HOW VIRGINIA LAW APPLIES TO YOU!

Having handled thousands of criminal cases in all the courts of Northern Virginia, we understand how critical your job and/or your security clearance are to your livelihood and your family. If you are convicted of any Drug Crimes, you are facing not only significant jail time, a substantial fine, and the loss of your driver’s license for 6 months; but you will also receive a permanent criminal record with the FBI and Homeland Security and you could potentially lose your job, your security clearance, future employment opportunities, and your future!

Whether it is simple Drug Possession or Drug Distribution, illegal drugs are a growing problem in Virginia! As to Drug Possession of Marijuana, Cocaine, Ecstasy, PCP, Heroin or other drugs not prescribed to you, in order for the Commonwealth to prove that you were in “possession” of the illegal drug or controlled substance, they must prove that you knowingly and intentionally possessed the illegal substance. To knowingly and intentionally possess a controlled substance means that a person is aware of the presence and nature of the illegal drug or substance and has actual physical possession or “constructive” possession of the illegal substance. Actual physical possession means that the substance is found on the person. “Constructive” possession means that the person charged has “dominion” or “control” over the illegal substance.

For the Commonwealth of Virginia to prove Distribution related charges, the Commonwealth must prove that you either, Manufactured, Distributed, or “Possessed with the Intent to Distribute” a controlled substance/drug such as Marijuana, Cocaine, Ecstasy, PCP, Heroin or other drugs not prescribed to you. “Possession with the Intent to Distribute” can be proven by the weight of the substance, with the presence of such items as scales, baggies, cutting, devices, large amounts of cash, etc.

In addition to the significant discovery, due diligence and legal work we do to get your Drug Crime charge dismissed, your participation in appropriate programs and classes prior to court can significantly increase your odds of an even more successful outcome … such as:

  • Substance Abuse Treatment
  • Substance Abuse Evaluation
  • Drug Screening/Testing
  • Volunteer Community Service
  • Alternative to Jail Programs
  • Letters of Recommendation
  • Alternative to Jail Programs
