Drug Offenses


Defending People Accused of Drug Possession

With nearly 60 years of combined experience as prosecutors and defense attorneys, the attorneys at Shellist Peebles McAlister LLP understand how drug charges are prosecuted in Texas and by the state and federal government. Drug cases are often quite complex—invoking constitutional search and seizure issues, high-level scientific analysis, wire interceptions, and questionable testimonial evidence from eyewitnesses and undercover law enforcement.

The Houston-based attorneys at Shellist Peebles McAlister LLP take a legal team approach when fighting to defend you against serious drug charges and the consequences of a drug conviction. A team approach allows for significant brainstorming and the ability to employ the skills and talents of three high caliber defense lawyers in every case. Their drug defense practice includes the following criminal charges:

  • Possessing a controlled substance (with or without the intent to deliver)
  • Manufacturing or delivering a controlled substance
  • Drug trafficking and conspiracy
  • Possessing or delivering marijuana
  • Possessing or delivering drug paraphernalia
  • Prescription drug fraud
  • Money laundering

Having the legal team at Shellist Peebles McAlister LLP analyze your case is vital to a comprehensive strategy defending serious criminal drug charges. Our attorneys will work hard to develop that strategy and counter the government in both state and federal courts. And in cases where the accused actually struggles with a drug problem or addiction, the team may recommend a proactive treatment approach that can be used at the right moment to benefit the defense and shape the outcome of the case.
