Defending Against Drug Trafficking Charges

As one of the most heavily prosecuted crimes in the United States, drug trafficking charges will surely be aggressively pursued against you in the Dallas area. Moreover, a conviction upon drug trafficking charges typically involves a mandatory minimum prison sentence. With that in mind, it will be critical that you retain legal representation as early on in the legal process as you possibly can.

If you have been charged with drug trafficking in the Dallas area, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney who can help you develop a comprehensive legal strategy that challenges each and every aspect of your charges in an effort to reduce or, ideally, altogether eliminate the charges against you.

The Difference between Drug Possession and Trafficking

While the distinction between simple drug possession and drug trafficking can become exceedingly complex, there are a few factors that will heavily determine what charges prosecutors choose to file against you, including:

  • The amount of controlled substance discovered
  • The presence of a scale or similar device
  • The presence of bags or containers that may be used to distribute the substance

Our legal team understands just how frightening these charges can be for anyone who has been accused of this offense; our team will do everything we can to help you protect your future.
