Los Angeles Criminal Drug Charges Defense Attorney

Strong and Effective Defense Against California Drug Crime Charges

While any criminal conviction is a serious matter, a drug crime conviction will have serious, lasting negative consequences on many areas of your life. Even a misdemeanor conviction for drug possession can cause you to lose college financial aid, have difficulty finding an apartment, and damage your prospects at work.

If you’ve been charged with any drug crime, work with an experienced attorney who can build the strongest defense possible.

I am criminal defense attorney Marc A. Legget. I have been defending people against state and federal drug crime charges in the Los Angeles area for more than 23 years. With decades of criminal trial experience, I understand the local courts and the local judges. I defend against any and all California drug crime charges, including:

  • Misdemeanor and felony drug possession of illegal drugs (meth, cocaine, crack, heroin, ecstasy) or illegal possession of legal prescription drugs, including medical marijuana
  • Possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell
  • Misdemeanor and felony drug sales
  • Transporting drugs and drug smuggling
  • Drug manufacturing or cultivation
  • Drug trafficking
  • Operating an illegal medical marijuana dispensary
  • Possible 3-strikes cases if you have prior serious or violent felony charges on your record

Whether you are facing a first-time criminal charge for marijuana possession, or you have repeat drug crime charges, I can help you fight the charges against you. Contact my Los Angeles defense firm today.

I understand all the state and federal laws relating to possession, transport and sale of drugs as well as the operation of medical marijuana dispensaries. With the latest change in regulations involving medical marijuana, I am equipped to handle cases challenging the closure of dispensaries and possible criminal charges against owners.

Whenever possible, I try to get my clients into drug courts where Proposition 36 rehabilitation, deferred entry of judgment, or diversion is an option. If you have a clean record other than misdemeanor drug possession charges, I may be able to have your arrest expunged from your record after completion of your sentence. This can be extremely important to your future as many employers are leery of hiring people with drug crimes on their record.
