Los Angeles Drug Crime Attorney
Arrested for a state or federal drug offense?
Are you facing drug charges in Los Angeles or the South Bay? If so, you will need an experienced and aggressive defense lawyer on your side. The "war on drugs" is ongoing and has the support of major political groups, law enforcement and State and Federal agencies.
Both California State and Federal prosecutors are now seeking major prison terms to carry out the political message of the war on drugs. If you are charged with a drug crime, the government will likely try to make an example of you with maximum sentencing including fines, long prison terms, or both.
The Importance of Hiring an Experienced Lawyer
Drug cases are often won or lost based upon the legality of the initial police contact, search and arrest. At Okabe & Haushalter, we have extensive experience in this area of law. In fact, attorneys Ryan T. Okabe and Mark J. Haushalter co-author the California Loose-leaf Search and Seizure Handbook, a leading authority on this subject in California.
