Texas Alcohol & Drug Lawyer
Almost any drug charge in Texas can result in serious consequences to your future. It is imperative that you protect yourself by hiring an experienced defense lawyer to ensure all of your legal rights will be protected. At Ashmore & Ashmore, we will work to resolve, reduce or dismiss the charges against you, or fight to put you in the best position for a positive resolution of your case. Once detained for a drug-related offense, other factors can lead to additional charges; these factors include 1) large amounts of drugs; 2) the use of drugs in drug-free zones like the areas around schools and other areas used by children; 3) prior convictions; 4) the possession of multiple cell phones or pay and owe sheets; 5) the division of drug quantities into small, even amounts; and 6) the presence of firearms while using drugs. I will analyze your case on a step-by-step, basis from the first police contact to any interviews or investigations, to determine what defenses are available to you. If you have been charged with a drug-related offense, I will work to aggressively represent your interests, within the bounds of the law, to have your drug charges favorably resolved.
STUDENTS CHARGED WITH CRIMES
At Ashmore & Ashmore, we also represent college and university students who are charged with misdemeanor or felony crimes ranging from alcohol-related offenses (public intoxication, underage drinking) to criminal mischief, and assault. Contact our office to learn how our experience and proactive approach to criminal defense can benefit you.
For the less serious range of offenses, your main problem will be to resolve the case on terms that will avoid damage to your current academic status and future professional opportunities while protecting your interest in an expunction. In felony cases that present a substantial risk of imprisonment, we do everything possible to get the charges dismissed, defeat them at trial, or negotiate a plea that minimizes the harm to your future prospects.
MAJOR TRAFFIC OFFENSES
Unlike a speeding ticket or running a stop sign, certain traffic offenses are considered criminal offenses. Depending on the circumstances, you could face jail, big fines and lengthy suspension of your driver’s license. You could be subject to serious penalties and unforeseen ramifications of any conviction for a major traffic offense, which can be either misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the offense, prior convictions and aggravating factors.
At Ashmore & Ashmore we can advise you of where you stand and fight for you to prevent the worst consequences.
