Drug Possession, Distribution, and Prescription Drug Fraud in Fairfax, Virginia

Drug offenses carry severe penalties and are aggressively prosecuted throughout Virginia. Certain drug

offenses are punishable by up to 40 years in prison and others even carry the possibility of a life sentence. Narcotics cases can be complex, as they often involve constitutional search and seizure issues, scientific and technical issues, witness credibility issues, and other evidentiary issues.

Given the crushing penalties for drug convictions (and the potential defense issues that, if pursued, can work in your favor), anyone charged with a drug related crime should consult competent legal counsel. You must be absolutely certain that the criminal drug defense attorney you choose in Fairfax County understands how narcotics investigations are developed and proceed, and the mechanics of a drug prosecution. Former prosecutors have an inside knowledge of how drug charges are investigated and prosecuted. This insider experience can give former prosecutors an edge when defending clients against drug charges.
