Redding Drug Crimes Lawyer

Northern California Drug Possession Defense Attorney

Being charged with a drug crime is quite common in California, from growing marijuana to running meth labs to using the Interstate 5 corridor for drug trafficking. Drug charges are very serious. If you have been arrested, you need an aggressive attorney to fight for you.

My name is Joe Gazzigli and I have been a criminal defense attorney for more than 35 years. Because many drug crime charges are covered by state and federal laws, you need a lawyer with both state and federal criminal defense experience. I handle many federal defense cases and know what it takes to fight federal charges. Please call my Redding office at 530-241-6900.
