Being convicted of criminal drug charges in the state of Virginia will result in penalties for either a felony or a misdemeanor. However, this will depend on many different factors. These factors include the type and quantity of the controlled substances that were involved. Another factor will be whether you are accused of possessing illegal drugs for personal use, distribution, or sale.

The evidence and details around your case are often subjective and can be open to judgment. If you have been charged with drug trafficking, for instance, it may be possible to get your charges lowered to drug possession. If you are charged with drug possession, it may be possible to get your charges dropped entirely. Call me to discuss the details of your case, and let's start working on your defense.

The facts and evidence are different for every case. You will need a skilled criminal defense attorney who knows the laws on drug crimes in the state of Virginia to help you navigate your way through the legal system. You need a lawyer who is not afraid to look into the details of your case, and who will challenge every aspect of the case to attempt to get the best outcome for you. As an aggressive drug case lawyer, I'm ready to take on your case and fight for you.

Owning, or living in, a dwelling or vehicle where drugs have been found to be present is not always the only evidence needed to convict you of drug charges. I will analyze every aspect of the prosecution's case against you to find any loopholes in their evidence.

Criminal Defense Attorney

Normally, under Virginia state law, ownership of any type of drug gear is illegal. The ownership shows that any equipment, material, or product is for the user to hide illegal drugs. A skilled drug lawyer can sometimes argue against any drug gear that was found, too. Gear could include a glass pipe, or a rolled-up dollar bill, for example. A possible defense could be to show that the gear was not, in fact, intended for the use of illegal drugs. Call me to discuss the ins and outs of your specific drug charge, and let's get to work building the best defense for your situation.
