Richmond Prescription Drug Defense Attorney


Whether driven by addiction or recreational use, misuse of prescription painkillers and other prescription-only medications is widespread.

If you are accused of drug possession, intent to distribute or other prescription drug crimes, you will need an experienced lawyer to minimize the consequences. For more than 28 years, the Law Office of Larry P. McDougal has defended those accused of all types of drug crimes. Our Richmond criminal defense lawyers serve clients throughout Fort Bend County, Texas.

Most doctors now email prescriptions directly to the pharmacy, making it more difficult and more dangerous to obtain prescription meds for improper use. However, some people will go to several physicians or pain management clinics to obtain multiple prescriptions or resort to street dealers or theft.

No matter the quantity (a few pills) or the drug of choice (OxyContin, Vicodin, ecstasy, codeine syrup "lean"), it is still a felony to illegally obtain or distribute controlled substances. We have experience with all types of prescription drug offenses, including:

  • Possession of prescription drugs without a valid prescription
  • Doctor shopping and other prescription fraud
  • Sale, distribution or theft of controlled substances
  • Unlawfully prescribing or dispensing medications
