If you have been charged with, or are under investigation for, offenses related to any controlled substance, it is important to find a criminal defense lawyer who understands controlled substances laws and can help you fight drug charges. Drug possession charges, and other controlled substance charges, can carry hefty penalties, including large fines and prison sentences.
In most cases, the amount of drugs involved in the charge will dictate whether the case will be tried in Texas state or federal court. Extenuating circumstances, such as a personal addiction, can often be used to mitigate punishment, and an experienced Board Certified criminal trial lawyer can help you achieve dismissal or sentence reductions.
