Belton Criminal Defense Lawyer

Responsive Representation For People Fighting Drug Charges

In Texas, a drug arrest can have serious consequences. Your driver's license may be at risk, and you may face fines, court costs and even jail time. You may face other consequences as well, including loss of your job or ineligibility for student loans.

The best way to protect your rights and your future is to work with a knowledgeable attorney. At my Belton, Texas, law firm, I use in-depth knowledge of Texas drug laws to represent people facing drug charges in state courts.

I represent people facing charges such as drug possession, possession of paraphernalia, driving while intoxicated (DWI) by drugs, possession with intent to distribute and other charges. As a lawyer, I can handle drug offenses related to many different types of drugs, including:

  • Marijuana
  • Methamphetamine (meth)
  • Prescription drugs (including Adderall, Oxycontin and Vicodin)

Many people who are accused of misdemeanor possession of marijuana want to plead guilty and move on with their lives. They don't realize that drug convictions in Texas carry a six-month driver's license suspension. Talk with a lawyer and be sure to consider all the consequences before you take action.

DWI And Drugs In Texas

Under Texas law, a person can be arrested for DWI whether he or she has consumed alcohol or drugs. The law makes it illegal to get behind the wheel without your normal mental or physical faculties due to alcohol or drugs.

This means that you can be arrested for driving under the influence of prescription drugs, even if those prescription drugs were legally prescribed to you. Many people are surprised that they face serious drunk driving charges for making an honest mistake. No matter what the facts of your case are, it is critical to get legal help before making big legal decisions.

Many people who face DWI charges involving drugs in Texas also face drug charges such as drug possession or possession of drug paraphernalia. I can handle cases involving multiple charges.
