Overview of Drug Offenses in Texas

Texas law categorizes drug offenses based on several factors, including the type of controlled substance, the amount involved, the intended use (possession, distribution, manufacturing, etc.), and the presence of any aggravating circumstances. Penalties can vary significantly, ranging from fines and probation for minor possession cases to lengthy prison sentences for more severe charges like trafficking or manufacturing.

How Vargas Guerra LLP Can Assist You

Personalized Case Analysis: Every drug offense case comes with its unique set of circumstances. We begin with a detailed examination of your case, considering all aspects of the arrest and charges to develop a tailored defense strategy.

Evidence Evaluation: A critical component of our defense strategy involves scrutinizing the prosecution’s evidence. We assess the legality of the search and seizure, the accuracy of any drug tests, and the credibility of witness statements to identify potential weaknesses in the prosecution's case.

Legal Defenses: Depending on your case, several legal defenses might be applicable, such as challenging the factual basis of the charges, arguing for the exclusion of illegally obtained evidence, or asserting that the substances were for personal use and not for distribution. We explore all avenues to build a strong defense on your behalf.

Negotiations and Plea Agreements: When appropriate, we negotiate with prosecutors to reduce the charges or penalties, aiming for alternatives to incarceration, such as drug treatment programs or probation. Our experienced attorneys are skilled negotiators who prioritize your best interests.

Trial Advocacy: If your case proceeds to trial, our legal team is prepared to defend you vigorously in court. We present a compelling case on your behalf, leveraging our legal knowledge and trial experience to fight for your rights and freedom.
