Houston Drug Crime Attorney
Representation for All Drug Crime Charges
While debate surrounding the effectiveness, efficiency, and costs of the American War on Drugs continues, one need only to look at the prevalence of drug crime convictions in Houston and other nearby communities to know that it is still alive and well in Texas. As common as drug crimes may be, they remain extremely serious and potentially devastating to people who stand accused. If you, a friend, or a family member is facing any type of drug crime charge, allow our Houston criminal defense lawyers to fight on your behalf and protect you against serious criminal penalties. Some of the charges we are prepared to handle include:
- Cultivation of marijuana
- Prescription fraud
- Possession with intent
- Federal drug crimes
Billy Skinner has integrated both his extensive legal experience and time spent as a former prosecutor with his unyielding work ethic to produce numerous successful case results for clients who were accused of various drug offenses. From minor possession allegations to the most serious federal drug crimes, these cases pose life-altering consequences. Fully aware of how deeply these repercussions can affect clients, Billy Skinner devotes himself and our firm's resources to obtaining a case dismissal or a reduction of charges and penalties.
What to Expect After Being Charged
Drug crime charges can vary dramatically depending on a number of factors, the most important of which include:
- The type of drug allegedly involved
- The amount of the controlled substance
- The prior criminal record of the accused
Controlled substances are categorized into drug schedules, meaning that certain drugs considered to be more dangerous than others carry stiffer penalties. Penalty Group 1 drugs, such as cocaine and heroin, for example, pose the most serious penalties. Whatever allegation you face and whatever controlled substance is allegedly involved, you can be sure that our Houston criminal defense lawyers possess the experience and insight to handle your case.
As charges can vary depending on the personal circumstance involved, our legal team knows the importance of crafting customized defense strategies. Billy Skinner's focus on remaining available 24 / 7 to clients not only helps them feel more secure and comfortable during the difficult legal journey, but also allows him to gain a better understanding of the people he serves. With open communication, he can then develop strong and effective defense plans designed to address your unique needs. This includes helping clients who wish to seek alternative sentencing options such as substance abuse programs.
