Heroin use has made a serious comeback in Southern California and across our country in recent years, despite widespread knowledge of its nearly unparalleled addictive powers and potential for fatal overdose. Factors include new inroads made by heroin traffickers with connections in Afghanistan and elsewhere, as well as the popularity of other addictive opiates such as OxyContin.
If you have been charged with possession of heroin, many circumstances can influence whether you will face a misdemeanor or felony charge. This could be the difference between eligibility for treatment, diversion and/or probation and having to do years in a California jail or state prison.
At the Law Offices of Daniel R. Perlman, a former prosecutor now focused exclusively on criminal defense will do everything possible to protect your record and future. Whether you were arrested by city police or federal agents, Mr. Perlman has the experience and commitment to fight the charge or negotiate in a compelling fashion on your behalf.
In addition to experience handling many serious drug cases, a clear strength of our firm is our knowledge of treatment centers throughout Southern California. We know the best ways to convince the district attorney, federal prosecutor or judge that you should get help rather than suffer devastating punishment.
If you are accused of possessing heroin for sale or trafficking in heroin — perhaps after a border arrest — you need a proven defense lawyer you can trust to go the distance for you. We are prepared to investigate, expose any violation of your constitutional rights and pursue every option in your defense.
Our experience includes juvenile drug defense, advocacy for immigrants and work on behalf of people all across the cultural spectrum of life in California. If you or a loved one must cope with Los Angeles heroin charges or any other drug offense, please contact us now for a free consultation.
