Texas Tough Drug Laws Require an Experienced Successful Drug Lawyer

The laws surrounding controlled substances, illegal drugs and marijuana are complex and tough in Texas. Drug convictions involving marijuana, cocaine, crack, heroin, LSD, mescaline, amphetamines, methamphetamine (meth, ice), Ecstasy, GHB (water), steroids, testosterone, and prescription narcotics and drugs such as Xanax, Vicodin (hydrocodone), Codeine, Hydrocodeine Morphine, SOMA, and OxyContin (oxycodone) can result in lengthy prison sentences and heavy fines as well as seizure of property and assets.

A Positive Track Record Of Success With Drug Cases:

These case studies do not guarantee results in any specific case. The outcome of each case depends on the facts and the law in that case. 

  • Possession of Certain Chemicals With Intent To Manufacture a Controlled Substance

    Possession of Certain Chemicals With Intent To Manufacture a Controlled Substance
    RESULT: Evidence suppressed and case dismissed.

    The police had gone to my client's house to arrest a woman, but found she was not there. But the police, perhaps in their excitement to execute their arrest warrant, pointed their firearms at my unarmed client. Then the police asked for my client's consent to search his house. (!?!) Saying "no" to a request to search your house isn't so easy when you are staring at the business end of a handgun.

    Possession of a Controlled Substance
    RESULT: Case dismissed.

    Client was approached by police asking him to "work off" his case. I advised client on how this process works.

    Possession of Marijuana Class B Misdemeanor
    RESULT: Case dismissed.

    Client was pulled over legally, but the police detained and searched my client illegally.

    If you look closely at the Dismissal Form, you'll see an "x" next to a sentence that says "The case has been refiled." That means that the case was reduced from a marijuana case to a non-marijuana related charge my client was willing to plead guilty to. The charge my client did plead to was one that can be erased (expunged) off his record.

  • Possession of Marijuana State Jail Felony

    Possession of Marijuana State Jail Felony
    RESULT: Case dismissed.

    My investigation showed that someone else was in fact guilty of the crime. Ultimately, the guilty person confessed and my client was released from jail. If you look closely at the Dismissal Form, you'll see an "x" next to a sentence that says "The evidence is insufficient."

  • Possession of Marijuana Class A Misdemeanor

    Possession of Marijuana Class A Misdemeanor
    RESULT: Case dismissed.

    Law enforcement officers had hit HH's house early in the morning with a search and arrest warrant. My client was asleep in bed when the police searched her home. Because of irregularities with the warrant and because of difficulties in proving my client possessed the marijuana, the prosecutor offered a dismissal.

    If you look closely at the Dismissal Form, you'll see an "x" next to a sentence that says "The case has been refiled." That means that the case was reduced from a marijuana case to a non-marijuana related charge my client was willing to plead guilty to. The charge my client did plead to was one that can be erased (expunged) off his record.

  • Possession of Marijuana

    Possession of Marijuana
    RESULT: Cocaine case not indicted. Marijuana case dismissed.

    Client was pulled over for a traffic violation. Police officer smelled marijuana. Then client admitted that he had cocaine on him. Client was initially denied admission to the SHORT Court (drug court) program on basis of client's alleged criminal history. With investigation, we showed that the criminal history basis for denial of admission into the SHORT Court program was inaccurate.
