Drug Charges

Offenses relating to illegal drugs and controlled substances can carry life-altering consequences. A drug related conviction can ruin your career opportunities, make you ineligible to receive certain licenses, and can result in the suspension of your driver’s license. If you are facing drug related charges, you will benefit from the extensive experience of Adam L. Seidel, P.C.

Whether your charge is at the State or Federal level, the experienced attorney at Adam L. Seidel, P.C. will examine all the details surrounding your arrest including

  • The legality of any stop by authorities
  • Legal validity of any search warrant
  • Evidence linking the accused to the illegal substance.

In some cases, the best course is to challenge a drug charge through a motion to suppress evidence hearing. If the motion to suppress is successful, the prosecutor will often dismiss the charges. If the motion to suppress is not successful, you can still go to trial or negotiate a plea bargain.

Some clients can benefit from alternatives, such as Dallas County’s felony DIVERT Court program. Clients who gain admission and successfully complete this program can have their drug charges dismissed and their records expunged.

Some clients facing misdemeanor drug charges may be eligible for a similar diversionary program, which usually involves community service and drug testing, after which the criminal charges are dismissed and later expunged.
