Houston Drug Offense Defense Lawyer
The war on drugs has made drug offenses some of the most frequently charged crimes. If you have been charged with a drug crime, you want an experienced criminal defense attorney, who understand the potential defenses and who knows how to examine the evidence against you and build a case to protect your constitutional rights.
At the Easterling Law Firm PLLC in Houston, Texas, attorney Danny Easterling has more than 40 years of experience with the criminal justice system and knows how to effectively and aggressively defend your rights.
In addition to facing prison time and large fines, a drug conviction creates a criminal record, making it difficult to obtain housing, school financial aid or employment. Danny Easterling reviews the facts of your case, looking for search and seizure violations, violations of police procedure, and violations of your civil rights, to determine the best way to structure your defense. He then works toward seeking a dismissal of the charges, negotiating a plea agreement with the prosecution, or preparing to go to trial and argue your case in front of a judge and jury.
Drug Offenses and Types of Drugs
Named a "Super Lawyer" by Texas Monthly magazine eighteen years in a row, Danny Easterling represents clients facing many different types of drug charges at the state level. These charges can include possession, possession with intent to sell, trafficking and manufacturing of a wide range of drugs, including:
- Meth (methamphetamine or crystal meth)
- Prescription drugs
We understand how to provide an aggressive defense to obtain the best possible result for the facts of your case. The potential consequences of a drug charge conviction depend on the amount of drug in question. We question the prosecution's case, how the evidence was gathered and we work to have any evidence illegally seized suppressed from your case. By reducing or eliminating the evidence of drugs, in some circumstances we are able to move to have the charges reduced or dismissed.
