Aggressive legal representation for Houston and Harris County residents charged with possessing marijuana or other controlled substances
Texas cases related to the possession of a controlled substance may be either a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the amount and type of narcotics. These narcotics may be traditional street drugs such as marijuana, heroin, methamphetamine, or a host of others. If you are charged with misdemeanor possession, then you will face charges in the County Court system. If you are indicted for felony possession or felony distribution of controlled substances, then your case will take place in District Court. Drug charges have a lasting impact on your record and can follow you for the rest of your life.
