Prescription Drug Charges
Accused of prescription drug crimes? You deserve a skilled drug defense attorney.
When you possess or use a prescription drug without a prescription or outside the scope of your prescription, you are committing a crime. You could be charged with one or more of the following prescription drug offenses:
- Possession for sale
- Sale or transportation
- Under the influence
- Driving under the influence
- Prescription fraud
At Perlmutter & Pourshalimi, we understand California’s prescription drug laws in detail. We can help you fight back against the charges you face, whether you are accused of a crime related to Vicodin, OxyContin, codeine, or other prescription medications.
Possible Prescription Drug Charges Defenses
There are a few common arguments that can be helpful for any type of prescription drug charge. For example, if we can prove that you actually had a valid prescription for the medication in question, you probably are not guilty of a crime. Other possibilities to explore include the argument that the drugs did not actually belong to you or that they were discovered through illegal search and seizure.
When you hire Perlmutter & Pourshalimi as your prescription drug charge defense attorney, you will receive a personalized defense tailored to the particulars of your case, including the nature of the charges against you, the strength of available evidence, the disposition of the prosecution, and your goals for the resolution of your case.
