Houston Marijuana and Cocaine Charges Lawyers
There are No Small Marijuana or Cocaine Charges. Call Us.
In courts throughout Texas, district attorneys are zealous about prosecuting marijuana and cocaine charges to the fullest extent of the law. This often includes the prosecutors elevating or overcharging simple misdemeanor possession charges to include felony charges of possession with intent to distribute. If you are facing possession or trafficking charges for marijuana or cocaine, fighting to make sure that you aren't singled out as an example will be one of your main concerns.
Texas laws have made some methamphetamine and cocaine charges more severe than violent crimes such as assault or homicide. If you are convicted of possession of 400 grams or more, there is a 15-year minimum with no probation, even on a first offense. A misdemeanor or felony drug charge can also mean losing your driver's license if you are convicted.
Attorney Joseph Salhab has more than 24 years of criminal law experience, including years serving as a prosecutor in the district attorney's office. We understand how much pressure the prosecutor will be under to seek a conviction. Texas laws have made it a priority to aggressively prosecute even minor marijuana and cocaine charges.
The Law Office of Joseph Salhab has earned a reputation for our integrity and honest hard work to protect our clients' rights and their future. We are often able to find solutions that will keep your record clear by working with the prosecutor. In many cases, a drug education program may be available to keep you out of jail.
