Jason Trumpler
Jason Trumpler is listed as one of America's Top 100 Criminal Defense Attorneys®. Unlike many awards in the legal field, an attorney cannot buy or nominate themself into this recognition. The nominees are chosen through peer review and third-party research. They then are evaluated through algorithmic analysis that measures factors including professional experience and achievements, notable case results, community impact, and client satisfaction ratings. This is truly one of the most distinguished honors a defense attorney can earn during their career.

Drug Crimes And Their Potential Penalties

Drug Possession

Drug possession is one of the most common drug crimes. The amount and type of drug that is found affects the severity of the drug charges and resulting punishment. For example, smaller amounts may result in a Class B misdemeanor, while greater amounts of drugs in your possession can result in a more serious felony charge.

Drug Distribution

A distribution or intent to sell charge may be filed if a person is transporting or delivering a controlled substance, or if someone is in possession of drug paraphernalia such as scales and bags. Under Texas law, a drug distribution charge carries severe penalties, so it is important to contact a criminal defense lawyer.

Drug Trafficking

Texas is a border state and drug trafficking is more common here. The penalties that accompany this type of conviction can be severe. If you are charged with trafficking large amounts of controlled substances, you need a criminal defense attorney who can limit the lifelong repercussions on your reputation and freedom.

Drug Manufacturing

Manufacturing controlled substances such as meth results in harsh penalties. This type of offense is a felony, and those charged with a drug manufacturing crime may face incarceration, fines, and other penalties. Our criminal defense lawyer will review all aspects of your case to minimize the consequences of the charge.

What Is a Narcotic?


Though people still refer to all drugs as "narcotics," that term now usually refers to opium, opium derivatives, and semi-synthetic substitutes, according to the federal Drug Enforcement Administration.

Other Factors that Can Affect Your Case

The amount of the drug that is found in your possession has a significant impact. Criminal charges involving less than a gram of a controlled substance come with lighter sentences. When individuals are found with greater amounts of drugs, the penalties are greater, and more serious charges such as distribution or trafficking may be filed.

Aggravating circumstances can also affect your case. For example, if you are in possession of drugs in a school zone, you commit a drug crime in presence of a child, or use a child in commission of a crime, additional charges can be filed.

Bags of drugs
In addition to the type of drug and crime that you are charged with, there are other factors that affect your case.

The Cost of Hiring a Drug Crime Lawyer

The cost of hiring a criminal defense attorney keeps many people from seeking representation. At our Austin and Round Rock law offices, we offer free consultations with no obligations so that those charged with drug possession or other crimes can learn more about what a qualified defense attorney can offer.

In most cases, our clients can expect to spend anywhere from $2,500 to $25,000 for our defense attorney services. This price range varies based on the difficulty of the case and whether it goes to court. However, it is important to keep in mind that a criminal defense attorney can limit jail time and fines, which can help you get your life back on track.

Using Search and Seizure Laws To Your Advantage

When it comes to drug crimes, search and seizure laws play an important role. Police officers don't have the right to search people and their possessions at will. They must follow proper procedures, including obtaining a search warrant or your consent to search your home or vehicle.

There are instances in which a warrantless search of your person or property may be lawful. For example, if you are in public and an officer sees you engaging in illegal behavior, in plain view, those objects that were in plain view may be subject to search and seizure. In addition, if you are in public and an officer has reasonable suspicion that you have committed a crime, a limited search may be performed.

Jason Trumpler has undergone specialized training in search and seizure laws. He understands how illegal search and seizure can affect your case, and potentially result in dropped charges. During your case review, the Law Offices of Jason Trumpler in Austin and Round Rock can help to determine if you have been subjected to an illegal search and seizure.

How Can We
Minimize Your Penalties?

There are many effective criminal defense legal strategies that can be employed to help your case:

The Lack of Knowledge Defense

If the drugs were found in a place that several people had access to, such as a house or car, our Austin criminal defense lawyer may argue that you were unaware that you were in possession of the drugs.

The Amount Was Insufficient for Prosecution

In marijuana cases, it is becoming more common to get charges dropped by arguing that the amount of the substance found does not warrant prosecution.

Illegal Search and Seizure

Police officers must have probable cause or your consent to search your home or vehicle. If the police didn't follow lawful procedures, your charges may be dropped.

The Medication Was Prescribed By Your Doctor

If you were charged with the unlawful possession of prescription drugs, our criminal defense attorney can argue that the medication was prescribed by your doctor and being used as directed.

No History of Criminal Offenses

If you don't have a history of committing crimes, our Austin firm can use this to your advantage and seek a lighter sentence. By agreeing to drug classes, rehab, and reforming your life, we can get your charges dropped or reduced.

DWI vs. Drug Charges


A DWI charge can be filed when a driver is under the influence of alcohol or drugs. A drug offense charge can be filed when a person is charged with possession, distribution, trafficking, or manufacturing drugs.

It is possible for people to be charged with both a DWI and drug offense at the same time. For example, if you are pulled over for a suspected DWI and the police officer sees illegal drugs or prescription pills in the vehicle, you may be charged with DWI and drug possession.

DWI and drug offenses are both associated with serious penalties, including incarceration, fines, license suspension, and documentation on your permanent record. Crimes such as a first-time DWI with no aggravating circumstances or possession of a gram of marijuana will typically result in lighter sentences. Still, anyone who is charged with DWI or a drug crime should speak to an attorney for legal guidance.

Clearing Your Record Through Expungement Jason Trumpler Can Help You Get a Clean Slate

Even if your drug charge is dismissed or doesn't result in a conviction, it can still appear on your criminal record. Any time a background check is run on you, whether for a new job, a new home or apartment, or even simply renting a vehicle, the charge will be clear to see. This can be unfairly limiting and make you feel like you're paying a lifelong price for your arrest, even if you were not guilty.

Expungement, also called expunction, is the legal process of permanently removing or sealing arrests or convictions from your record. Expungement does not happen automatically—there are certain conditions you must meet to qualify, such as being arrested but never having a case filed against you, having your charges dropped after the statute of limitations period expires, or being acquitted in a court of appeals. It can be trickier to get a felony charge expunged, but it's certainly possible with the help of a seasoned Austin defense lawyer like Mr. Trumpler.

Our drug crimes attorney can help you determine whether you qualify for expungement, initiate the legal process, and keep it moving forward as it should.

If you don't qualify for expungement, Mr. Trumpler can instead help you pursue an Order of Nondisclosure, which will make it so information regarding your drug charge remains on your record but is permanently sealed off from public view. 

Let us help you clear your name and put the past where it belongs.
