Bowen Ten Cardani in Richmond and Ashland can provide the guidance and advocacy you need when you are under suspicion of a drug offense in Virginia. If an investigation is underway but you have not been charged, this does not mean you don’t need a lawyer yet. Legal representation before an arrest occurs can offer the greatest opportunities of a favorable outcome. Our lawyers can advise you in cases involving these and other critical issues:
Marijuana: The movement to legalize small amounts of marijuana has come to pass in some states but not yet in Virginia. Marijuana offenses, including possession and distribution, can result in jail time and the suspension of your driver’s license.
Felony possession: The mere possession of harder drugs, like cocaine and heroin, is a felony that can affect the rest of your life. Oftentimes offenses like this involve legal issues that must be carefully considered. Beyond the legal considerations, there are often mental health or addiction issues that should be addressed by experienced counsel.
Felony distribution: Distribution offenses are the most serious in the realm of drug offenses and the threat of jail and penitentiary time is substantial. Skilled counsel is a must if you are facing charges of this nature.
