Helping Those Charged with Drug Offenses in the Dallas Area
If you have been charged with a drug crime in Dallas, you face a multitude of adverse legal consequences if you are convicted in a court of law.

When thinking of these questions, bear in mind the best answer is to hire a

Drug cases have the potential to be complex and to involve hard evidence (typically the drug allegedly found on the defendant's person or property) and witness testimony, but with the right approach a competent attorney may be able to successfully challenge this evidence by uncovering an illegal search and seizure, mishandling of evidence or other violation of procedure or the defendant's rights. It is crucial to never lose hope in the face of Dallas drug charges.

A person commits the crime of drug cultivation when they grow marijuana in mass production with the aim of selling the drug for profit. Even though marijuana can be used for a variety of reasons, including medical purposes, but it is always illegal to grow and process marijuana for profit. Federal agencies are cracking down and becoming more equipped to discover environments where drugs are being cultivated. In addition, you may be charged with
drug manufacturing if you are producing illegal narcotics such as cocaine or heroin with the intent of selling them on a large-scale basis. Depending on the amount of drugs and the type of drug, you may find that a
drug possession charge can become elevated to include more serious punishments. If you have been caught selling, transporting or importing illegal narcotics within the United States, you may be charged with
drug distribution. For those who are caught selling a controlled substance, the penalties if convicted can be very serious.
Drug sales charges are enhanced if the sale took place near a playground or school, and possessing large quantities of a drug can result in an automatic
drug trafficking charge.
A charge for drug transportation can accompany a majority of the possible charges described above. It is incredibly important that you discuss the specifics of your situation with an experienced attorney at the D'Amore Law Firm if you have been charged with
smuggling or any other type of drug crime. When also assist clients who are interested in
alternative sentencing options and who believe that they have been subjected to search and seizure violations. We are strong advocates of each person's constitutional rights, including the right to due process and the notion that every person who is accused of a crime is innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. In addition, we believe that alternative sentencing is a responsible option for those who are first time offenders and those who have drug problems and are looking to turn their lives around. Rehabilitation has been proven to be far more effective than jail time, and it provides a better future for those who complete the program.
