Texas Controlled Substance Possession Lawyer
Texas lawmakers and police officers take a hard stance on the possession of narcotics. Even a small bag of a controlled substance like marijuana can find you facing misdemeanor charges in court. Accepting a plea agreement with the DA doesn't necessarily mean that you will be let off with just a slap on the wrist. If you are facing drug possession charges, a conviction will follow you around for years on your record.

Will You Go to Jail?
Getting charged with any state or federal drug offense is a frightening time. Naturally, you may be wondering whether you will go to jail if you are convicted. In many first offense cases, the prosecutor is more interested in making sure you get the help you need because putting you in jail for a possession charge isn't nearly as effective as getting you into a program that will help you avoid drugs in the future. We use our experience and knowledge of the justice system, as well as diversion programs, to help you stay out of jail and keep a conviction off of your record.
