Do I Need a Lawyer for a Drug Case?

Many people facing a drug charge ask the question, "Do I need a lawyer for a drug case?" The answer is Yes. In many drug cases, there may not be enough evidence to prove the case. The arresting officer may have violated your constitutional rights in searching your person, your vehicle or your house, especially if the search was conducted without a warrant or without probable cause. The prosecuting attorney will go to great lengths to convince you that they have the evidence to obtain a guilty verdict. Without the knowledge and the reputation of an experienced assault lawyer, the accused in a drug case stands little chance against the prosecutor.

 

Without a lawyer, the accused will not be taken seriously by either the judge or the prosecutor. A lawyer who is experienced in defending drug charges will know exactly what the prosecutor needs to prove their case against you and will expose the weaknesses of their case. With 38 years of experience as a Houston Drug Lawyers, John P. Keirnan and Michael D. Mercer will help you to achieve the best possible result in your case.
