Drug Crimes

California's medical marijuana laws have caused confusion about what is legal and what isn't in terms of possession, cultivation, and sales of marijuana. By no means, however, does the complexity of California drug laws stop there.

At the Palm Desert office of Dale Gribow Attorney at Law, we have a thorough knowledge of California drug laws, and we know how to successfully defend individuals against a variety of drug charges. Mr. Gribow has practiced law for more than 30 years, including more than 20 years in the Coachella Valley.

Our law firm approaches criminal defense with a focus on minimizing the impact that drug crimes and other charges have on our clients' lives. Sometimes that means fighting charges in court; other times it entails agreeing to reduced charges or getting charges dismissed by negotiating with prosecutors and avoiding court altogether.

Tenacious And Detail-Oriented

We defend individuals who are charged with a wide variety of drug crimes, including:

  • Possession of marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamines and other controlled substances
  • Drug sales or trafficking
  • Transporting drugs
  • Drug manufacturing
  • Prescription drug fraud

In their zeal to confiscate illegal drugs and make an arrest, police often overstep what is allowed by law while searching a home, car or person. Evidence that is illegally obtained cannot be used in court — hence, we have been able to get charges dismissed when this occurs.

We also have a full understanding of the state's flexibility when it comes to prosecuting drug crimes. We have successfully negotiated reduced charges, avoided prison time, and have even kept clients' arrest records clean, by agreeing to alternative sentencing. This includes the completion of drug addiction and diversion programs and other community efforts.
