Does The Crime Fit The Potential Penalties?

Attorney Timothy B. Rien has more than 30 years of experience as a criminal lawyer. He knows the tactics police use during the arrest. "Overbooking" is a problem that can have a far-reaching impact throughout the defense strategy. For example, if you had drugs in your car, law enforcement might consider this drug trafficking. Rather than being charged with simple possession, you get charged with drug trafficking. Attorney Rien and his colleague Melissa Adams make sure the charges brought against you are accurate.

The firm handles many Fourth Amendment issues involving illegal search and seizure. The firm gathers all necessary information and evidence — from police reports to other data sheets — in an independent investigation. With information gathered from the investigation, options are then relayed to you. Each case has its own nuances, and the attorneys are highly skilled at identifying the unique qualities of your situation.

Rien, Adams & Cox, LLP defends against misdemeanor drug possession and felony charges related to every kind of narcotic, drug and non-prescribed medication, including

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Opium and opium derivatives, including heroin & morphine
  • Methamphetamines
  • Prescription drugs
  • Hallucinogenic drugs, including LSD, Mescaline, Peyote & Psilocybin
  • All central nervous system depressants and stimulants

Drug Diversion And Rehabilitation Programs

Whenever possible, the attorneys strive to obtain sentencing alternatives such as drug diversion and rehabilitation programs. If you have a drug problem, a treatment program will do you far more good than a year in jail. Under Proposition 36 in California, you must be eligible for treatment, and all other alternatives for dismissal must have been explored. When you complete an 18-month rehab program, the criminal charges will be dismissed.
