In the state of Texas, methamphetamines are becoming more prevalent and law enforcement officials are becoming more vigorous in their pursuit of criminal convictions for meth-related crimes. Unlike some crimes involving marijuana, there are no misdemeanor charges involving methamphetamines. If you have been charged with a crime involving meth, you need to talk with an attorney about your rights as soon as possible.
You need to know what is at stake and what options you have for your defense. At the Shapiro Law Firm, in Plano, our attorneys have more than 40 years of experience representing individuals charged with drug offenses in Collin County and the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Texas has strict penalties for the possession, transportation and sale of methamphetamines, and our lawyers appreciate the significant consequences our clients are facing.

- Possession with the intent to sell or distribute
- Possession in a drug-free zone
- Drug trafficking
- Manufacture and delivery
- Drug crimes in all federal and state courts in Texas
If you are charged with the manufacturing or delivery of a drug, it can enhance the level of the charge. Depending on the amount in your possession, the charge may go as high as a first-degree felony. A conviction on these types of charges can carry jail time, fines, probation and other penalties.
