Sacramento Defense Lawyer for Marijuana Possession Charges
Marijuana crimes can lead to harsh penalties and consequences. Even a minor offense conviction can lead to difficulty in applying for jobs, education and housing. When faced with any type of marijuana charge, protect your rights by consulting an experienced criminal defense lawyer. Many states are legalizing marijuana, but Federal Law still contains criminal penalties for marijuana crimes.
Experienced Representation for All Marijuana-Related Charges
I am Sacramento defense attorney Dick Margarita. I have extensive experience defending clients charged with marijuana crimes involving:
- Possession and possession for sale
- Drug trafficking
- Medical marijuana
- Driving under the influence of marijuana
I Know the System
My experience includes working on the prosecutorial and criminal defense side of cases. Over a span of more than 30 years, I have worked for the FBI, the DEA as a Senior Special Agent, the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department and as a Sacramento County Deputy District Attorney. I have seen firsthand how law enforcement and prosecutors operate and where the case weaknesses lie. In addition, during 1990, I was the Deputy Incident Commander for the CAMP (Campaign Against Marijuana Plantation) program in California.
In every marijuana case I handle as a private defense attorney, I dissect the investigative and prosecutorial procedures that were utilized. I attack those weaknesses and fight for the best outcomes possible for my clients. Through my background, I have gained the understanding and knowledge necessary to analyze and attack weak police procedures and prosecutor strategies.
In addition to my hands-on experience, I have a thorough understanding of search and seizure law from all perspectives possible. With a well-rounded view of the system, I can help you fight back against any marijuana charge.
