Felony Drug Charges Ready to Work for YOU

Orange County Felony Drug Charges Attorney

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT FELONY DRUG CHARGES

While the possession of illegal drugs in California can come with either a misdemeanor or a felony drug charge, getting the felony charge comes with much steeper consequences. There are a few deciding factors that the prosecution uses to decide whether your drug charge will be considered a felony.

The following factors will be taken into account:

  • The type and the amount of the drug. A controlled substance like heroin will automatically make the charge a felony. Even drugs that aren’t necessarily dangerous controlled substance will still result in a felony charge if there are high amounts of them found.
  • Intent to sell. Drugs intended for personal use will often be charged as a misdemeanor, but drugs that are intended to be sold will result in felony charges.
  • Aggravating circumstances. There are circumstances that will make the prosecution pursue a felony charge instead of a misdemeanor.

  • "Randy Collins is Knowledgeable and Experienced"
    Randy Collins is knowledgeable and experienced. He knows the court system and can help you navigate through it. I believe he gives an honest assessment of the situation and will protect his clients. Highly recommended.

  • "Easy Communication and Genuine Care"
    I called Randy's office essentially in a panic looking for help for my infant daughter and I in a very difficult case. He and his staff immediately consulted with me, and ultimately resolved my case in the most direct and quickest manner possible. I could not be more grateful or complimentary of how Randy handled my case, as well as the easy communication and genuine care for my well-being. I could not recommend Randy more.

  • "We Need More Lawyers Like You"
    Randy before I call him a professional honest lawyer, he is a human being person and sample of pure lawful person, he won’t do business through your case, he help you before even be your lawyer, with no contract!!! Wow I have never seen a lawyer as honest as him. He left me speechless about his prediction for my case, without charging me. He tells what you need to know with no charge. He was like an angel when I needed him. I couldn’t afford even his advice, but he gave me free information when nobody did . I won’t forget your help. Dear Randy I just was watching my pictures and saw your business card, I don’t remember who introduced you to me. But just wanted to say thank you. We need more lawyers like you.

  • "Always Helped Me Understand"
    My son had gotten into some trouble, so thankfully we found Mr. Collins and his paralegal Chris. Every time I called the office, Chris or Mr. Collins guided me through every step and always helped me understand. The legal system is very complicated! But with their assistance and expertise, I couldn't be happier with the outcome of my son's case.

  • "Case Dismissed"
    Case dismissed! I got my girlfriend an attorney to help clear up a warrant she had as well as an outstanding case. The warrant was three years old and she skipped out on court. Randy got case dismissed and warrant is now gone. Only took him one week to accomplish this! Thanks for your help Randy Collins!

  • "It Was a Welcome and Uplifting Experience"
    I called to inquire about a case I was facing, this was one of the many attorneys I was speaking with during a free consult about my next steps. The future was looking more and more alarming as the implications of what I was facing were becoming clear. Halfway through explaining my situation, he interrupted me and asked some basic information, put me on hold for one second and came back telling me he had called around and found out that my case was not proceeding. Four other attorneys I had spoken to did not do this, and in fact had used scare tactics and worst case scenarios to try and hard sell me into signing a retainer. (unfortunately, the evening before I HAD with another attorney signed a retainer but that's for another review) Although I did not need to retain the services of this office, I believe that single action speaks worlds about the integrity, helpfulness, intelligence and capabilities of this office. In a world that is so difficult for the uninitiated, such as the legal system, it seems people are taking advantage of you at every turn. It was a welcome and uplifting experience to see the opposite of that with this law office and I am so grateful I was able to find them and know I could call them if anything were to ever happen to me later in life and know I could trust this team.

  • "Thank You Randy Collins"
    I utilized Mr. Collins services to fight a drug case, which could have ended my career. Mr. Collins was not only very knowledgeable regarding my rights, but also handled my case with the most professionalism that I have yet to experience. His staff was also very friendly and efficient when having any doubts or concerns. At the end my drug case was dropped, I was able to continue my career.
