DRUG MANUFACTURING & CULTIVATION
SAN FRANCISCO CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY AGGRESSIVELY DEFENDING CLIENTS ACCUSED OF DRUG MANUFACTURING AND CULTIVATION
Drug manufacturing and cultivation is a criminal offense under both federal law and the California Penal Code. If the authorities suspect that you are harvesting or concocting drugs on your property, they will attempt to obtain a search warrant and seize anything they find remotely connected to the crime. We assist San Francisco, Oakland, and San Jose clients victimized by overzealous police and illegal searches and seizures by thoroughly investigating each case, crafting the strongest possible defense, and assisting clients with controlling media coverage of their cases.

- Manufacturing: The process of concocting a controlled substance for sale or personal use is a felony punishable by up to seven years in prison.
- Possession of Chemicals: Possession of chemicals commonly used to manufacture PCP or methamphetamine is a felony punishable by up to six years in prison.
DEFENDING AGAINST DRUG MANUFACTURING CHARGES
Drug manufacturing cases involve a two-step process: the investigation and the prosecution. You have the highest probability of avoiding a conviction in the pre-indictment phase. The Law Office of John M. Runfola has over three decades of experience with successfully negotiating favorable early resolutions that avoid indictment entirely. In the pre-indictment phase, our skilled team of criminal defense lawyers, paralegals, private investigators, and experts will comb through the facts of your case, craft a solid defense strategy, and negotiate with the government.
If we are unable to resolve your case pre-indictment, we will utilize every resource available to us to fight the charges, including examining whether the police violated the Fourth or Fifth Amendment, presenting a viable defense or alibi at trial, and undermining the credibility of government witnesses
