Firm Overview

In Texas, drugs are classified in four penalty groups, penalty group one providing for the most punishment. Generally, penalties are progressively higher from possession to delivery to manufacturing. Depending on the amount, simple possession of a drug in penalty group four or three may be a misdemeanor. Whatever the charge, conviction for a drug offense may carry with it collateral punishment, such as a driver's license suspension.

There is much to lose with a drug conviction. Even a deferred adjudication probation for a State Jail felony can remain on a person's record for more than a decade. Employers are cautious about hiring people who have a history of drug use and it is now exceptionally easy to get such information from online criminal record sources.
