Criminal Defense Overview
Drug Trafficking Defense Lawyer Texas
One of the most serious types of drug offenses is drug trafficking. From low-level traffickers to the masterminds of the operations, we at DeGuerin & Dickson in Houston represent clients at every stage of the alleged trafficking operation. Our firm founder, Dick DeGuerin, and our team of attorneys and staff handles drug trafficking and other drug-related cases in both state and federal court. This allows us to address any type of drug charges you may be facing.
We are skilled trial attorneys, having taken numerous drug trafficking and other criminal cases to trial in front of a judge and jury. When it is in our client's best interests, we may try to reach a resolution to the case with the prosecution outside of court. However, this is not always the case. To ensure our clients receive fair treatment and have their rights fully protected, we are prepared to go to court on any trafficking or related matter, such as manufacturing, smuggling, illegal drug trade or violation of DEA guidelines.

Our firm prides itself on its experience with federal drug cases. We excel at being able to apply the federal sentencing guidelines. This skill has been developed through years of handling trafficking and other drug charges. A member of our legal team can meet with you, review the federal drug charges you are facing and determine the best way in which to handle the case.
In Texas courts, drug charges are divided into different penalty groups -- groups one through four. The type of penalty group depends on the type of drug that was being trafficked. Each of the different penalty groups carries varying sentencing guidelines, up to life in prison. A member of our firm can explain the different groups and what types of penalties you may be facing based upon the details of your specific case.
In many cases, there will be a range of other types of charges that the District Attorney may attempt to apply to your case. These can include:
