A Prominent Criminal Defense Firm Serving Dallas, Fort Worth and North Texas

Providing Aggressive Defense For Drug Charges

Being arrested for a drug charge can have a lasting impact on your life. In the worst cases, felony convictions can result in significant prison terms. Even having an arrest on your record for drug possession without a conviction can affect your ability to gain employment and could be used against you in a child custody battle.

At Burleson, Pate & Gibson, L.L.P., we understand the potential future ramifications of a drug violation. We approach these cases with our client’s future at the top of our priorities. We provide aggressive defense for individuals in the Dallas/Fort Worth area who face drug charges ranging from possession to trafficking.

Creating A Strategy That Works For Your Unique Circumstances

Our attorneys know that the circumstances surrounding your case are unique. We take the time to understand your situation in order to create a strategy that will allow us to secure the best possible results for you. There are a variety of ways we might approach a drug violation defense, including:

  • Challenging drug test results
  • Disputing testimony and evidence presented by the prosecution
  • Questioning the lawfulness of search and seizure procedures under your Fourth Amendment right to due process
  • Protecting clients from charges brought about by entrapment

Whatever charges you face, the burden of proof falls on the prosecution. If crime lab analysis isn’t properly conducted or the actual drugs become lost after being seized, there may be sufficient cause for dismissal.

Protect Your Future With The Best Possible Defense

Under certain circumstances, you might be eligible to have the record of a drug-related arrest expunged. Some reasons for expungement include: if you were arrested but not charged or if your case resulted in dismissal or acquittal. Our attorneys have decades of experience with drug charges and will use their expertise to help you move forward after an arrest or conviction in the best manner possible.
