An Effective Drug Crime Defense Effort

In serious drug trafficking cases, the criminal defense attorneys of our law firm will aggressively defend your rights through a series of motions that are designed to suppress incriminating evidence. Our criminal lawyers will seek the suppression of all evidence obtained as a result of a search warrant issued without probable cause. Criminal defense lawyers of our firm will seek the suppression of any confessions that were taken in violation of your constitutional rights. Our criminal defense attorneys thoroughly prepare for the possibility of trial while continuing to negotiate with the prosecution to seek a favorable resolution to your case.

In first-time possession cases for small quantities of drugs, Virginia has a deferred finding provision. When properly argued by an experienced criminal lawyer, the provision allows for probation with dismissal of the charges after one year, if certain conditions are met by the defendant.

Whatever the charge, our criminal defense lawyers will examine every aspect of your case in order to build the most effective defense possible.
