Drug-related crimes are among the most common prosecuted in Arizona courts. Law enforcement, prosecutors, and courts spend enormous time and resources on identifying, prosecuting, and punishing those who violate state and federal drug laws. In many cases, overzealous police officers can violate your fundamental rights in their aggressive efforts to obtain evidence, while prosecutors can be deliberate in seeking maximized punishments for these crimes. Under these conditions, and when facing any drug crime allegations, the equally-determined advocacy of a competent criminal defense lawyer can be your best asset.

At Alatorre Law, we are well-versed in the laws related to all types of drug crimes, from simple possession to large-scale trafficking. Our attorney has over 17 years of experience protecting the rights of individuals like you. We put our dedicated work ethic on your side in extensively investigating your arrest and the circumstances surrounding it, including any violations of your rights. Our firm focuses on giving you the best defense possible in search of an optimum outcome, whether that be a diversion program, reduced charges, dismissal of charges, or a not guilty verdict. Our firm is here to increase your chances of a favorable outcome through extensive case preparation and advocacy. We routinely prepare all cases for trial to put our clients in the strongest legal position possible.

Drug Crime Penalties

The penalties you can face if you are convicted of a drug crime will depend on the type of drug involved, its quantity, and other factors, such as whether the drugs were possessed for personal consumption or not. Typical consequences for convictions include jail or prison sentences, hefty fines, and probation. You may also lose your driver’s license or be required to undergo drug rehabilitation.

Some courts in Arizona have pre-indictment drug diversion programs, and some counties have programs that provide drug treatment instead of incarceration for individuals facing addiction issues. Your attorney can help you take advantage of any such programs if you are eligible.

Drug Crimes In Arizona

Our firm handles all types of drug charges involving illegal street drugs and prescription drugs. These drugs can range from cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine, to opioids, barbiturates, stimulants, sedatives, and other painkillers. Examples of prescription drug charges can involve Vicodin, morphine, fentanyl, and oxycodone.

We defend against drug offenses, such as:

▪ Simple possession of any controlled substance.
▪ Possession with intent to sell or distribute
▪ Transportation or importation of drugs
▪ Manufacture of drugs
▪ Drug trafficking
▪ Possession of drug paraphernalia
▪ Prescription medicine fraud, distribution, and sales
▪ Driving under the influence of drugs

Drug offenses can range from misdemeanors to serious felonies and can include multiple charges stemming from any one incident, including conspiracy charges. While every case is different, those facing drug crimes have much at stake. A conviction can not only lead to criminal penalties but can give you a permanent criminal record that can diminish your future chances for employment or career advances, educational opportunities, professional licenses, and more.

I was accused/cited for DUI so I hired Javier Alatorre to defend me (I was under the legal BAC limit). When I first spoke to Javier, he treated me like a person and never made me like a criminal so I felt very comfortable with him. He was always available to discuss this case even though it dragged on for over 3 years (COVID). The end result was that he got my cased dismissed. I couldn't ask for anything better. I highly recommend Javier.

Attorney Javier Alatorre is very attentive, personable, and responds timely to inquiries. His confidence and knowledge of the judicial process is commendable and very reassuring. His understanding of a client's concerns and worries is notable and very much appreciated. My case is ongoing, but thus far, attorney Alatorre has proven to be very responsible, available, and invested in serving his clients.

Even though my case was in Bull Head City. I am more than glad I got with Javier. Im the type of person that don’t trust anyone. Believe nothing of what you hear and only half of what you see. Thats my motto. After a week of talking to every lawyer through out AZ I liked Javier the best. And was extremely glad I trusted my instincts. I love to gamble but not with my life. Trust me. Just call him

Javier helped me out not once, but twice in an exceptional manner. Javier was always on time and one step ahead of the process. He was also extremely courteous to the courtroom employees and could navigate around situations at ease. Not to mention he had pin point precision in examining details in both cases. Both outcomes in the two cases I had him for were more than advantageous. I highly recommend Javier for your next case!

I highly recommend Javier Alatorre. He is very professional and exceeded all my expectations. Not only is he very knowledgeable, he takes the time and has the ability to explain all aspects of the case in simple terms.Javier draws on his own extensive experience as well as on his wide professional network to provide the best counsel across different specialties. In my case the immigration implications were important and he helped me understand the possible outcomes and decide on the best course to achieve the desired result.If you want results, you want Javier Alatorre on your team.
