Texas Drug Lawyer

Syringe g0472e046e 1920
Texas has a well-earned reputation for taking drug crimes seriously. Although crime rates peaked more than a decade ago, prison populations in Texas continue to climb, largely fueled by the “zero tolerance” attitude that politicians have taken to controlled substance offenses. Even the sale of marijuana carries the potential for a life sentence in Texas.
For these reasons, if you are arrested in Texas for an offense involving marijuana or any other drug, you need an experienced drug lawyer on your side. Call today and speak with Erick Platten.

·       Powder cocaine
·       Crack cocaine
·       Methamphetamine
·       Synthetic cannabinoids (Spice, K2, and similar drugs)
·       Ecstasy
