Hire A Former Prosecutor To Stand By Your Side! Attorney Marc Pelta knows the system and how it works!

Experience Counts

Domestic Violence From A Former Criminal Prosecutor

Beyond the criminal penalties – jail time, fines and prison time – the collateral damage from drug charges can be staggering. You could face the loss of your job, suffer extensive damage to your personal reputation and even lose custody of your children. Having a criminal record is something that can haunt you for the rest of your life.

With so much at stake, it is crucial to have an experienced defense attorney looking out for you. In San Francisco and throughout California, you can turn to me to minimize your exposure to the criminal penalties and collateral consequences of a drug charge.

I defend against a wide range of state and federal drug crimes, including:

  • Drug possession for personal use
  • Possession with intent to sell
  • Possession with intent to sell within the proximity of a school
  • Drug trafficking
  • Manufacturing
  • Prior drug conviction enhancements

This includes charges involving drugs such as narcotics, cocaine, heroin, prescription drugs, methamphetamine and more. I can also assist you with any issues relating to Prop 36 and drug court.

A Tough Litigator For Your Drug Defense

The sad truth is that most defense lawyers in California lack trial experience. That’s like approaching a repair job without all of your tools. As a former prosecutor, I feel right at home in the courtroom. I know how the prosecution thinks and use that perspective to build a strong defense that can withstand the scrutiny of judges and juries.

I prepare every case for the possibility of trial. This allows me to negotiate plea agreements from a position of strength and quickly pivot to trial when an agreement in your interest cannot be reached.
