Penalites can include a mandatory minimum of five years in prison, thousands of dollars in fines and fees and lengthy probation terms. If you have been charged with a federal drug offense, it is important to act quickly to begin planning your defense.
Former Prosecutor Defending You Against Federal Drug Crimes
At The Carreras Law Group, P.C., we aggressively represent clients facing federal drug charges in Texas Northern District and Eastern District courts. As former prosecutor, our federal drug attorney has the experience and skill needed to defend clients facing a wide range of federal drug charges, including those relating to:
· Powder Cocaine
· Crack Cocaine
If you have been charged with possession, trafficking, importation or manufacture of any controlled substance, do not speak to police without an attorney present. The more information you provide the police, the more difficult it may be to avoid a conviction.
We Fight to Protect Every Aspect of Your Life
Federal drug offenses can have a wide-reaching impact on your personal life, even long before a conviction. Our attorney offers the assertive and comprehensive representation you need to protect every aspect of your life, including your:
· Freedom: Depending on the substance involved, a conviction may result in a mandatory five or ten-year prison term. We aggressively explore every available legal strategy, including trial, plea negotiation and alternative sentencing programs to prevent the loss of your freedom.
· Future: Many people focus on the length of a prison term, or probation period when fighting a drug charge. While these are important things to consider, a conviction can impact your life for years after a prison stay or probation ends. A federal drug conviction can make it difficult to get a job, rent an apartment or obtain a loan. We always consider the long-term when creating defense strategies.
· Finances: Drug convictions can lead to thousands of dollars in fines and court costs. Federal prosecutors also have the legal authority to seize property associated with the manufacture, storage or transportation of controlled substances. We make every effort to protect your finances and property throughout your legal proceedings.
· Privacy: Federal proceedings can be very public affairs. Our team makes every effort to shield you and your family from the public eye and to protect your reputation and your loved ones from unnecessary outside attention.
Whatever charges you may face, we fight to limit all potential penalties and negative repercussions stemming from a conviction.
