Experienced Modesto Criminal Defense Lawyer Aggressively Defending the Rights of Those Accused of Narcotics Offenses
While California led the charge to legalize the recreational use of marijuana, the fact remains that the state’s drug laws are strictly enforced as they pertain to all other controlled substances. If you are convicted in a Modesto drug case, it could land you in jail, and even if you’re spared of incarceration, the conviction will significantly limit your future opportunities. The result is that if you are charged with drug crimes, you need a criminal defense lawyer who will take your case as seriously as you do. At the Law Office of Rebecka A. Monez, we proudly stand up for our clients’ rights in the face of aggressive police and overzealous prosecutors.
California Drug Laws
In California, a drug crime can either be a misdemeanor or a felony. In most cases, the seriousness of an offense depends on how much of a controlled substance someone has in their possession and if they possessed the substance for personal use or whether they intended to sell it.

2023 Litigator of the Year
The American Institute of Trial Lawyers is an invitation-only professional organization composed of premier trial attorneys from each state. These attorneys exemplify the very best qualities and qualifications of an attorney. Each attorney must meet stringent qualifications as a civil or criminal trial attorney.
An attorney who is selected as a Litigator of the Year possesses the knowledge, skill, experience, and success of a seasoned litigator. Very few attorneys from each region will receive such recognition. In fact, less than .03% of attorneys will even be nominated. This recognition is given out yearly.
