The client was arrested for allegedly having possession of marijuana.  The State of Texas believed it had a relatively easy case to prove.  My client was charged with a Class B misdemeanor, which is punishable up to 180 days in jail and a $2,000 fine.

After working on the case to develop some of the issues that were helpful to her defense and as a result I was able to gain leverage in negotiations and prosecutor agreed to reduce the Class B charge to a Class C misdemeanor paraphernalia charge with deferred adjudication.  This essentially reduced the offense to the equivalent of a traffic ticket.  And following a 6-month probation period (basically just keep your nose clean during the probation period), my client will be able to get the charge off her record—just like it never happened.  Moreover, the 6-month probation period is the non-reporting type of probation (basically just keep your nose clean during the probation period), which saves my client the fees associated with reporting probation.  My client not only saved the money on fees, she also saved valuable time since she does not have to meet with a probation officer on a monthly basis.  This reduction was a huge relief for my client and she was pleased with the result.
