Peter Barrett Dallas Criminal Defense Attorney

Experience Makes The Difference

The Experienced Advocacy You Need When Facing Texas Drug Charges

In the state of Texas, prosecutors take drug crimes very seriously, and they will push for the harshest penalties under the law. This means that even first-time offenders with no previous criminal record could be facing mandatory jail time, excessive fines and a permanent criminal record. If you’ve been arrested or are being investigated for a drug crime, you should not hesitate to begin building the defense you need.

When it seems as though the odds are against you, working with our team at Peter Barrett: Dallas Criminal Defense Attorney can help improve your chances of securing a positive outcome. We fight aggressively on behalf of our clients, for cases big and small and for misdemeanors or felonies.

Aggressive Defense Against All Manner Of Drug Crimes

Due to the serious nature of drug crimes and the consequences associated with them, you will need to retain an aggressive lawyer who knows how to combat even the most complex charges. We handle drug-related offenses involving all types of controlled substances and/or narcotics, such as marijuana, cocaine, crack, heroin, methamphetamine, or unlawful possession of prescription drugs.

Drug charges could include:

If you have been arrested or charged with a drug crime, do not wait to speak with us. We act swiftly to ensure your rights were not violated through unreasonable search and seizure or an unlawful entrapment, and we work tirelessly to obtain evidence that can be used in your favor.

From going before a judge or a jury on your behalf, seeking a reduction, a conditional dismissal, deferred adjudication, probation, or mitigation of punishment, we do not simply take an easy plea bargain just to make the situation go away. When possible, we will pursue expungement or petition the court for an order of nondisclosure, which can effectively seal your criminal record from public view.

Can You Get Probation For A Felony Drug Charge In Texas?

In Texas, you can get probation for a felony drug charge. If you have never been convicted of a felony before, then Texas law mandates that the judge must give you probation. In addition, even if you have been arrested on a felony drug charge before and even if you have a previous 12.44a, the judge still must give you probation even if the state does not want to agree.
