Aggressive representation against Virginia Beach drug charges
There are several different levels of drug crimes. These may include simple possession of lower level narcotics such as marijuana, possession of higher level narcotics (such as cocaine), and higher level offenses such as distribution or trafficking of illegal narcotics. Such matters can range from misdemeanors to high level felonies depending on one’s prior criminal history and the facts of the case. One thing that is common to all drug offenses is that they often hinge on “search & seizure” issues – if an officer violated your constitutional rights, and narcotics were found as a result, then it may be possible to have your case dismissed. Hiring a criminal defense lawyer, who understands Fourth and Fifth Amendment law is crucial to ensuring that your rights are protected.
Garrett Law Group, PLC is a Virginia Beach criminal law firm that regularly deals with narcotics charges. Once retained our office will acquire all relevant discovery, such as police reports and other evidence, to build a case that any evidence obtained should be excluded from Court. We will also challenge any methods used by law enforcement to measure and analyze the alleged narcotics and will work to exclude any evidence or statements obtained after you were arrested and booked into jail. We will investigate the scene of your arrest and will work to identify any witnesses which are important to your case. If you are charged with a drug offense, and you feel that your constitutional rights were violated, then contact us today.
Effective criminal defense lawyers for Virginia Beach cases involving marijuana or prescription drugs
Many people think that offenses related to marijuana or prescription drugs are “no big deal.” Marijuana continues to be illegal in our state and Virginia will aggressively prosecute people for marijuana possession, as well as the possession of non-prescribed drugs. These offenses can take the form of misdemeanors in General District Court or felonies in Circuit Court. Our Virginia Beach lawyers are able to assist you, regardless of the drug offense for which you are charged. .
As with higher level drugs, marijuana and prescription drug crimes often hinge on establishing a violation of one’s rights. We are experienced in this area. Also, in cases involving small quantities of certain narcotics it may be possible to gain a “Deferred Finding.” Such a finding results in the case being dismissed after a certain set of conditions have been met by the Defendant. Once a dismissal has been gained it becomes possible to seal a criminal record so that you may move on with your life. Our firm may be contacted 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
