Can I beat my drug charge?

When defending clients on drug offenses, they always ask whether or not they can beat the charges. Of course, no attorney worth his or her salt will ever promise a client a certain outcome in court. But that doesn't mean that an extensive review of the evidence can't provide a competent criminal defense attorney with a good idea of a client's chances in court.

The meth trend in texas

While a widely reported topic, especially on the dangers of addiction, the realities of methamphetamine use in America are much more grim. An overwhelming number of Americans have reported using the drug, and specific areas in the country have high concentrations of meth use and manufacturing sites. Texas has seen an increase in meth use over recent years, which has led state officials and health experts alike to ponder the availability of the drug and the severity of its effects on users.

Cyber crimes and changing texas laws

Cyber crimes pose more of a threat today than they ever have before; with advanced technology and widespread access to the Internet, millions are capable of a computer-related crime. Texas law handles these cases seriously, as they encompass identity theft, drug trafficking and other serious crimes -- not to mention the fact that computer crimes can damage reputations and risk the safety of victims.

The pros and cons of changing texas marijuana laws

Texas is hardly the first state in which lawmakers are reconsidering marijuana regulations. Yet those regulations largely revolve around the topic of medical needs instead of mere recreational purposes. Regardless of the specific purpose, marijuana possession laws in the state have long been strict and costly. Although the drug has recently been under close scrutiny nationwide, what are the consequences for those caught in possession of this controversial substance?

Effects of ride-sharing apps on drunk driving not conclusive

Many in Texas have used a ride-sharing application, such as Uber or Lyft, to get where they need to go. Yet the jury is still out on whether or not the existence of these services has any substantial effect on the rates of drunk driving in an area.
