Drug Crimes

Being suspected of a drug crime can put your future and freedom on the line. You need legal representation that will actively work to minimize the stakes.

Based in Hurst, Matthew Pillado PLLC can represent you throughout your defense case. We are determined to get the optimal outcome, whether that means proving your innocence or reducing the penalties to avoid jail time. A charge is not a conviction; you still have hope.

Strong Advocacy On Your Behalf

We can help you confront challenging drug charges such as:

  • Possession of hard drugs or prescription drugs
  • Drug dealing or manufacturing
  • Drug trafficking
  • Marijuana-related charges, including possession and at-home cultivation

The potential penalties depend on the type of charge, the amount of illicit substance involved and other factors. We can take an aggressive stance to protect your rights — and possibly reduce or dismiss the charges.

We Look For Alternative Solutions

In many drug cases, the root issue is addiction. Some of the most dangerous illegal substances are also the most addictive, and individuals who face criminal charges may need medical help as opposed to jail time.

For this reason, some Texas courts offer a special program for nonviolent drug charges. The program can involve treatment and supervision to give the person a second chance to recover from an addiction or prove that they can stay clean.

This option is not automatically available for all drug possession cases, however, so speak to an experienced attorney to learn if it might apply to your case. Our founding attorney, Matthew Pillado, can assess your case to help you understand your options.
