TexasMarijuana Defense Lawyers in Texas

When choosing a criminal defense attorney in Texas for marijuana crimes, consider how much of the attorney's practice is devoted to fighting cannabis cases in state or federal court.


You should also consider ratings and reviews, and the attorney fees required for the representation.


From the simple possession of marijuana, to the cultivation of cannabis, to serious drug trafficking offenses, marijuana crimes come with serious penalties and punishments under state and federal law.


The collateral consequences of a conviction for a marijuana crime are also serious.


As more states begin to legalize marijuana for medical or recreational purposes, marijuana attorneys are also representing those in the emerging cannabis industry with business formation, licensing, and tax compliance issues.
