Fight Drug Charges With The Help Of A Skilled Attorney

When looking at today's headlines, it can be easy to think that this country's hard line stance on drugs has been softening, especially when it comes to marijuana. However, marijuana and other drugs are still illegal in Texas and under federal law. Even a minor possession charge can have lifelong consequences. That is why it is important to fight drug charges with the help of a dedicated criminal defense attorney.

We Defend Against All Drug-Related Crimes

We can help build a strong defense against drug-related charges, including:

  • Drug possession
  • Drug trafficking
  • Drug manufacturing
  • Intent to distribute
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia

Texas law puts different types of illicit drugs into four different penalty groups. Group one includes cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine. Group two includes ecstasy and PCP. Group three includes prescription drugs such as Valium, Xanax and OxyContin. Group four also includes controlled substances such as morphine. Marijuana is considered to be in its own separate category.

These groups are used to define the types of substances that are prohibited by the law and the amount of drugs which are considered to be illegal. We can let you know what these groups mean with regards to your case and the best way to approach your defense.
