Texas is tough on drug crimes. Get representation you can trust.
In Texas, possession of an illicit or controlled substance can land you with a drug possession charge as you may be in violation of the Texas Controlled Substances Act. Prosecutors have the burden to prove that you knowingly and intentionally possessed the illegal substance, or had control over the substance, and you did not have a valid prescription for the drug to take for medicinal purposes. This all must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. While this can be a difficult threshold for a prosecutor to reach, it happens all of the time and when it does, you are facing a drug possession conviction.

Aggressively defending you against all drug possession charges.
Texas is notoriously tough on drug crime. While the penalties for drug possession will vary widely, they can be extremely severe. This is not to mention the fact that you will have a mark on your permanent criminal record if convicted.
Penalties for a drug possession conviction will largely depend on:
- Type of drug
- Amount of drug
- Past conviction(s)
- Possession of additional drug paraphernalia
Texas law divides drugs into four different classes, each class has its own set of penalties. It is important to mention that marijuana does not fall into any of the four classes and is classified on its own. A drug possession conviction, regardless of the class of drug, can result in:
- Driver’s license suspension
