Drug Crimes

Marijuana Possession / Cocaine Possession / Delivery of a Controlled Substance

State and federal authorities in Travis, Williamson and surrounding counties dedicate substantial resources to the prosecution of drug cases. Whether you are charged with possessing a small amount of marihuana or delivering multiple kilos of cocaine, you will need experienced representation as you navigate through the criminal justice system. Not only will an accused potentially end up with a criminal conviction and a jail or prison sentence, many of the law enforcement agencies have been aggressively working to seize money, vehicles and other assets they believe were related to the drug charge.

Todd Nickle is a former prosecutor with extensive experience handling all types of drug cases. These cases involve complicated search and seizure issues and you will need an attorney with the knowledge to thoroughly investigate all aspects of your case. Not only has Todd handled thousands of drug cases during his career, while he was an Assistant District Attorney in Williamson County he was selected to create a law enforcement training program for local police agencies. During that time more than 1,000 police officers from across Texas came to Georgetown as Todd lectured on legal topics including traffic stops, drug interdiction, confidential informants and search and seizure.
