Drug Possession & Distribution
Between the harsh penalties that come with a drug conviction and the aggressive approach prosecutors take to drug cases, people cannot afford to face drug charges with anything less than the strongest defense.
Strong Drug Charge Defense For Local College Students
It is all too easy for college students to find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time and to find themselves facing drug charges that could derail their futures. A drug conviction could prevent a person from being able to receive financial aid and continue with his or her higher education. Further, trying to build a career is difficult enough without the additional burden of a criminal record holding someone back. We defend students at all the local colleges and universities, including James Madison University (JMU), Bridgewater College, Eastern Mennonite University (EMU) and Blue Ridge Community College.
Our lawyers defend people against a wide range of drug charges such as intent to sell, possession or some other charge involving:
- Prescription drugs (OxyContin, Adderall, Percocet, etc.)
Were Your Fourth Amendment Rights Violated?
An effective defense against drug charges often begins with looking to see if the police respected your Fourth Amendment rights to be free from illegal searches and seizures. If those rights were violated, the evidence the police gathered may be inadmissible in court. A case without key evidence is likely to be dismissed or have the charges dropped.
