In the Commonwealth of Virginia a drug related conviction can result in significant fines and penalties, including participation in a drug rehabilitation program and serious time in jail or prison. While the criminal punishments are likely to be harsh, a drug conviction can have life altering consequences that extend far beyond the criminal justice system.
Even a misdemeanor drug offense can destroy your personal reputation and standing within your community. A drug conviction can make it very difficult to find a job or housing and can even prevent you from receiving federal financial aid and student loans. With so much at risk, you cannot afford to confront your Virginia drug charges on your own: you need the help of an experienced lawyer who will properly protect and defend your legal rights at every step of the legal process.
