Humboldt County Criminal Defense Attorney

Fighting Criminal Charges with Powerful, Effective Defense

Located 200 miles north of San Francisco, Humboldt County is a mountainous and rural county located along the Pacific Coast. Humboldt County makes up 20% of the total forest production for California with nearly 1,500,000 acres of combined public and private forest that is in production. Many people come to Humboldt County in the early 1970s to buy cheap land and ended up growing marijuana to pay for their land payments.

This area gained a popular reputation throughout California for producing a high quality of marijuana, and law enforcement agencies conduct raids throughout Humboldt County on a regular basis. Humboldt County has a much lower violent crime rate than California and many places in the United States in general. Approximately 300 out of every 1,000 adults who are arrested for felony offenses in Humboldt County are imprisoned, and the majority of these arrests involve violent crimes like murder, property offenses, and felony drug crimes.

Drug Crimes in Humboldt County: Marijuana

Law enforcement agencies in Humboldt County have targeted marijuana as one of the most significant crimes to be addressed. Even though medical marijuana in California is legal, there are strict guidelines regarding how medical marijuana is to be grown, obtained and prescribed. If you have recently been arrested for a drug crime, DUI, or any other criminal offense, it is important to act quickly. Protecting your rights and building a strong defense will be critical to the outcome of your case, and we are here to help.
