Drug Crimes

If you are charged with a drug offense in California, you should be aware that a jail sentence is just one of the possible serious penalties you face. In addition, you may face community service, rehabilitation and a heavy penalty. Conviction of a drug offense may also put you at a disadvantage in a competitive job market. At the law offices of Philip S. Barnett, in San Mateo, California, I will fight aggressively to protect your rights and keep you from facing the tough penalties that can result from a drug conviction.
