Drug Possession and Trafficking

Houston Drug Possession Defense Lawyer


Experienced Defense of Drug Trafficking in Sugar Land & Pearland, Texas

There is a fine line between charges of drug possession and drug trafficking. If the amount of the drug is high enough in the applicable crime, it may be considered trafficking and penalties can increase significantly.

If you have been charged with drug possession or drug trafficking in Texas, it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible. At the Law Office of Joseph Salhab, we defend people charged with drug crimes. For a free initial consultation, contact our law office by calling 713-528-1005 or toll-free at 713-528-1005.

Drug Possession and Trafficking Defense

Attorney Joseph Salhab defends clients charged with possession and trafficking of the following controlled substances:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Methamphetamine (meth)
  • Prescription drugs, including Codeine, Oxycontin, Oxycodone, and Xanax

The difference between drug possession and trafficking has nothing to do with intent. Even if an individual was in possession of a small amount of marijuana and intended to sell it, he or she may be charged with possession and not trafficking. It all depends on the amount of the drug involved.

Defense of Drug Crimes

The War on Drugs has taken its toll on the prison system in the United States. Thousand upon thousands of individuals convicted of non-violent drug crimes fill our prisons. This is partially due to the harsh penalties for misdemeanor and felony drug crimes.

At the Law Office of Joseph Salhab, we understand the effects that drug crime convictions have on individuals and families. We work hard to minimize the impact of a drug crime. We have a successful record of helping people get the best possible outcome for narcotics offenses in the state and federal courts.
