Our Drug Charge Defense Lawyer Combats These Charges in Fort Bend County
Since 2009, our founding attorney, Jay Blass Cohen, has defended clients from a host of drug-related crimes, including (but not limited to):
- Possession of a controlled substance
- Manufacturing / delivering a controlled substance
- Drug trafficking or distribution
- Drug manufacturing
- Possession with intent to distribute
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
- Prescription drug fraud
- Driving under the influence of drugs
Drug possession and other crimes involving marijuana can get complicated for many reasons––largely because it’s legal in bordering states. Our attorney routinely defends people from marijuana-related drug charges.
Our Criminal Defense Team Handles Cases Involving These Illicit Substances
Texas is very clear about what substances are legal and what substances aren’t under the Texas Controlled Substances Act. We advocate for people facing criminal charges related to:
- Meth and other stimulants
- Ecstasy (molly)
- Prescription medications
You cannot lawfully possess a prescription medication without a valid prescription. Even if you have pills that a friend gave you for anxiety, this could result in a drug charge. Whatever the type of illicit substances involved in your case, our Fort Bend criminal defense attorney at Blass Law can help you build your defense.

Defenses Our Fort Bend County Drug Charge Lawyer Can Employ on Your Behalf
When Attorney Jay Blass Cohen takes your case, he plans to secure a “not guilty” verdict or otherwise successfully resolve your case. Over the years, he’s cultivated a reputation for winning cases that other criminal defense lawyers were too afraid to take on. After assessing your case’s details and other pertinent information, at trial, we may assert that:
The Police Didn’t Have the Right to Search You
Law enforcement officials can’t pull people over and hope to find someone unlawfully possessing drugs. They also can’t kick down doors and search for drugs without warrants or probable cause, either. If we find that the police violated your rights, we could have evidence suppressed and possibly the entire case dismissed.
You Lawfully Possessed the Substance in Question
As noted, you’re within your rights to have a prescription given by a medical doctor. You’re also allowed to purchase certain substances if you’re of age. If we can show that you lawfully possessed a substance, we can definitely have your charges dropped or dismissed.
You Didn’t Knowingly Have the Drugs in Your Possession
To be convicted of a drug crime, the Texas Penal Code notes that you knowingly must be in possession of an illicit substance. So, imagine weeks after a camping trip with your friends, the police pulled you over and found marijuana in your vehicle. Your lawyer could argue that the drugs didn’t belong to you, and what’s more, you didn’t know they were in your possession. This could result in the judge and jury coming back with a “not guilty” verdict.
These are just some of the defenses we may use when fighting for your freedom. Your case’s strategy depends on your situation, and we plan to build the strongest possible defense.

What Should I Do While Facing Drug Crime Charges?
You don’t want to do anything that could make the charges you face worse. Some considerations include:
- Refraining from risky activity. Even smoking a joint with your friends at a barbeque could land you in serious hot water while your trial awaits.
- Refusing to talk to the police. There’s a difference between cooperating with law enforcement versus giving too much information. Speak with your Fort Bend County attorney about giving the police the information they need––and nothing more they can use against you.
- Limiting what you share on social media. The prosecutor will look for any information to convince the jury to convict. They may use your social media posts to paint your character in a bad light and otherwise secure a conviction.
You can learn more about your post-arrest considerations when you speak with our criminal defense attorney about the specifics of your case.
