Drug Possession




Possession of Marijuana / Possession of a Controlled Substance

If you have been arrested for possession of marijuana, possession of a controlled substance, or any other drug crime, please contact me as soon as possible to begin protecting your future.

As a criminal defense lawyer, I have been successfully defending those accused of all types of drug crimes since I left the Tarrant County DA’s office in 2000. I work hard for my clients, with a goal of putting them in a position that will prevent the arrest and charge from following them into their futures. I cannot promise a result, but I can promise that I will do everything within my power to accomplish that goal.

When clients first come to see me, they often don’t realize the many unforeseen consequences to a marijuana or controlled substance charge. My goal when you hire me is to do more than keep you out of jail – my goal is to protect every aspect of your future.

Most Common Drug Crimes:

  • Prescription Drug Fraud

Note to Parents of a Child/Teenager charged With Possession of Marijuana:

I realize, as a parent, you may be facing the dilemma of whether you should even consider hiring an attorney on your child’s behalf. I’m sure your emotions right now range from incredible sadness to raging anger and every emotion in between. There are many different parenting approaches when a child has done something wrong. I work with parents who feel strongly that “tough love” and facing consequences are the best teachers, and believe me, in many instances I agree.

However, a criminal record is a huge burden and obstacle to carry into adulthood. I find it heartbreaking when a teenager, after making a poor decision, tries to turn things around, by working hard, they begin to make decisions and make good grades, but still gets turned down for opportunities time and time again because of a mistake they made that continues to follow them years later.


Possession of marijuana is a serious crime. However, many people – adults, teenagers or kids today don’t think of it as a crime. In our schools, it is such a common occurrence that many kids don’t believe they are really doing anything that wrong. “It’s no big deal”, “Everybody does it”, you may have heard. However, a conviction for any drug crime is a big deal. When it comes to your future – future employment, relationships and activities, it can dramatically (and adversely) affect you.

Not everyone does it and certainly not everyone is caught. But if your child is arrested and facing charges on a possession of marijuana case you must have a good possession of marijuana lawyer who will do everything in his power to prevent the charge from following them into adulthood.

As a criminal defense lawyer for over 16 years, I know a criminal record for possession of marijuana, possession of a controlled substance, driving while intoxicated, assault, theft, etc. is an incredibly large burden to carry into adulthood. It is so disappointing when a child jeopardizes their future. 

I will work hard for your child so that the mistake they made when they were only seventeen does not follow them for the rest of their lives.

As your criminal defense lawyer, I will work hard for your child and do everything I can to give your child that second chance.
