Drug Possession Defense

Mr. Brennan, our criminal defense attorney in Sacramento CA, has successfully handled many drug cases at the local and state court levels for people just like you. He knows how high the stakes are for you as well as the need for you to avoid harsh punishments, including jail terms, heavy fines, a criminal record, separation from your loved ones, and damage to your reputation, to say nothing of strict probation terms upon your release. It is his goal to provide you with sound guidance and solid support so you have the strength and confidence you and your family need throughout your travels in the California criminal justice system.

Our Sacramento criminal defense law firm is here for you when a felony or misdemeanor arrest for possession or sale of one or more of these controlled substances endangers your liberties, lifestyle, and livelihood:

  • Marijuana
  • Medical Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Methamphetamine
  • Party Drugs
  • Prescription Drugs
  • Drug Paraphernalia

Defense for Sexual Offenses

Depending on the seriousness of the sexual abuse or assault you are charged with, you can be subject to either a felony or a misdemeanor. To ensure that your rights are properly protected, in and out of court, you need the experience, skills, and client commitment that comes with our criminal defense attorney. We have seen the criminal justice system work from both sides and can use our experience to your advantage.

Due to public outcry against sex offenders in recent years, many sexual offenses may be prosecuted with relatively skimpy and subjective evidence that can work against justice for the accused. There is a tendency to assume that a defendant is guilty due to the nature of the charges as opposed to the actual evidence. Our Sacramento defense attorney is ready to provide you with the tough defense you need to make sure you aren’t convicted due to a flimsy case. Our attorney is well-known for providing strong defenses of those accused of sex crimes, and we look forward to hearing from you if you have been arrested for and charged with:

  • Child Molestation
  • Indecent Exposure
  • Internet Solicitation of a Minor
  • Lewd Acts
  • Possession & Distribution of Child Pornography
  • Prostitution
  • Rape, Statutory Rape & Date Rape
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Sexual Assault & Domestic Violence
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Sexting

Comprehensive DUI Defense

Being found guilty of drunk driving could end up sending you to jail, having you lose your driver’s license, impair your ability to get to your job, or even endanger your professional license. Furthermore, being found guilty of a DUI can drain your finances with heavy fines while damaging your personal reputation. You do not have to surrender to this bleak end-game, however, thanks to our aggressive criminal defense attorney.

Mr. Brennan is ready to take full charge of your case after your arrest, from DMV administrative hearings to negotiations with prosecutors and aggressively litigating your case, to ensure your rights are upheld. We know the justice process inside-out and can use facts of your case to argue for reduction or dismissal of your charges.

White Collar Crime Defense

If you have been accused of committing a white collar crime then you need to speak to our criminal defense attorney. White collar crimes often involve one or more state or federal agencies, such as the Internal Revenue Service, Securities Exchange Commission, the California State Attorney General, the California Department of Insurance Fraud Division, and the local district attorney. Our attorney understands how to handle all of them and help you build a strong defense for your case. We are here to help you if you have been charged with:

  • Fraud
  • Insurance Fraud
  • Securities Fraud
  • Business Fraud
  • Embezzlement

Juvenile Crime Defense

When a minor is charged with a misdemeanor or felony offense, how the situation is handled legally and outside of the courts can affect the juvenile and his or her family for the rest of their lives. J.P. Brennan understands the ramifications of juvenile crimes all too well and works hard to prevent a criminal record in the child’s name, to avoid incarceration for the youth, and to buy time to fix the root problem, if there is one.

Juvenile crime is often the result of social issues, including peer pressure from so-called friends, a problem with substance abuse, or a difficult home situation. Mr. Brennan weighs all of these factors and customizes his quality juvenile law defense representation to fit the unique needs of his client. Our Sacramento Criminal Defense Attorney believes in second chances, as well as your child’s rights under the law.

Juvenile court is different than adult criminal courts. The arresting officer can determine when a crime does not warrant placing charges, resulting in a simple reprimand. The underage suspect could also be subject to a petition filing, followed by a detention hearing, fitness hearing, jurisdiction hearing, and if found guilty, a disposition hearing. This process equals to a sentence ranging from informal probation to confinement. The types of juvenile crimes we can provide our legal defense for include:

  • Petty Theft & Grand Theft
  • Underage Drinking
  • Assault
  • Cyber Crimes
  • Drug Offenses
  • Disorderly Conduct
  • Trespassing
  • Vandalism
  • Use of a Deadly Weapon
  • Sex Crimes
  • Murder
