First Time Drug Offenders in San Diego
San Diego Drug Crime Attorneys
If you have been arrested and charged with a drug crime, the first and
most important thing to know is that your future is at stake and you need
to act quickly by getting in touch with an experienced
San Diego drug crime lawyer. You should politely and respectfully exercise your right to silence and
not speak with anyone about it. If you answer questions or speak with
law enforcement officers or investigators, they may use what you say to
cancel certain rights which you may not be aware of. So gently decline
to speak with them and then directly get in touch with us at The Law Offices
of Kerry L. Armstrong, APLC to discuss your situation.
Being convicted of simple
marijuana possession can send you to jail for months or even years, result in fines and send
you to a treatment program, depending on conviction and the nature of
the charges. Even conviction of a misdemeanor offense can give you a criminal
record which can make it very hard to get a job, seek loans for college
or obtain housing. However, our firm can aggressively seek probation or
drug counseling for a first time offender and lower the charges against
you, including removing the charge from appearing on your record.
How can The Law Offices of Kerry L. Armstrong help?
In every unique case, there are details and circumstances which we can
explore to build a strong defense. We do our own investigation of the
case and then work out a legal strategy, which may include negotiating
a plea or going to trial. Once that strategy is in place, it is a matter
of pursuing it vigorously for the best possible outcome.
If we have to go to trial, you can be assured that our
San Diego criminal defense lawyers are tough and vigorous about upholding your rights. We are experienced
and aggressive negotiators and may be able to get charges dropped or mitigated
if your circumstances allow.
