Drug Possession Charges

The United States and the State of Texas have been fighting a “War on Drugs” since the 1970s. While encouraging citizens to resist drug use is admirable, fighting the war on drugs shouldn’t turn into a war on people. 

 

To beat a drug charge, a lawyer must know the complex law surrounding searches and seizures, how to examine a warrant, and the latest caselaw surrounding “affirmative links” (or ties) of a defendant to the drugs.  Your lawyer should also know the ins and outs of procedural law and have experience with independent drug testing, examining chain of custody, Franks Motions, and Motions to Suppress. 

 

Drug charges can range from Class C misdemeanors (“tickets” which are punishable by fine only) all the way up to First Degree felonies which are punishable by up to 99 years in prison.  This firm has experience defending against every single class of misdemeanor and felony drug offense.
