Accused of a Drug Crime? Your Freedom is at Stake.
Houston, Texas, Drug Charges Defense Lawyer
After being charged with a misdemeanor or felony drug charge, there is more at stake than fighting to stay out of jail. Having a conviction on your record can ruin your personal reputation and destroy your career and opportunities for other employment. A conviction can also impact whether you are qualified for government programs, including student loans. Even a misdemeanor conviction will also mean losing your driver's license, regardless of your age.
