San Bernardino Drug Possession Attorney
Nearly 10 Years of Experience Defending the Accused
Caught with drugs in your possession? Your case may be defendable. While it may feel like the odds are stacked against you, it may help to know that Proposition 47 reclassified most drug possession offenses as strictly misdemeanors when it was passed in 2014.
However, don’t be fooled into thinking that your alleged drug possession offense is no big deal. If convicted, you may be subject to jail time, fines, community service, mandatory participation in treatment programs, and more. Not to mention, your conviction will appear on your criminal record, which will make it difficult for you to secure a job, financial aid, housing, higher education, and more. Thus, it is in your best interest to retain an experienced San Bernardino drug possession lawyer who will personally handle your case from start to finish. As such, Mr. Kuntz is the right choice for you. With thousands of cases argued and experience as a public defender, he has what it takes to help you resolve your charges.
