Drug Crimes

In Los Angeles and throughout Southern California, drug crimes arrests are extremely common. But it is also very common for false arrests to be made or for police to violate the rights of arrestees. We don't let them get away with that. Raoul Severo knows exactly which questions to ask and where to look to uncover police misconduct. Indeed, Mr. Severo was able to secure the highest jury verdict ever rendered against the Los Angeles Police Department in a police misconduct case.

There are a wide variety of drug crimes in California, including: simple possession of a controlled substance, possession for sale, sale or transport of drugs, methamphetamine possession, possession of drug paraphernalia, manufacture of illegal drugs, being under the influence of illegal drugs, and possession of over 28.5 grams or one (1) ounce of marijuana for personal use.

The Law Office of Raoul Severo has handled all of these charges in the past and more, and we understand what it takes to win. The prosecution often overplays their hand and tries to pressure us into capitulation, but we call their bluff. We know how to spot weaknesses in the prosecution's case and exploit them.
