Marijuana and Drugs Legal Services

Even small amounts of marijuana (also spelled marihuana, or pot) can mean jail time and the loss of driving privileges in Texas.  Additionally, unless handled properly, a first offense for marihuana can lead to deportation for those who are not US citizens.  Other drugs will almost assuredly cause these problems.

Overzealous law enforcement officers will often go beyond the law (and beyond your Constitutional rights) when they accuse someone of drug possession or drug trafficking. If you have been charged with drug possession, David Michael Ryan & Associates will begin your defense by challenging whether law enforcement had a legal reason to make contact with you and/or had probable cause to conduct a search.  We do so seeking a dismissal of all charges.

Whatever circumstances caused your drug crime arrest, you can be assured our experienced attorneys will defend your rights. We handle drug cases involving possession, manufacturing, and distribution of controlled substances including street drugs (meth, heroin, crack cocaine, marijuana) and prescription drugs (Oxycontin, Percocet and Xanax).

We can also ask an independent lab to test the evidence. Some cases end immediately when the alleged evidence is not, in fact, an illegal substance.  Please read the Houston Chronicle article on US v. Nguyen (under cases on this site), in which the US government dismissed the case against David Michael Ryan's client on the second day of trial.

As experienced trial lawyers, we are willing to go to trial when the facts of the case make a criminal trial the best course of action. We will force the state or federal government to prove the evidence was lawfully obtained, the evidence is in fact an illegal drug or controlled substance, and the charges are fully substantiated. We police the police and protect your rights.

A drug possession charge, drug manufacturing charge, drug trafficking, or drug distribution charge is serious, and should be handled by experienced criminal defense lawyers. You will find that experience at David Michael Ryan & Associates.
