The Wide-Reaching Consequences Of A Marijuana Possession Charge

Though national attitudes on marijuana might be evolving, the penalties for even a simple cannabis possession charge in Texas are still severe. Jail time and fines ranging in the thousands of dollars are standard for marijuana offenses. Along with the wide-ranging consequences of having a criminal record, the impact could be even harsher for students and younger offenders, as the charges could affect schooling and employment prospects.

At The Albarado Law Firm, P.C., lead attorney Emmanuel Albarado has years of experience as a criminal defense attorney, providing strong, aggressive counsel to individuals charged with possession of marijuana and other drug crimes, as well as those facing other criminal charges.

The Importance Of Strong Counsel

In all cases involving criminal charges, an experienced lawyer can mean the difference between having your charges reduced or dismissed and suffering the full brunt of the law. As a former prosecutor, Emmanuel Albarado understands the strategies and motivations of the state and can help you formulate legal strategies to protect yourself, your rights and your interests.

For students in particular, quality representation is important, as marijuana charges can result in school expulsion or the loss of a scholarship, in addition to hurting your ability to obtain student loans. Your driver's license may be suspended, and you may have trouble finding and keeping gainful employment.

At our firm, we strive to provide attentive, thorough counsel to clients in Denton, North Texas and around the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, including to students at NCTC, the University of North Texas and Texas Women's University. Your rights are important to us, and we will work diligently to make sure they're upheld.
