Defending Clients Accused of Misusing Medications
Every year, millions of Americans use prescription drugs that have not been legally prescribed to them. Maybe you became dependent on a drug while you were being treated for a medical condition. Or maybe you were injured and could not afford to see a doctor for a prescription.
In either case, if you have been charged with a prescription drug offense, you could be facing serious criminal consequences. At The Law Office of Charles B. Smith, we provide dedicated, compassionate representation to clients who have been accused of prescription drug crimes.
Giving You a Voice in the Criminal Justice System
San Mateo prescription drug offense lawyer Charles B. Smith — a former prosecutor and former police officer — has more than 25 years of experience in California's criminal justice system. He has helped many clients fight drug charges involving medications such as:
- Valium (diazepam)
- OxyContin (oxycodone)
- Vicodin (hydrocodone/paracetamol)
- Percocet (oxycodone/paracetamol)
- Xanax (alprazolam)
If you have been accused of possessing drugs without a prescription, fraudulently obtaining a prescription or any other prescription drug crime, we will carefully investigate the facts of your case and your personal background in order to ensure that your side of the story is told.
Depending on the facts of your case, we may be able to get your charges dismissed or reduced by bringing new evidence to light. We may also be able to get you into a treatment program under Proposition 36, keeping you out of jail and keeping your record clean.
