When charged with drug crimes, hire a lawyer immediately. Drug charges often occur after car stops or domestic violence calls. In each instance, legal questions arise in regard to whether officers had probable cause to search a car, apartment, or house and if evidence was handled properly.

Whether you have been accused of possession of a controlled substance (PCS), delivery of a controlled substance (DCS), possession of marijuana (POM), selling drugs, growing marijuana, manufacturing methamphetamine, or any other drug offense, we will fight to obtain the best outcome possible while vigorously protecting your rights at all times.
Do I Need a Lawyer for Drug Possession Charges?
If you face drug charges, you need an experienced Sugar Land criminal defense attorney who will use the law to protect your rights and defend your freedom. In certain instances, how drugs were found or how information was obtained will determine if charges should be dismissed or if evidence should be suppressed at trial. Additionally, the use of questionable informants interested in telling investigators what they want to hear to avoid going to prison themselves raises serious credibility issues, which can be exploited at trial. We expose hearsay, unsubstantiated claims, and questionable actions on the part of police and provide strong, aggressive, and effective representation.
After a year of court, David never gave up on my case and was able to get it dismissed completely, against all odds. I would highly recommend David.
We represent clients in cases involving the following kinds of drug possession charges:
- Illegally obtained prescription drugs
If prosecutors believe any assets or property you have were acquired through proceeds from illegal activity, they may initiate a criminal forfeiture to seize the property in question. This can result in frozen bank accounts and seized cars, homes, and other property, which makes it difficult to finance a defense for drug possession charges.
Drug charges include:
- Possession of a controlled substance (PCS)
- Delivery of a controlled substance
- Possession of marijuana (POM)
- Possession of drugs or paraphernalia
- Possession with intent to distribute narcotics
- Trafficking, manufacture, or cultivation of drugs
- Prescription drug fraud
- Juvenile drug charges
- Other drug charges and drug cases
Reduce Your Charges
If there is no question of your guilt, working with prosecutors to reduce the sentence or charge against you may mean the difference between a lengthy prison sentence and a chance to start over. The court may be inclined to place you on probation if your criminal record is relatively clean and you take the initiative to seek counseling for your drug problem.
Former Texas Judge
As a Texas judge, David Hunter used to sit in judgment of criminal defendants and saw firsthand the weaknesses of some prosecution cases and the inadequacies of some lawyers’ efforts. He now uses his knowledge to provide strong, aggressive, and effective representation to those facing drug charges.
Experienced Drug Defense
We will begin your defense effort by carefully analyzing and evaluating the prosecutor’s evidence — of particular interest is how the investigation and arrest occurred. Police and detectives make errors in their search and seizure procedures, sometimes even purposefully violating the law or your constitutional rights.
We will take the time to explain your legal options and the likely outcomes of each legal strategy. Depending on the circumstances of the case and the evidence against you, we will either seek an outright dismissal of the drug charges or a reduction in the charges, or we will fight for a victory at trial. If drug court is an option, we will pursue that path for you as well.
