Dallas Drug Crime Defense
Marijuana | Heroin | Cocaine | Meth | MDMA / Ecstasy | Hallucinogens
FBI crime statistics indicate that drug-related offenses make up one third of all arrests nationwide. Because drug laws exist at both the state and federal level, you could be prosecuted by both courts if charged with possession, distribution, manufacturing or trafficking of illegal drugs, including marijuana, methamphetamines, cocaine and heroin.
Obtaining experienced legal help immediately is vital if you are arrested or if a police officer questions you about a situation that might lead to misdemeanor or felony drug charges. The knowledge, experience and legal skills of the lawyer who represents you will play an important role in the outcome of your case.
The Law Office of Phillip Hayes, in Dallas, Texas, has extensive experience in a broad range of serious drug crimes and represents clients in state and federal courts in Texas.

Experienced Dallas Drug Crime Defense Lawyer
Convictions in drug cases often result from a police search and seizure that violates the defendant’s rights under the Fourth Amendment. A search may occur during a routine traffic stop, in a home or place of business, or at a public event if a law enforcement officer suspects the use or presence of illegal drugs or narcotics.
Regardless of whether the officer had a search warrant, a skilled criminal defense attorney will always investigate the legality of the search and the procedures followed at the times the accused was detained, when evidence was seized and when statements were made.
At the Law Office of Phillip Hayes, we do not simply process cases by persuading clients to accept a plea or jail sentence. Criminal defense attorney Phillip Hayes will carefully evaluate all the circumstances surrounding your case and aggressively fight the charges filed against you. He will ensure that you understand any plea bargains offered and have all the facts you need to make informed decisions. If the best course of action is going to trial, he is always prepared to craft an aggressive defense on your behalf.
