Drug Crimes

Facing a drug charge can be stressful. It is a cause for concern, but not for despair. John Barrera
and his legal team can help. We have several years of experience in successfully defending
individuals facing the same charged you face today. Call today for a free consultation.

We will devise a strategy to counter the prosecution and defend your rights. Possible strategies
include:
• Lack of possession – just because a substance was near you doesn’t mean it was yours
• Lack of probable cause – the police may not have been justified in their search
• Invalid search warrants – the police may not have had a valid search warrant
• Violation of Constitutional Rights – the police may have violated your rights in seizing evidence
