Fighting Drug Crime Accusations

The war on drugs often feels more like a war on people, with individuals facing a lifetime of consequences for nonviolent offenses. Even if you were caught with drugs in your possession, you deserve a chance at a positive future outside of the criminal justice system.

At the Law Office of Michael Benton, I have devoted my career to helping people who have been accused of a wide variety of crimes. As a criminal defense attorney, I work with people from all walks of life who face drug-related charges.

If you're in custody, call me immediately — 956-887-1611. Do not wait until you have drained financial resources through bail or bonds. I have vast experience in finding immediate solutions that reduce bonds, get you out of jail and keep you out of jail.

A Drug Charge Does Not Need To Rob You Of Your Future

The types of drug charges vary from possession of a small amount of marijuana to trafficking cocaine or intent to deliver heroin. In addition to cases involving marijuana, cocaine and opiates in the heroin family, we have handled varying degrees of criminal drug charges related to:

  • Ecstasy and other club drugs like MDMA
  • Methamphetamines
  • Prescription medication such as Adderall, Xanax, fentanyl and oxycodone

Challenging Evidence Against You

In many cases, my clients come to me after being pulled over and searched. The question immediately arises: Was that search legal or did law enforcement violate your rights? Officers need to have probable cause or a warrant to search your personal property, including your vehicle.

After years as a drug crime defense lawyer, I have developed an investigative eye. I know where law enforcement often fails to protect individual rights while investigating and arresting my clients. I can use this kind of information to explore evidence suppression methods like illegal search and seizure, entrapment and racial profiling.
