Years of Experience on Your Side

Sacramento Lawyer Defending Against Drug Crimes

Drug charges can mean hefty penalties, including jail time, substantial fines and a black mark on your criminal record. If you have been arrested for a drug or DUI offense, you need representation from a Sacramento defense lawyer who understands the criminal justice system from all sides.

I am Dick Margarita, a criminal defense attorney with more than 30 years of experience in public service. As a former Law Enforcement Officer, Prosecutor and as an Adjunct Professor at California State University, Sacramento (CSUS), I have a deep understanding of police procedures and investigative strategies. I will put this knowledge and my more than 19 years of experience as an attorney to work for you in your drug case.

Helping Build a Strong Defense Against Criminal Charges

When you hire me for your criminal defense, I will evaluate all the facts of your case, including police records, evidence, and drug and blood alcohol tests. I will also investigate diligently to determine if investigative misconduct resulted in exculpatory evidence being left out of the case preparation by the prosecuting authority. If further investigation is needed, I will utilize skilled criminal investigators to gather information that can be used to strengthen your case. If your rights were violated or there were law enforcement errors made at any time during your arrest, I will use that information to help get your charges decreased or dropped.

A Defense Attorney With DEA Experience

I have several years of experience serving on the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the Major Narcotics Bureau of the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department, making me uniquely qualified to handle drug cases. Count on me for professional and tenacious defense in an array of drug charges, from trafficking and manufacturing or cultivation to possession of marijuana, methamphetamines and medical marijuana.

I also represent physicians, dentists, nurses, pharmacists and other medical professionals facing investigations or prosecution under the diversion program. Additionally, I can represent medical professionals in licensing hearings and help ensure compliance with state and federal regulations.
