Charged with Marijuana Possession or Marijuana Cultivation?

Marijuana is the illegal substance of all generations - from youthful offenders who are arrested for minor marijuana possession to elderly persons who are caught growing pot illegally for medicinal purposes.

Attorney Matthew O’Connor is a zealous advocate for those accused of marijuana crimes.  He recognizes that law enforcement often focus their attention on nearly harmless offenses, such as minor marijuana possession, rather than focusing their attention on stopping real crime. He is dedicated to helping vulnerable juveniles, adults, and the elderly combat marijuana charges.

Protect Your Future

Attorney Matthew O’Connor is an active believer that people arrested for marijuana should not be placed in jail. In November, 2000, California voters agreed. Proposition 36 (Prop 36) was introduced and approved to give individuals with substance abuse problems a second chance. Individuals arrested for first offense or second offense marijuana possession now have the opportunity to avoid charges being placed on their record by undergoing a state-funded substance abuse treatment program.
