Experience Navigating Virginia’s Drug Crime Laws
Virginia’s drug laws are known for being very severe. Even simple possession of less than 1/2 an ounce of marijuana can lead to 30 days in jail and a fine of $500. The state is considering the decriminalization of marijuana, but previous bills on the matter have failed. Until legislation catches up, a drug conviction can lead to serious jail time.
At the Pack Law Group, we fight on your behalf, helping you navigate Virginia’s strict drug crime laws. Our team is here 24 hours a day, seven days a week to answer your questions and phone calls. Drug crimes are serious offenses that can have lifelong ramifications, including the possibility of losing your job.
Experienced Criminal Defense For All Drug Cases
We’re not afraid to take on law enforcement or government officials who are trying to convict our clients of drug crimes. Our attorneys have decades of experience helping clients fight back against charges such as:
- Prescription drugs
Our team has the skills and experience necessary to represent you, whether you’ve been charged with the sale, possession or trafficking of drugs.
We can also help with getting your records expunged, removing the drug charge from your permanent record. Drug charges have a lasting impact on your life, and 80% of employers will conduct a background check on you to see if you have any drug charges or any type of criminal record.
You Have The Right To Retain Legal Counsel
The stakes are too high to deal with the police without an attorney. The police will work to have you incriminate yourself. They may try to convince you that they’ll go easier on you if you give up evidence.
We can help you. Any evidence against you needs to be sufficient and legal, and we will fight on your behalf to prove that you’re innocent of the charges levied against you. We have experience with:
- Plea bargains
- Reduced sentences
We will explore every potential legal avenue toward restoring your freedom and reputation.
However, if you talk to the police and incriminate yourself, it is much harder to defend your case. Be polite, but consider politely declining the questions of law enforcement without an attorney present. It is your right, under the constitution, to seek legal advice when being charged with a crime. Never waive this right and try to handle your case on your own.
Are You The Subject Of A Criminal Investigation?
If so, we can help. We know the tactics that the government will try and use against you. These tactics need the proper legal action and attention to be responded to properly. Our team will work aggressively to build your defense during the investigation phase. We’ll be present during questioning, and we’ll compile our own evidence and list of witnesses to strengthen your defense.
