If you or a loved one has been charged with drug manufacturing, your future is on the line. As a convicted felon, your charge will shadow you the rest of your life. Even after serving a long prison sentence, a drug conviction will make it difficult to find employment or housing.
At Bird & Van Dyke, we fight our clients’ drug charges. We are dedicated to protecting you and your future.
With offices in Stockton and Tracy, we defend clients throughout the Central Valley and Northern California against drug manufacturing charges.
Protecting Your Rights, Defending You Against Manufacturing Charges
The state of California and the federal government have laws making it illegal to manufacture drugs. If the federal government decides to prosecute you, you are facing harsh consequences. If convicted, you face long mandatory prison sentences with little chance of early parole. You need experienced drug manufacturing defense lawyers working on your side. You need Bird & Van Dyke.
Our firm has successfully defended clients against a broad range of drug manufacturing charges in both state and federal courts, including:
- Meth manufacturing
- Marijuana grow houses and cultivation operations
- Producing drugs on federal lands
- Synthetic drug manufacturing
A Former Prosecutor Defending Your Case
If you have been charged with a crime, who better to defend you than a former prosecutor? Attorney Bird has experience working on both sides of the table. Ms. Bird knows what the government needs to obtain a guilty verdict and builds successful defense strategies that protect her clients’ rights.
We attack the government’s case and question police action. Was there probable cause to search you or your home? Were warrants valid? Were you given your Miranda rights? Did drug labs use appropriate testing procedures?
Defense Against Synthetic Drug Charges
Many synthetic drugs are created using legal products — such as bath salts — and California lawmakers are working hard to outlaw them. Attorney Bird was one of the first attorneys in California to defend a client against synthetic drug charges. We examine the chemical makeup of the alleged illegal drug to determine whether it is, in fact, illegal. If the chemical makeup of the drug is not banned under state or federal law, you cannot be charged with drug manufacturing.
