Katy Drug Crimes Defense Attorney

Sugarland drug charges lawyer

Lawyer for Possession, Distribution, and More in Fort Bend County

A majority of people arrested for drug crimes in Texas are not career criminals or large-scale manufacturers. It is more common to see drug users - people who struggle with substance abuse disorders - arrested for crimes like simple possession and other, more serious associated offenses. Being arrested and charged with a crime is often a catalyst for people to seek treatment for substance abuse. Unfortunately, the legal side of things can have a far-reaching impact on a person's life, affecting their ability to receive the treatment they need.

As a former narcotics prosecutor, Attorney Hatton understands how the prosecution is likely to approach the case and how best to develop a defense. The Hatton Law Firm PLLC is skilled in helping people who have been accused of drug crimes in Texas. Our state can be harsh in how it handles drug-related offenses. If you are facing drug charges, you need an aggressive attorney to fight for you. We will work tirelessly to prepare the best defense possible based on the circumstances of your case.

Legal Help With Cannabis Charges

Texas remains one of the few states in which marijuana and THC products are generally illegal. However, keeping this substance illegal does little to quell its widespread use. Fortunately, cannabis is in its own category of illicit substances. While cannabis crimes are less serious than most other drug offenses, you could still face serious repercussions if you are convicted of charges related to the possession, distribution, or manufacturing of marijuana or marijuana products. Our attorneys will design the defense strategy most likely to succeed in your case.

Drug Possession Defense Attorneys in the Houston Area

Drug possession is one of the more common offenses Texans are arrested for. If illicit substances are found in your possession, you could be charged with either a felony or a misdemeanor depending on the substance involved and the amount found. If you were in your car, you may also be charged with a DWI. Few cases of this nature are truly airtight. While serving as a narcotics prosecutor, Attorney Hatton learned how to identify weaknesses in a drug case and how to combat harsh prosecution. We will meticulously review the facts of your case to identify strong legal defenses that may work in your favor.

Katy Drug Distribution Lawyers

There can be a fine line between possession and delivery or intent to distribute. Often, people are charged with one of the latter, more serious offenses simply because they had a large quantity of a substance or were sharing a substance with a group of friends. It is easy to become caught up in these charges, but our attorneys can fight back on your behalf. We are often able to have charges reduced or even dismissed, and we will do all we can to secure a similar result in your case.

Drug Manufacture Attorneys in Fort Bend County

The idea of manufacturing drugs tends to invoke imagery of meth labs or massive grow operations, but the actual definition of drug manufacturing in Texas is far broader. Many defendants are surprised to learn that they have been charged with this serious felony offense simply because they possessed items that are considered to be related to drug manufacturing, such as baggies or scales. A strong criminal defense designed by experienced attorneys is essential to protecting your rights and freedom, and The Hatton Law Firm PLLC can provide just that. Having experience as a narcotics prosecutor, Attorney Hatton understands how to fight back against the state's tactics in this type of case.
