Drug Crimes

The National Award-Winning Orange County (Fullerton) Drug Offense Defense Attorney, Steven K. Bloom, has specialized in all cases involving drug crimes (for example, Marijuana, Cocaine, heroin, Methamphetamine, and many others). He has handled hundreds of drug-related offenses (such as possession of a controlled substance, sales, manufacturing, and transportation) in Orange County Courts with unmatched results.

Drug Crime Cases in Orange County customarily fall into three categories:

  • Under the Influence of a Controlled Substance;
  • Drug Possession for Personal Use; or
  • Possession of Drugs for Sale, Transportation, or Manufacturing

The first category normally falls under Health and Safety Code 11550 and is a misdemeanor that carries up to 6 months in the county jail and probation. Unfortunately, HS 11550, “Under the Influence”, also carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 90 days in the county jail. Anyone charged with “Under the Influence” needs an experienced Orange County Drug Offense Attorney like Steven K. Bloom, who has been able to avoid the mandatory jail time on hundreds of “Under the Influence” drug offenses.

“Possession for Personal Use” cases normally vary in seriousness based upon the amount of drugs found and the type of drugs found. Obviously, the higher the quantity of drugs found the more serious the case. Also, some drugs such as cocaine and heroin usually signal a more serious case than marijuana. Orange County is much more strict on Drug Possession charges than most counties and almost always files them as felonies. Needless to say, felony drug offense charges should be handled by only experienced attorneys.

Cases that involve large quantities of drugs and are alleging that the drugs were for sale are usually felonies that can expose you to State Prison sentences.

Factors that Judges and Prosecutors use to determine whether the drugs found were for personal use or for sale are:

  • Quantity of drugs
  • Packaging of drugs; many similar sized packages or one package
  • Empty packaging materials
  • Scales or measuring devices
  • large amount of cash/small denominations
  • presence/absence of personal use paraphernalia
  • pay/owe sheets
  • cell phones/text messages that set up meetings

I am So Happy that I hired Attorney, Steve Bloom, to help me with my DUI case. He is Very Professional, Hard working and Extremely Knowledgeable & Very Attention to details. I was scared and worried and he immediately made me feel at ease. Then, over the next number of months, he lived up to everything he said to me over the phone and at our initial consultation. He was able to get many allegations dismissed in court and even won my DMV Hearing, which saved me from having my licensed suspended for 1 year! He is worth every penny I paid him and more. I will give him 5 plus Stars, I definitely will refer anyone who need his help to him .

I found Steven Bloom on Avvo. I had never needed an attorney so I did not know what I was supposed to be looking for. After calling other attorneys and getting different quotes I almost went with the cheapest but then I called Steven and I'm glad I did. He was so reassuring and walked me through the process. He made sure I got what I asked for and was even able to check with his colleague that my case wouldn't interfere with other legal things I have going on. I will definitely recommend him to friends and family, Thank you Steven!
Steve went above and beyond in helping me resolve a petty theft case. For someone who had never had any run-ins with the law before, the entire process of going to court and retaining an attorney was all new and very frightening. I researched several different attorneys before settling on Steve because he was the only one who really acknowledged my concerns when I described my case to him over the phone. During the consultation, he laid out his game plan and explained exactly how he would tackle my case, and hearing him say that it was very likely that he could resolve it...it was like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders. In the end, he was able to get my case dismissed with NO guilty plea, and thus, no conviction on my record. I would highly, highly recommend him to anyone in the OC area looking for a defense attorney, whatever your situation. He is incredibly competent and has so much professional experience, but above all that, his kindness and authenticity are the real deal. He really listens to you and makes you feel at ease despite everything. I can't recommend him enough and I'm so glad I retained him for my case. Thank you so much, Steve.

Steve helped me and my family resolve a DUI case involving several serious charges. Before hiring him, we spoke to a family friend in the Orange County Sheriff's Department who recommended that we prioritize looking for a lawyer who is not only well established in OC but also has extensive experience with the court handling our case, North Justice Court. After interviewing several lawyers around the area, Steve became the clear choice as he is extremely knowledgable about the various judges, prosecutors, and clerks at North Justice and also has many personal connections with those people. The case itself was not easy and a very difficult and exasperating process, but Steve had a very well thought out game plan and was able to execute it while doing his best to keep us reassured the entire way. We are happy with the results that included reduced charges and a significant reduction in fines.

His honesty and beyond fair price was the first reason I hired Steven K Bloom. It was one of the best decisions I ever made. I quickly realized that he is well known and respected in the Orange County Court System. He handled my case very professionally, and he kept me feeling confident through my entire case. At the end of my case all charges against me were dropped. I feel confident in saying, if I had hired some other attorney, the results would not have been the same. He went above and beyond the call of duty for me. If you want the best defense that you can possibly have, I highly recommend Steven K Bloom. Thank you again Steve, I am very grateful for your services
