A controlled substance typically falls into one of two categories: illicit drugs and prescription medication. Most people think drug charges involve substances like cocaine, heroin or methamphetamines, but individuals are increasingly being prosecuted for illegally possessing medication such as Percocet, OxyContin and steroids.
At Traback & Du Bois, we defend individuals against charges of illegal possession of prescription drugs in Oakland, Pleasanton and surrounding areas of Northern California.
Our representation is founded in vast knowledge of drug possession laws and skill in various facets of criminal law. Our attorneys each have decades of experience as criminal defense lawyers as well as career history in prosecution. This dual-sided understanding helps us anticipate the arguments and evidence that the opposing party will bring against our clients, and develop strategies to challenge those arguments before we even enter the courtroom.
Pleasanton Prescription Drug Offense Lawyers
A conviction of illegal prescription drug possession can result in penalties that range from probation time to a mandatory prison sentence. Whether the charges are misdemeanors or felonies, our firm can help.
We represent people who have been accused of:
- Doctor shopping (seeking care from multiple physicians to obtain more than an appropriate amount of a prescription)
- Forging prescriptions
- Stealing prescriptions from another person
- Obtaining drugs illegally through the Internet or through an illegal distributor
We can help prove that you have the right to have these prescriptions, that the charges against you are too severe, or that your sentence should involve rehabilitation or alternative programs rather than standard sentencing like incarceration and fines.
No case is handled the same, as no case arises from the same circumstances. We will fully analyze your situation, provide you with various options of how to proceed, and give you the recommendations and guidance that our experience has proven to be most likely effective in your case.
