East Texas Drug Charge Defense Lawyers
Defending your rights against drug charges in East Texas
When you consider the full range of consequences, drug charges are never “minor” charges. Even one conviction for simple possession stains your record. This can severely limit options for your career, education and more. If you have been arrested for distribution, trafficking or any other felony drug crime, prison time is a very real possibility.
You owe it to yourself and your family to hire the most capable defense counsel available. We are here to help.
