El Dorado County Drug Crime Defense
I Will Help You Fight Any Drug Charge
Drug-related crimes are possibly some of the most aggressively prosecuted crimes in our legal system today. At times, it seems that local law enforcement is so determined to make an arrest in a case involving drugs that they forget about the basic rights of the person they are investigating. If you are facing charges for any type of drug-related crime, be sure that you have an aggressive El Dorado County criminal defense attorney who can help to protect your rights.
At the Law Offices of Rachel D. Miller, I have defended clients against all types of drug charges, having practiced criminal law for over a decade in courts in El Dorado County and the surrounding areas. I have a complete understanding of how local prosecutors handle these cases, and I know the types of defenses that work against them.

Experience in a Wide Variety of Cases Involving Marijuana & Other Drugs
I have successfully handled all types of cases involving a variety of drugs, including:
Moreover, I have successfully defended clients against charges such as possession, distribution, trafficking, manufacturing and cultivation.
Marijuana has become more socially acceptable, legal for those in California with a valid prescription for medical marijuana use and even legalized in nearby states. Even with recent laws for legalization being passed, it is still a controlled substance in California, and you could be charged with a crime under many circumstances.
When you become my client, I dig deep to fully understand the facts of your case. I review all police reports and witness statements to look for inconsistencies we can use to your advantage. I question whether the officer had probable cause to enter your home or search your property. Law enforcement officers have to obey the law too. If the search and seizure did not fully comply with the law, I will take immediate action to have the case dismissed.
Focused on Keeping Records Clean & Fighting Addiction
Approximately 85% of all crimes are drug- and alcohol-related. I have considerable experience in specialty drug treatment courts. Both Diversion and Prop 36 allow you to complete a treatment process and be rewarded with dismissal of your case. I pursue these alternatives relentlessly to help my clients keep convictions off their record and addiction out of their lives.
In those cases where a guilty verdict comes back, I will use my considerable experience as an El Dorado County criminal defense lawyer to seek treatment in lieu of incarceration. I have a solid track record of success in keeping my clients out of jail either by beating the case against them or negotiating alternative punishments on their behalf.
