Defending Against Drug Distribution Charges

Drug manufacturing or distribution charges are never to be trifled with. Whether the drug involved is meth or some other controlled substance, it's important to get the strong legal representation you need to protect your rights and interests.

You can find the skilled defense you require at the law office of John M. Petruzzi. Our firm defends clients who are charged with a wide range of felony drug charges, including:

  • Drug delivery, sales and trafficking
  • Drug manufacturing
  • Marijuana cultivation
  • Operation of a meth lab
  • Narcotics and controlled substance offenses
  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Prescription drug crimes

Our firm has defended many clients who have been charged with simple drug possession. Those cases, however, are not necessarily simple to resolve, no matter how skilled your defense attorney is.

Things get even more challenging if you are facing high-level felony drug charges. Such charges can include possession or delivery of large quantities of drugs, drug manufacturing and other offenses that can result in significant prison sentences.

Put A Former Prosecutor On Your Side

Attorney John M. Petruzzi has more than 30 years of criminal law experience. Mr. Petruzzi is a board-certified criminal law specialist, as certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. He is also a former chief prosecutor in Texas felony court and a former Assistant District Attorney in Harris County.

Mr. Petruzzi understands that drug charges are often based on a questionable evidentiary foundation, which may include evidence that has been obtained as a result of an unconstitutional search and seizure. Your case could also involve audio or video evidence that is difficult to decipher or testimony from confidential informants and other witnesses who may have questionable motives or character.

By carefully examining police procedures and the prosecution's evidence, Mr. Petruzzi provides each of his clients with a vigorous defense. His objective is to get your charges dismissed. When a dismissal is not possible, he can fight your charges at trial or negotiate with the prosecutor to seek the most favorable plea agreement. Because he is a former prosecutor, he understands what evidence prosecutors must have to obtain a conviction, and he understands how to effectively communicate with prosecutors to seek the best possible resolution for his clients.
