A Strong Defense For Those Facing Drug Charges
The state of Texas and federal agencies try to crack down hard on drug offenders. Their focus is convictions, not underlying issues like drug addiction or the impact on families when people are given long jail sentences for dealing or possessing drugs.
At Zendeh Del Law Firm, our mission is to prevent a drug conviction and felony record if possible. We provide an aggressive defense to undermine the prosecution’s case and put you in position for a favorable outcome. Defense lawyer Jason Zendeh Del – a former prosecutor himself – has a good record of results even in complex and high-stakes drug cases.

Experienced Drug Crime Defense By An Ex-Prosecutor
Attorney Jason Zendeh Del began his career as a criminal prosecutor for the state of Texas, including hundreds of drug-related cases.

- Marijuana charges
- Felony drug possession
- Possession with intent to distribute
- Drug trafficking and sales
- Weapon enhancements
- Money laundering and criminal conspiracy

Common Questions About Drug Charges In Texas
What Qualifies As Drug Trafficking In Texas?
A number of factors could lead to a charge of drug trafficking in Texas. Depending on the factors, you could be charged with both: possession and trafficking. Mainly, the distinction between possession and trafficking involves the amount of drugs and the intent to distribute. A large amount of drugs combined with an alleged intent to distribute could result in a drug trafficking charge. Also, if the authorities allege that you transported a large amount of drugs across state lines, you could be charged with trafficking. In any case, it’s important to have an experienced drug charge defense attorney on your side if you are charged with drug trafficking. A trafficking conviction can result in significantly more serious penalties than a drug possession conviction.
What Are First-Time Drug Offender Programs?
Many Texas counties offer first-time drug offender programs that allow people to follow a program rather than face heavier criminal penalties. These programs can help people avoid jail time. If you have questions about first-time offender programs in your case, we encourage you to contact Zendeh Del Law Firm today.
Can A Drug Crime Conviction Cause Me To Lose My Driver’s License?
In many cases, yes, a drug conviction will likely result in the suspension of your driver’s license. Even if a drug crime isn’t related to driving while under the influence of drugs, a conviction can cause a person to lose their license for 180 days. However, every case is different, and you should talk to us about your specific circumstances.
The Penalties For A Drug Conviction Are Harsh
Drug crimes penalties may include jail or prison time, driver’s license suspension, fines, probation, community service and mandatory drug treatment programs. The felony record will make it hard to find employment, and a felony conviction means you cannot vote or possess firearms. Even if you have no prior convictions, you cannot expect prosecutors or judges to be lenient, especially with federal drug charges. You need the best defense you can get to challenge the government’s case or negotiate the best resolution.
