A Law Firm That Gets Results

Devoted to Family Law and Criminal Defense Throughout the Houston Area

Aggressive Defense Of Drug Possession Charges

Being charged with drug possession can be as simple as having prescription drugs for which you do not have a prescription on you, in a bag or in your vehicle. You could be charged with possession if you have a pipe, lighter or other paraphernalia with residue on it from smoking anything from marijuana to crack cocaine. Additionally, paraphernalia and possession charges could emanate from possession of equipment that may be used to grow, cultivate, package, test, manufacture or store an illicit or controlled substance.In many possession charge cases, police officers overstep their authority and search you, your possessions or your vehicle without probable cause. Illegal search and seizure is a violation of your constitutional rights, and it can be challenged in court effectively by an experienced criminal defense lawyer.

Defending Against A Drug Possession Charge

Our Pearland-based law firm handles drug possession cases in Houston and surrounding areas regularly. When we handle your case, we will independently investigate all facts and evidence. We will ensure that your rights are protected, and we will build a customized case that is prepared for trial and capable of mitigating the consequences you face to the fullest extent possible.

We do not plea bargain unless it is in our clients’ best interests. A possession conviction can have profound effects on the rest of your life, and we are not about to just let the criminal justice system have its way with you, creating a permanent criminal record, including jail/prison time and heavy fines followed by probation.

Have you also been charged with drug distribution or possession with intent to deliver (PWID)? Call our firm right away at 979-849-8526 to speak with an attorney.

We will discuss your legal options and rights along with the specifics of your case. Your attorney will identify the best possible defense strategy in your case and build a compelling defense based on proven tactics and solid investigative work.
