Strong Defense Representation
Even if the prosecution has evidence against you, you have certain legal rights that can’t be violated. Often, these rights are the key to winning your case. Mr. Linder will thoroughly investigate the prosecution’s case and any evidence they’re using against you, looking for any mistakes or violations that can be used in your favor.
If he finds that any evidence was obtained illegally, such as a cop searching your car without a valid reason to do so, he’ll take immediate action to suppress the evidence and get your charges dropped. If a dismissal isn’t possible, we’ll be fully prepared to defend you in court.

“A neighborhood drug dealer that was high on drugs threatened my family. I had to shoot him while he was in my front yard. The Dallas County District Attorney’s Office charged me with murder, but Phillip convinced the Jury to find me not guilty because of self defense”
“While in college, our daughter developed a serious drug problem. She was eventually charged in two drug delivery offenses in Collin County and was looking at possibly going to prison for several years. Phillip convinced the Judge to give her a second chance.”
“A DWI threatened my pilot’s license and career as a commercial pilot. Because of Phillips’ aggressive defense the jury found me not guilty of the charges.”
“Phillip’s experience as a former prosecutor was very instrumental in getting me cleared of a false accusation in which I was falsely accused of being involved in a large federal drug conspiracy because of my relationship with some other people. Phillip took charge of my case right up front and convinced a Federal Grand Jury to no bill [dismiss] my case.”
“I am in the military and have Top Security Clearance in Washington DC. I was arrested in Dallas and falsely charged with a DWI. Had I been convicted of the DWI, I would have lost my clearance and my job. Phillip convinced the Jury to find me not guilty and saved my career”

Frequently Asked Questions
What can an attorney do to get a drug charge dismissed?
There are a variety of valid legal strategies for defending drug charges. At the law firm of Phillip A. Linder, we adapt our approach based on the details of each individual case. When it comes to drug charges, our strategy will typically revolve around getting evidence thrown out.
For example, if a cop violated your search and seizure rights or manipulated the evidence in any way, it’s not legally valid. Without evidence, the prosecution will have no valid proof and your case can be dismissed as a result.
What’s the average jail sentence for drug possession?
The sentencing for drug possession can vary significantly depending on the case and the laws of the state you reside in. For example, a first-time offender in Kentucky may receive a sentence of up to 10 years in prison, while the same charge in California will typically only result in fines.
No matter the specifics of your case, you can rest assured that we’ll do everything in our power to keep your record clean and your freedom intact.
Can I go to jail for having marijuana?
The laws regarding marijuana possession vary greatly from state to state. Depending on where you live, it may be legal, only legal for medical use, or not legal at all. For example, adults over the age of 21 can possess up to an ounce of marijuana in California with no legal penalty.
However, marijuana is still illegal for recreational or medical consumption in some states, including Alabama, Kansas, and Mississippi. Make sure that you’re fully aware of the laws regarding marijuana possession in your state, or any state that you travel to.
How can I tell if there's a warrant for my arrest?
When you first speak to our attorney Phillip A. Linder, one of the most crucial pieces of information he’ll need to know is if there’s a warrant for your arrest. If you want to find out for free, your best bet is to contact a bail bond company – most will look up your warrant status for no charge. Otherwise, some websites will verify it for a small fee.
I have to bail someone out of jail – what information do I need?
In order to save time and avoid hassles, make sure you have the following information before contacting a bail bondsman:
- Defendant’s Full Name and Birth Date
- Record of Prior Arrests
- Specific Charge
