Dallas Drug Trafficking Attorneys
While drug possession charges can be frightening in their own right, these charges are commonly elevated to drug distribution charges when law enforcement believes that an individual intended to distribute the controlled substance in his or her possession. Since drug trafficking carries mandatory minimum sentencing guidelines upon conviction, these charges should be met with committed and experienced legal representation.
If you have been charged with drug trafficking in the Dallas area, our legal team can help you anticipate how those charges are likely to be pursued against you and, thereby, how best to defend against them.
Distinguishing Between Drug Trafficking and Possession Charges
Under the right circumstances, drug possession charges may become drug trafficking charges. While every case is different, the following factors commonly contribute to the elevation of the offense in the Dallas area:
- The amount of controlled substance present
- The presence of a device intended to weigh the substance
- The presence of a packaging implement
Our Dallas legal team will work with you to develop a comprehensive legal strategy that challenges every aspect of your arrest in an effort to reduce or, ideally, altogether eliminate your charges.
