Drug Possession Attorneys In Pasadena

One of the key issues in drug possession cases and all drug cases is how law enforcement conducted the search and seizure. The Constitutions of both the United States and the state of California, as well as a multitude of federal and state statutes, laws and regulations limit how the police and government can intrude into your privacy. These limitations must be respected in every search and seizure. When law enforcement fails to comply, the accused's rights are violated. Violation of these rights can lead to evidence being thrown out. Often, the entire case will be dismissed. This is why our lawyers take this issue so seriously.

Pasadena Criminal Attorneys know how to identify illegal search and seizure and attack wrongly obtained evidence. Call 626-376-4354 or send an email today.

Never Take Evidence At Face Value

On the surface, evidence often appears strong. However, an experienced drug crime and asset forfeiture lawyer knows that the evidence itself is not the only thing that needs to be reviewed, but also how the evidence was obtained by law enforcement. For example, police may have recovered drugs from your property. What if they did not have probable cause or a warrant to search the property? Then they illegally searched and violated your rights.

Rarely are these matters so clear-cut. Our attorneys will need to ask questions about probable cause if a search was conducted without a warrant. If a warrant was issued, we will need to ask questions about how the warrant was obtained. We will need to review the warrant itself and determine whether the search complied with the warrant. As experienced attorneys and former prosecutors, we know how to put warrants, searches and evidence under a microscope to find the flaws and figure out how to weaken the prosecution's case.

Your Fourth Amendment Rights

These are matters of Constitutional rights. The Fourth Amendment protects you from illegal searches and seizures. We understand this important amendment and how it impacts cases involving drug possession, sales, trafficking and other drug crime cases, including asset forfeiture.
