Defending Your Rights And Freedom
Our firm will work to build a strong and effective defense for you. We will carefully review all of the issues in your case, paying particular attention to issues involving search and seizure methods, probable cause to investigate and other legal and factual matters. Whenever possible, we will make aggressive use of motions to suppress evidence in order to get a dismissal of the charge.
Diversion And Drug Treatment
Can you avoid prison by getting addiction treatment instead? Some people facing simple possession, drug dealing or other drug charges may be eligible for a diversion program. If you successfully complete the program, the charge is dismissed.
If you qualify and would like to get treatment for a chemical dependency problem, Houston & Alexander, PLLC can work with the court and the prosecutor to help get you into treatment.
