Fresno County Drug Crime Defense Attorneys Fighting For You

Drug crimes are aggressively prosecuted in California — sometimes too aggressively. Individuals can be wrongfully accused of drug crimes as a result of an illegal search and seizure, an illegal sting operation, false information provided by an informant or a multitude of other mistakes by arresting officers.

At Schweitzer & Davidian, our criminal law lawyers represent individuals throughout California's Central Valley and beyond who face a wide variety of drug charges involving marijuana, cocaine, LSD, methamphetamine, Ecstasy, prescription drugs and more.

California's Uniform Controlled Substances Act divides drug offenses into five separate categories or "schedules," with Schedule 1 crimes being the most serious and carrying the most severe penalties. We have a lengthy record of successfully defending clients against the full spectrum of drug charges, including:

  • Possession of a controlled substance
  • Transportation and sales of a controlled substance
  • Drug trafficking
  • Drug manufacturing
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia

Central Valley Lawyers Who Understand California Drug Laws

We will review every aspect of your arrest carefully and conduct our own investigation to determine if your constitutional rights were violated. Our comprehensive knowledge of California criminal laws allows us to catch law enforcement authorities who have overstepped their boundaries, or identify prosecutors who are attempting to obtain a conviction with weak evidence. We are experienced trial attorneys who are always prepared to litigate when it is in a client's best interest to do so.

In some cases, the best strategy is to negotiate for reduced charges or alternative sentencing such as completion of a drug addiction program. We have a complete understanding of how much flexibility prosecutors have in each case and work to minimize the impact of drug charges on your life.
