Arrested for Drugs in Texas? We Can Help.
Many people mistakenly think that being arrested for possessing a small amount of marijuana is not too serious. The truth is, if charged with drug possession, you can face up to a year in jail, a heavy fine and the loss of your driver’s license. You will also have a permanent criminal record.
Possessing even a small amount of marijuana or other drug in Plano, Texas, or anywhere throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex can get you in serious trouble with the police and the Collin County prosecutor.
At the Shapiro Law Firm, our criminal defense team offers more than 40 years of skill, knowledge and experience fighting to protect the rights and freedom of people arrested for drugs. We have experience across the full range of narcotic offenses. We know the prosecutor’s strategies and the judge’s expectations. Most importantly, we never forget that a conviction for a drug charge will haunt your record forever.
Defense Experience You Can Rely On
With more than four decades of successful defense representation, we have earned a reputation for integrity. When we handle a case, judges and the district attorney’s office know that our preparation will be thorough and clear. You have certain constitutional rights, and we will fight to protect them. We represent individuals charged with both state and federal drug crimes, including:
- Illegal possession of prescription medications, including sale and unlicensed pharmacy charges
- Sale and possession of marijuana, as well as cocaine and all other illegal narcotics
- Methamphetamine possession, manufacturing and delivery
We Can Help Determine if You Are Eligible for Deferred Adjudication
The state of Texas offers an option for first-time offenders in which a conviction will be set aside upon the successful completion of a sanctioned drug rehabilitation or awareness program. Deferred adjudication is a type of probation that allows you to avoid the stigma of a criminal conviction. Our lawyers will explore whether this option may be right for you. If you are not eligible for a dismissal or an acquittal, we will work vigorously with the prosecution to find a deferred adjudication and narcotics program that is the best fit for you.
