Drug Possession; Possession of Cocaine; Methamphetamine Possession

Drug Possession Defense Lawyer in Virginia Beach

Anywhere in Virginia, an arrest for possession of cocaine is extremely serious regardless of the amount involved, whether it be in crack, rock or powder form, or your criminal history. Cocaine is classified alongside heroin, methamphetamine, Ecstasy (MDMA), and prescription drugs, such as morphine as a Schedule I-V controlled substance; and simple possession is a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.


Simply stated, a drug possession charge puts your future on the line even if this is your first arrest and even if you consider the amount extremely small. You need a criminal defense lawyer on your side who will investigate, dig for problems with the prosecution’s case against you and explore all options for winning an outcome that gives you another chance.
