Texas has some of the harshest penalties in the nation for drug trafficking and other drug offenses. The legislature and courts have increased the enforcement of drug offenses, and the resulting penalties. The consequences for a conviction vary, but can include heavy fines and possible incarceration. In fact, the lowest possible offense still entails a jail sentence of 180 days to two years and fines up to $10,000, and trafficking of more than 400 grams of a substance can even result in a life sentence in prison and fines of up to $250,000.
Given these life-altering consequences, immediate action is needed to protect your rights. Whether you have been charged with an offense or are being investigated, it is important to obtain the counsel of an experienced criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. The law offices of Phillip A. Linder can provide the aggressive defense that you need for drug trafficking charges involving marijuana, methamphetamines, cocaine, heroin or prescription narcotics. This includes the following offenses:
- Illegal sale and trafficking
- Interstate trafficking or drug distribution
- Drug importation
- Drug conspiracy
Thorough, Aggressive Criminal Defense Representation
Marijuana possession, drug smuggling and trafficking charges often rely on a police officer's search of your vehicle or property. However, if there was an illegal search and seizure involved in your case, the court will have no choice but to remove that illegally obtained evidence from your case.
Attorney Phillip Linder has more than 20 years of experience in criminal defense, including as a prosecutor with the Dallas County District Attorney's Office. He has the unique qualifications required to effectively defend clients against a range of drug trafficking offenses. He will lead our team in the meticulous investigation of the evidence against you and examination of how it was obtained. We will then determine if evidence was obtained in a way that violates your constitutional rights, and use that and other discovery to build a strong defense on your behalf. Our goal is to help you obtain the most favorable results to your charges.
