Los Angeles Drug Crime Lawyer

Bilingual Legal Assistance for Complex Drug Offense Charges

While recreational and medical marijuana have been legalized in Los Angeles, California, the state is still tough on all other drug-related activity.

These are the activities involving controlled substance such as cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, and others as well as unauthorized prescription drugs such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, and more.

Controlled substances such as these fall under both state and federal law and enormous manpower continues to be used in locating, investigating, and prosecuting drug offenders.

Being accused of drug crimes can lead to serious consequences, especially when they involve large quantities of narcotics and prescription drugs.

In any drug crimes, however, whether it is a small possession charge or federal trafficking charges, the quality and dedication of your defense will play a major role in the outcome of your criminal case.

That is why we urge you to rely on the Los Angeles criminal defense attorneys at Castaneda Law, APC, where your criminal case will be handled with a meticulous attention to detail in search of evidence that will work in your favor.

If you are facing charges with a drug offense, your first step should be to hire a Los Angeles criminal defense lawyer right away.
