attorney might present evidence that police found the drugs during an illegal search of your person, vehicle, or residence, in which case they are not admissible evidence.

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 you have a quantity of drugs that is normal for the “average” user to hold. As a tenacious Long Beach CA drug possession attorney with superior investigative skills, you can rely on Dan E. Chambers to leave no stone unturned when building a strong defense against any type of possession charges.

Drug Diversion Programs
