Don’t Underestimate The Consequences Of A Drug Conviction
Most Americans will experiment or have experimented with drugs at some point in their lives. For this reason, many people tend to think that drug use is no big deal. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for a drug conviction – especially here in Texas.
Having a criminal conviction of any kind on your record can have consequences that last far longer than any sentence you receive. A criminal history makes it much harder to find a job, get approved for good housing, get into college or take advantage of federal student loans. Even if societal attitudes about drug use have relaxed, drug convictions still carry a major stigma. Therefore, it is critical to fight to keep a conviction off your record.
No Matter The Charges, We Will Fight For You
Attorney Jose Mata has nearly 25 years of criminal defense experience. As such, he is ready to help you fight or otherwise resolve nearly any drug-related criminal charge, including:
- Drug possession
- Possession with intent to distribute
- Drug sales or trafficking
- Drug manufacturing
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
The specific sentence you face if convicted depends on numerous factors like the type and quantity of drug, how it was stored, prior convictions and any aggravating factors (such as drug dealing in a school zone or also being in possession of a firearm).
Prosecutors charge aggressively – sometimes overzealously. Our attorney will immediately work to see if charges can be reduced or dismissed entirely. If not, we will formulate a strategy to fight or resolve them as favorably as possible.
