Even a minor drug charge is cause for concern because it can negatively impact job-related background checks, university applications and other future endeavors.
Harris Cook, LLP, understands Texas drug laws, particularly those related to possession of controlled substances. We provide strategic, aggressive, thorough representation to clients accused of marijuana possession — whether they were accused following a traffic stop, an arrest for another offense or other circumstances.
What You Should Do Now
If you are concerned about a marijuana charge, there is no substitute for legal advice. In general, there are three things you should know about how to proceed:
- Do not talk to the police: You and your family members should not talk to the police about a drug possession case until you have consulted an experienced lawyer.
- Get strong legal representation: If you want to successfully navigate a system that can be confusing and hostile to defendants, you need strong defense representation.
- Explore your options: Make sure you explore your options for addressing the charges you face. You may be eligible for deferred prosecution, particularly if you are a first-time offender; you may want to negotiate with the prosecution or you may be able to successfully fight the charges.
