Our Beverly Hills Criminal Defense Attorney Protects You from These Penalties

Attorney Ninaz Saffari and her legal team have nearly two decades of experience in fighting for the rights of people arrested for drug crimes in Beverly Hills.

If you go unrepresented and get convicted of a drug crime offense:

Our clients respect and appreciate how we support them, as reflected by these individuals:

  • “Being arrested is absolutely horrifying. Period. Mine was an under-the-influence drug charge in California, the circumstances of which were too embarrassing to ask friends or family for assistance… Ninaz is personable, compassionate, knowledgeable of the law and, probably most important, she knows the turf and those who play on it. Her relentless, aggressive style used when fighting for me paid off.” ––Anon
  • “The DA strongly fought for me to serve 6 years in State Prison but Ninaz never gave up on me, even when I did. Her professionalism and determination is flawless and after a few attempts she finally struck a deal…Nina got the DA to drop the prison time. My family and I are so thankful to have a strong amazing Attorney on my side.” ––Ailene

Attorney Ninaz Saffari Gets Positive Outcomes for Drug Crime Cases

Each case comes with a unique set of circumstances that requires careful consideration. When we take your case, we implement a tailor-made strategy that aims to secure the best possible outcome, whether that means a “not guilty” verdict or a case dismissal. Some of our successful case results include:

  • The dismissal of a driving under the influence charge. Our client was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of a mind-altering substance. The police didn’t believe her story, and to make matters more complicated, she tested positive for crystal meth at the police station. We secured a plea deal that resulted in substance abuse education programs, with no jail time, fines, or other penalties.
  • A plea bargain for a drug crime charge. The police pulled over our client for speeding and learned that she was under the influence of various substances, including heroin and cocaine. Because of the overwhelming evidence, an acquittal wasn’t possible. Attorney Saffari worked out a plea deal that resulted in no fines or jail time.
  • A plea deal for a client charged with felony drug possession. Our client was charged with felony Possession for Sale and Transportation of Methamphetamine, Cocaine, and Heroin. Through a plea deal, we worked out an arrangement that resulted in no jail time––only probation.
Criminal Defense

Common Defenses Against Possession, Trafficking, and Other Drug Crimes

Soon after meeting with your Beverly Hills drug crime attorney, she will discuss potential options for your defense. These may include but are not limited to:

  • Arguing that you didn’t know the drugs were in your possession (i.e., they belonged to someone else)

  • Being in lawful possession of certain substances, such as prescription medications

  • Asserting that the police improperly gathered evidence or otherwise violated your rights

  • Poking holes in the prosecution’s argument

  • Citing any errors made during discovery or another administrative process 

We May Push for Probation in Your Beverly Hills Drug Crimes Case

First-time offenders charged with a felony may be eligible for probation rather than prison under the Federal First Offender Act (FFOA). There are other conditions a defense attorney will argue for that may provide opportunities for probation or community service rather than incarceration.

Conversely, an individual who is facing their third violent or serious felony conviction faces a prison sentence of 25 years to life under California’s three-strike rule. In California, the result of a drug crime arrest depends on the individuals involved and the unique circumstances of the case.

We May Have Your Felony Charge Reduced to a Misdemeanor

A “wobbler” is a felony offense that could be charged as a misdemeanor or felony, based on the circumstances of your case and the argument your drug crime defense lawyer presents to the judge.

A felony may also be reduced to a misdemeanor if you meet certain criteria.

How to Protect Your Rights if Arrested for Drug Crimes in Beverly Hills

What you do or don’t do in the moments after a drug crime arrest can affect your future. To achieve the best possible resolution for your case, you should:

  • Cooperate with the police, remaining polite and respectful throughout the process.
  • Tell the police and the prosecutor your name if they ask, then tell them you want to speak to your lawyer. Keep asking for your lawyer every time they question you. Speak to a drug crimes attorney before you speak to anyone else.
