Understanding Drug Trafficking Charges

Texas is a focal point in the national conversation about drug smuggling and consumption due to its proximity to the U.S./Mexico border. This reality intensifies the enforcement efforts within the state. Our team at Juan L. Guerra, Jr. & Associates is intimately familiar with the local and federal law enforcement practices in this region, and we leverage this knowledge to shield our clients from unjust prosecution.

Sentencing for drug trafficking can come down in state or federal courts in Texas. The penalties are harsh and will escalate with each subsequent conviction. Our lead attorney, Juan L. Guerra, Jr., understands how drug trafficking charges may negatively affect your life even before the court can convict you. Rumors and social media can topple your reputation in your neighborhood and at work. We carefully prepare to contest the legality of such actions and the use of the evidence obtained from them in court.

Drug Seizures In Texas

As your defenders, we recognize that even first-time allegations can have life-altering consequences. We consider it our duty to stand by your side with a robust defense strategy. The severity of the punishment varies, influenced by factors such as the type and quantity of the substance involved. In these high-stakes situations, it’s crucial to have a team that will tirelessly advocate for your rights and strive to achieve the most favorable outcome for your case.

Identifying Drug Trafficking Offenses

Allegations of drug trafficking can encompass a wide array of activities and substances, from cocaine to prescription medications. Our legal team has deep experience with the complexities of federal and state investigative techniques, including the use of wiretaps, electronic surveillance and undercover operations. Law enforcement agencies are armed with extensive resources. We are prepared to counteract their efforts with equal tenacity. The Texas Controlled Substances Act categorizes various drugs into penalty groups that dictate the gravity of the charges. We are skilled at dissecting these classifications to your advantage.

He is relentless in the pursuit of justice, whether that means negotiating for lesser offenses or advocating for alternative resolutions.
