Helping Clients Arrested While Driving Through Texas With Drugs
Medical marijuana is not permitted in Texas, regardless of the state you have come from or any prescription you may have. Law enforcement in Texas takes marijuana possession and trafficking charges very seriously. If you have been arrested for a drug crime while passing through Texas, you need a criminal defense lawyer who can vigorously defend you from these charges.
At the law office of Louis Elias Lopez, Esq., I have more than 18 years of experience defending clients from drug charges. From my office in El Paso, I can help you understand Texas marijuana laws and how they will affect you. I defend clients from all over the U.S., from California and Washington to New York and Florida, who have been arrested while driving through Texas.
To discuss your Texas drug charges with a local attorney, contact my law firm. I offer free initial consultations and I will help you pursue the best possible result in your case.
Defending Out-of-State Clients in State and Federal Court
The amount of marijuana in your possession when you are arrested impacts whether your case is in federal court or state court. It can also affect the penalties you face. The more marijuana, the greater the potential fines, jail time and other penalties.
I am experienced at handling marijuana cases at both the state and federal level. I will thoroughly investigate your case and the circumstances leading to your arrest. If there was an illegal search and seizure, I will fight to get your case dismissed. However, I prepare every case as though it were going to trial. If dismissal is not an option, I will work to minimize the penalties in your marijuana possession case.
