Why call my firm first?

At the Law Office of John L. Venza Jr., I provide clients with tailored and aggressive criminal defense representation in many different types of cases, including possession of drugs. My firm is dedicated to protecting your rights throughout the entirety of your case. As a former prosecutor for the state of Texas, I have handled many drug cases. I pride myself on offering a unique perspective as to how the other side will approach the charges against you.

Types of Substances

Drug possession charges can be leveled if an individual is in possession of any of a wide range of narcotics and controlled substances, including:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine (or crack cocaine)
  • Ecstasy (MDMA)
  • Meth (crystal meth or methamphetamine)
  • Xanax
  • Oxycontin
  • Vicodin

The types of punishments that apply to drug convictions vary with the amount and type of drugs. Whether the case falls under state or federal jurisdiction has an impact on the punishments as well. The penalties can range from probation and fines to lengthy prison sentences. If you need a Fort Bend lawyer for a drug crime do not hesitate to get in touch with my office immediately.

How My Skill and Experience Can Work for You

For example, I will - when appropriate - have a client submit to urinalysis while out on bail. Assuming the client is able to remain drug-free while the case is pending, the negative drug tests can then be presented to the D.A. to help cast the client in a positive light, which will usually have a favorable impact on plea negotiations with the D.A. Every case is unique, and I am ready to begin working on a custom strategy for you.

  • I have successfully handled cases for clients accused of possession of drugs in state courts all around southeast Texas.
  • My knowledge of the arguments that are associated with the various state and federal charges is extensive.
  • I can stand up for your rights.
  • I have successfully argued for the suppression of drugs or evidence in cases, resulting in charges being dismissed.
