Do I Need a Lawyer?

If you‘re under indictment for a felony drug case, your freedom could be at stake. In addition, felony drug charges can result in fines of up to $10,000. The Dallas drug attorneys at Berlof & Newton, P.C. will aggressively represent you in court in a manner designed to seek the best possible outcome of your case.

We handle ALL types of controlled substance cases, including:

  • Possession of a controlled substance/methamphetamine
  • Possession of a controlled substance/cocaine
  • Possession of a controlled substance/heroin
  • Possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver
  • Unlawful delivery or manufacture of a controlled substance
  • Possession of schedule I or II drugs
  • Possession of marijuana (weed)
  • Delivery of marijuana

What Penalties Am I Facing?

The seriousness of any given drug charge is determined by the type of drug, the alleged weight of the drug seized, whether you’re charged with possession or delivery of the drug (i.e., being a “drug dealer”), and, in some cases, your prior criminal history.

For example, in Texas, possession of marijuana under two ounces is a class B misdemeanor. Possession of between two and four ounces is a class A misdemeanor. Possession of between four ounces and five pounds is a state jail felony. However, possession of methamphetamine, cocaine, or heroin in ANY amount up to one gram is a state jail felony.

Am I Going to Prison?

No one can promise you the outcome of your criminal case. However, even though jail time may be possible in your case, many drug cases are resolved without the defendant ever serving time. Other possible outcomes include acquittal at trial (a “not guilty” verdict), dismissal, or probation. Also, in many instances, criminal charges are reduced to lesser offenses.

Can I Represent Myself in Court?

There’s a saying among attorneys: “A person who represents himself in court has a fool for a client.” Unless you’re an experienced drug crime defense attorney, you aren’t going to be familiar with the rules of evidence, procedure, and the applicable law that applies to your case. The State of Texas will have an experienced prosecuting attorney on its side. You need skilled legal counsel on yours.

No. We also handle controlled substance crimes throughout Dallas, Collin, Tarrant, Denton, Rockwall, Ellis, and Kaufman Counties.
