About The Law Offices of Sue Berkel
The Law Offices of Sue Berkel has extensive experience defending the rights of those accused of marijuana possession. An attorney experienced with marijuana cases will be able to access the circumstances of your charge and find weaknesses or holes in the prosecution's case. For example, in order to use evidence against you, a police officer must have very specific reasons to conduct a search. Alternatively, a marijuana defense lawyer may be able to strike a deal with the prosecution to reduce your case to a lesser charge or delay ruling on your case. Many Possession of Marijuana cases get dismissed in Travis County and Williamson County. While no guarantees can be made, it's indisputable that having an experienced marijuana lawyer can pay off when compared to the full range of problems a drug conviction will bring. Factors that affect the possibility of dismissal include the amount of marijuana, prior convictions, the legality of the search, and the willingness to take classes and/or perform community service.
