California law imposes several penalties (including jail time) for the possession of cocaine or any cocaine base with the intention of selling it. The Health and Safety Code Section 11350 rates possession of cocaine as a criminal offence, unless such possession is supported by a valid prescription from a licensed medical practitioner.
Possession of cocaine can lead to a one year sentence in jail. Given the seriousness of the felony and the rampart possession and sale of the drug across Los Angeles, it is necessary for you to acquaint yourself with and seek assistance from a qualified, competent and experienced Los Angeles Cocaine Lawyer.

Detailed Subject Knowledge

From re-interviewing the local witnesses to filing charges on behalf of an illegal search and seizure, we analyze all angles and perspectives that help our clients obtain an advantage at all proceedings.
Premium Rights to Visit and Consult
Facing drug charges traumatizes people and the situation gets worse when the accused does not have access to their lawyer. At Premier Federal Criminal Defenders, we have exclusive rights to visit our clients and offer consulting services to them and their families during any stage of the proceeding following the immediate arrest. We’re always a phone call away!
In most of the drug cases, especially juvenile cases, it is easier to intervene before the commencement of the trial and prevent the charges from being filed altogether. We evaluate the potential case, as well as any criminal charges it might constitute. Through early intervention, we have successfully defended most our clients from facing litigation and penalties.
Evaluate ALL Options
At Premier Federal Criminal Defenders, we do not believe in a one-shoe-fits-all approach. All cases and clients are different. We offer personalized help for all our clients. This includes evaluating all possible second options and their subsequent impact on their lives. We are committed to providing a true and complete picture of the final outcome, rather than focusing on a few “preferred” options.
Release on Bail
If you have a loved one serving a sentence on account of possession of cocaine, we help arrange a bail hearing. This helps in reducing the bail and securing an early release. We have assisted several in mates in custody during their jail term and have also stood by their families during such times.
If you or your loved one has been sentenced under a court of law, we’ll help you file an appeal under an appellant court. Our prior experience and expertise have helped us yield favorable results for our clients, resulting in an acquittal from all charges under the appeal.
