Houston Cocaine Defense Lawyer
Cocaine Possession Texas
Perhaps no illegal narcotic has attracted more attention in the Texas legislature and courts than crack cocaine. Police arrest people for the smallest hint of cocaine possession, and prosecutors are quick to add charges of intent to distribute or sell. Oftentimes, federal prosecutors want in on the act too, if there is any suspicion that the narcotics were intended for transportation across state lines or originated across the Mexican border.
If you are facing charges for drug crimes such as felony cocaine possession, or are under investigation for trafficking or intent, you are facing a mandatory prison sentence if convicted. And, make no mistake - accepting a plea agreement from a prosecutor is a conviction that will stay on your record forever.

Whenever possible, we work toward having your charges dismissed or reduced to a non-felony charge.
