Redwood City Drug Crimes Lawyer

Legal Help Available 7 days a week

The penalties for drug crimes in California can vary depending on the kind of drug, quantity of drug or if there was intent to sell. Depending on the circumstances around your arrest you could be facing either a misdemeanor charge or felony charge. Whether you are facing a simple possession charge or a more serious transportation or trafficking charge, you need an experienced attorney to defend your rights and help you get the best possible result for your situation. At the Law Offices of M. Gabriela Guraiib, our drug crime attorney in Redwood City is extremely dedicated and always puts our clients first.

Drug crime convictions may result in severe penalties, including jail or prison sentences, large fines, and other consequences. Whenever possible, we seek to have clients sentenced to drug rehabilitation, rather than jail time. Because each situation is unique, we recommend scheduling a consultation to get advice for your specific circumstances.

Don't face these charges alone. Contact our criminal defense attorney and schedule your free consultation today!

Evaluating Your Arrest

Our Redwood City drug crime lawyer will carefully evaluate your case and how evidence was gathered to look for any possible mistakes by law enforcement officers.

We make sure your rights are protected throughout the legal process.
