Why You Need An Attorney To Fight Drug Crimes
Texas prosecutors are aggressive when pursuing penalties for those convicted of drug crimes. Even the possession of marijuana can lead to jail time in some circumstances. Our experienced attorneys will take the time to explain the penalties you are facing and develop a strategy that is focused on protecting your freedom. The amount and type of drugs that you have at the time of your arrest will play a major role in the amount of prison time you are facing. We have defended clients in a number of different misdemeanor and felony drug crimes cases, including:
- Possession of a controlled substance, such as cocaine, meth, marijuana, heroin and prescription medications
- Manufacturing and distribution of illegal drugs
- Trafficking of illegal and prescription drugs
