Drug Crimes

Law enforcement officials and government prosecutors are highly motivated to secure convictions in drug crime cases. Rash assumptions and circumstantial evidence frequently form the foundation of the government’s case in these matters, and a person’s constitutional rights sometimes seem more like guidelines.

The government is prepared to dedicate an unlimited level of resources to the pursuit of a conviction in your case. It is imperative that you have the capabilities of a skilled and determined defense team behind you from the start. At Kearney Law Firm, Fort Worth drug crime defense attorneys represent clients throughout Texas and across the United States in all types of state and federal cases.

Presenting an Effective Defense in Your Case

There are a number of strategies that can be employed in the process of defending a drug offense. Illegal search and seizure, flaws in the search warrant, overstepping the authority granted by the search warrant and other issues can create grounds for having key evidence suppressed. We conduct a thorough investigation of your case, identify any issues that could constitute a violation of your rights and take appropriate steps to protect your interests.

We have defended clients against a wide variety of drug-related offenses, including:

  • Drug sales and distribution
  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Drug manufacturing
  • Drug trafficking
  • Conspiracy to traffic or sell drugs

Drug Possession | Seeking Rehabilitation Over Incarceration

In many drug possession cases, incarceration is not in the best interests of the accused. A person’s addiction is the heart of the problem and the primary catalyst for the criminal activity. In these situations, a comprehensive drug rehabilitation program can get the addiction under control and put an end to the criminal activity.

Whenever possible, we advocate for treatment of the drug addiction as an alternative to criminal penalties. We frequently refer our clients to seek treatment for their addiction issues and encourage the court to support their efforts to overcome the addiction rather than putting them in jail or imposing other penalties.
