Xanax abuse and addiction have been on the rise in California for several years now, and law enforcement authorities have a high awareness of the problem. State and federal laws intended to curb illegal use and trafficking in this and other dangerous prescription drugs are strict. Even having a few pills may lead to a felony charge and lengthy incarceration.
If you have been arrested on any Los Angeles Xanax charge — or an offense involving OxyContin, Percocet, Ritalin or another controlled pharmaceutical medication — you need a dedicated criminal defense lawyer on your side. You may also need treatment to help you recover from a painful, life-threatening addiction, and obtaining productive outcomes is a clear strength of our law practice.
We understand the many ways that a person can become involved with Xanax or other prescription drugs. Often, use of a legally prescribed drug gradually gets out of control. The cycle of Xanax use or use of any other anti-anxiety or anti-depressant drug can be brutal, and many people try multiple other substances to gain emotional relief, sometimes with tragic consequences. Some people also turn to prescription drug sales to support their habits.
Drug crime defense at all levels of the justice system is a focus at our respected law firm. Whether you have been charged with drug possession, possession for sale or trafficking in narcotics, our firm can be a tremendous asset.
We treat our clients and their families with compassion and consistently present all viable options for fighting conviction and getting our clients the help they need. As a former prosecutor, attorney Daniel R. Perlman has deep insight into what it takes to negotiate an outcome that can help you or a loved one move forward in life.
