Drug possession and sales charges are based on the type and amount of drugs alleged to have been found. The penalties associated with a drug possession or sales conviction may include a lengthy prison sentence, heavy fines or the forfeiture of your assets. These penalties are also affected by the circumstances of your arrest and your prior criminal history.
My name is Tom McKenna. As a veteran criminal defense lawyer with over 30 years of experience, I skillfully represent people charged with drug possession and other drug crimes throughout the East Bay area of San Francisco. I represent clients charged with:
- Possession or sale of marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin, ecstasy and other illegal substances
- Prescription fraud involving drugs such as OxyContin, Darvocet and other painkillers
- Possession with intent to sell
- Related drug crimes charges, including drug trafficking and manufacturing
How I Can Help You Achieve The Best Possible Outcome
My years of experience working in the Contra Costa County criminal justice system allow me to achieve the best possible outcome for my clients who have been charged with these crimes. I know how the prosecution will prepare the case against you, which enables me to defend you as effectively as possible.
If the witnesses to your alleged offense have provided inaccurate or untrustworthy statements, or if the evidence against you was obtained by violating your constitutional rights, I will challenge the case against you to secure an acquittal. If it is impossible to avoid a conviction, I may be able to negotiate a lesser charge, secure a pretrial diversion of your case or seek alternative sentencing under certain circumstances.
