Fairfax/Manassas Criminal & Personal Injury Blog

A resident of Fairfax, Virginia never wants to be facing a drug charge in either state or federal court or even see a son, daughter or other family member having to go through such an ordeal. All drug charges should be taken seriously, since they all carry with them the possibility of jail or prison, fines, license suspensions and strict terms of probations including mandatory counseling at a citizen's personal expense.

Additionally, federal narcotics charges are heard in the federal court, a system which operates very differently than the state-court system and can prove to be quite complex and unfamiliar. Moreover, strict and tough sentencing guidelines still play an important role in the federal system.

For these reasons, our law office recommends that anyone facing a drug charge in the Fairfax area use the services of an experienced criminal defense attorney. In this respect, our office has many times had the opportunity to lend its experience and criminal law expertise to the aid of ordinary citizens, many of whom were simply going through a dark period of life.

Our law office prides itself on being ethical, especially to dealing openly and honestly with clients, and working hard to prepare each one of our cases as if it were going to be tried in front of a jury in the near future. When it comes to investigating drug-related matters, we look especially hard at whether any of our client's constitutional rights were violated during law enforcement's investigation. A faulty search or arrest, for example, can be crucial to a person's defense and can make the difference between a lengthy prison sentence and an outright dismissal of charges.
