Drug Charges


Drug Charges Can Ruin Your Life

If not handled right from the start, a serious felony drug charge can land you in state prison for as many years as a murder conviction.  In addition to lengthy state prison or local jail sentences, drug charges can result in a permanent criminal record, destroying your ability to find or keep your job.  If you are in school, a criminal drug conviction may mean expulsion or a loss of your student loans.  Drug charges can also result in your driver’s license being suspended by the DMV.

What do you need if you are charged with a drug crime?

First, you need to have your questions answered by an experienced criminal defense attorney with more than a decade of court work and trial experience handling drug charges. You need a criminal defense attorney who will explain how the system works and what you can expect.  You need an attorney who you can call with your questions and who will work to obtain information for you, so that you can make intelligent decisions about your case, family, and your life.  We at Weisberg & Zukher understand that drugs affect your whole family and are experienced in working with children addicted to drugs.
