Criminal Defense Overview
Texas Drug Charges Attorney
State and Federal Drug Crimes Defense Lawyers in Texas
The Houston law office of DeGuerin & Dickson represents those facing criminal charges for drug crimes, from possession to distribution and delivery, in state and federal court.
Drug cases often raise complex constitutional issues involving search, seizure, the right to counsel, and the right against self-incrimination. Our lawyers understand these issues and have extensive experience litigating them. Many times, our lawyers have successfully had drugs, contraband, or confessions thrown out (or "suppressed"), often resulting in dismissal of charges.
No case is too large or complex for our firm to handle. Dick DeGuerin, firm founder and lead attorney, has handled among the most high-profile criminal cases in recent Texas history. His over 40 years of criminal defense experience and skillful handling of the media have made him the lawyer of choice for people facing the fight of their lives.

Defense on Drug Possession Charges
DeGuerin & Dickson is committed to providing the best possible results for clients who are facing charges for possession, delivery, or distribution of powder or crack cocaine, marijuana, speed or crystal methamphetamine, MDMA or ecstasy, or other controlled substances. A drug conviction, even for misdemeanor marijuana possession, can affect professional licenses, college acceptance, and financial aid eligibility. It is crucial to have the best defense possible.
Property Forfeiture in Drug Offense Cases
Law enforcement is empowered to forfeit property, such as money and vehicles, that was illegally obtained or used in the commission of a crime. We have successfully fought forfeiture of property and in one case forced the state to return almost $1.5 million that was seized as a result of a search warrant in a fraud investigation. While the drug charges are criminal, forfeiture proceedings can be criminal and/or civil.
