In Your Defense In The Face Of Drug Crime Allegations

As with any criminal matter, it is essential to contact a lawyer as soon as possible if you:

  • Are under investigation on suspicion of a drug crime
  • Have been named as a co-conspirator in a drug distribution or trafficking scheme
  • Have been accused of possession or distribution of marijuana or any controlled substance such as cocaine or heroin
  • Have reason to believe you may be accused of a drug crime involving prescription drugs such as OxyContin, oxycodone or Percocet
  • Have been arrested and charged with any drug offense

Circumstances leading to drug possession or drug trafficking charges vary greatly but a conviction has the same result in all cases: A criminal record that can be difficult to live with. A skilled defense attorney will explore every avenue that may lead to a favorable outcome such as:

  • Case dismissal
  • Reduction of charges
  • Acquittal at trial
  • Reduction of penalties

Early involvement by a skilled defense lawyer will maximize opportunities for a favorable outcome. If we represent you at Leeser Law Firm PLLC in San Antonio, we will consider factors such as:

  • The investigation and arrest: Was there probable cause? Did police conduct an illegal search and seizure?
  • The alleged illegal substance: Did police properly account for the sequence of events leading to preservation of the drugs in question? Was the substance tested? Is there reason to suspect it may have been planted or tainted?
  • Witnesses: Did someone name you as a suspect in order to lessen their own charges? Is there reason to question the credibility of someone who told police you were involved?
  • Mitigating factors: Do you suffer from a drug dependency? Voluntary treatment may position you for a much better outcome such as probation or a deferral.

This is just a partial list of possible defenses we will explore if we represent you in a drug crime case in Texas. To discuss your options in a free consultation with an experienced defense attorney in San Antonio, contact Leeser Law Firm PLLC at 210-904-8477 or send an email inquiry.
