The state of California, though it recently legalized the recreational use of marijuana, is still extremely harsh when it comes to convicting other drug crimes.

At Brehmer Law Corporation, our criminal defense attorneys will identify where law enforcement made an error as well as any misconduct on their part. Our priority is having your entire case dropped or minimized as much as possible, which is often a possibility through a motion to suppress evidence. It is essential to thoroughly scrutinize the evidence used against as you as well as the way in which it was obtained. If even the slightest misconduct is discovered, you are instantly at an advantage and can strike this from your history.
