Texas drug crime laws are among the nation's harshest. What might be a misdemeanor elsewhere is often, in our state, classified as a felony. Even the lightest of possession charges carry fines of several thousand dollars. Relatively minor offenses entail mandatory prison terms. Moreover, if convicted, you will have a criminal record. This can significantly affect your ability to retain or find employment, and harm your reputation within your community.
Attorney John S. Cossum has protected residents of Houston and the surrounding area from drug charges for nearly 30 years. He began his career as a prosecutor, and served as a Special Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Gulf Coast Regional Drug Task Force. He knows how the opposition operates — and how to exploit its weaknesses. He has argued extensively at both state and federal levels, and approaches all his cases with an eye toward winning at trial, or having the allegations dismissed outright.
