Prescription Drug Charges
Over the past decade, prescription drug abuse has become a widespread problem
in Texas and throughout the nation. In order to deter this issue, law
enforcement officials and prosecutors are coming down hard on those charged
with the illegal possession of prescription drugs.
Charges and penalties vary based on the type of prescription drug and the
amount in possession, but all individuals who face conviction are risking
their future. That is why it is so important for your lawyer to be a relentless
fighter, working tirelessly to protect your rights.

our attorneys will ensure that you receive it. We can help with any type

When Addiction Is An Issue In Your Drug Charge
Obtaining a full dismissal of charges is always our goal, and we have been
routinely successful in obtaining that result. However, if the evidence
stacked against you is strong, and we are unable to secure dropped charges,
we can explore alternative options to help you mitigate the consequences.
If you face prescription drug charges due to a chemical addiction, you
may have an opportunity to enlist in a recovery program as a way to reduce
your conviction penalties. While there are no guarantees, if you are serious
about getting clean, our law firm may be able to negotiate a favorable
plea with the state’s attorney, if obtaining a full dismissal is
not an option.
