Drug Possession & Distribution
We Have More Than Six Decades Of Collective Experience
If you or a loved one has been charged with a drug crime in Virginia, it is wise to seek the counsel of an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. The sooner we get involved, the sooner we can begin developing a strong defense that limits your exposure to the devastating consequences that follow a criminal conviction.
The Newport News criminal defense lawyers at Heath, Overbey, Verser & Old, P.L.C. have experience defending clients charged in a wide range of drug-related offenses. We understand the severity of the consequences and the potential lifelong ramifications that you face.
Our Newport News criminal defense attorneys will aggressively defend you through negotiations with the prosecutor's office and presenting a defense before a judge or jury. Depending on the circumstances of your arrest, you could be facing jail time, large fines, the seizure of your property and/or community service.
Whether your charge involves drug distribution, drug possession, or carrying a firearm while in possession of drugs, you need a strong legal advocate who can stand up for your rights and fight to protect your future and freedom. Based on the existence of drug paraphernalia such as baggies or scales, the amount of drugs present, or the quantity of money found, your charges can escalate in severity.
We will carefully examine the police report and interview witnesses to get a clear picture of what actually happened. In some situations, the police did not follow proper procedures. In fact, you may be the victim of an illegal search and seizure. It is our job to uncover this type of information, which will ultimately work to your advantage in court. Contact our firm today to find out how else we can help.
