If you have been arrested for drug possession, the first thing you should do is contact a skilled Vista drug lawyer who can help you fight the charges you may be facing. It is important to realize that anything you say to police may be used against you and by speaking to investigators without an attorney present, you may accidentally make the charges against you more serious. For example, a wrong slip of the tongue could easily make drug possession charges turn into drug sale charges.
Minors are at particular risk when it comes to drug offenses because even a misdemeanor possession conviction can result in the loss of driving privileges for a full year.
Aside from defending you against drug charges, a skilled attorney like Peter M. Liss can help minimize the potential penalties you may face by working with the police and prosecutes to ensure you are put into a drug diversion program, rather than facing jail time.
Anyone facing possession charges should call our office at (760) 643-4050 to schedule a consultation where we can discuss your case and any diversion programs you may qualify for.
