If you or your child has been charged with drug possession or distribution in Virginia, it is essential that you understand your legal rights and available defense options. Whether your case concerns a small amount of marijuana or a significant amount of another drug, the consequences can include fines, probation, jail time, loss of your driver’s license and a negative impact on your education and career opportunities. (All drug possession charges have negative impact on immigration status and may result in deportation).
If your goal is to avoid these adverse consequences, having a skilled criminal defense lawyer is crucial.
A History of Successful Drug Defense
At Nichols & Green PLLC, we defend hundreds of criminal cases each year. Attorney Garrett Green has been practicing law in northern Virginia since 1989 and maintains excellent working relationships with Virginia’s judges, prosecutors and police officers. As a result of his almost daily exposure to the judges and prosecutors of Fairfax County, Garrett is extremely knowledgeable about how to handle drug cases, including charges of:
- Misdemeanor or felony possession of marijuana, cocaine, heroin, ecstasy or prescription drugs such as Vicodin and OxyContin
- Possession with intent to distribute (PWID), which may be charged if the state can prove an intent to sell or distribute the drugs
- Prescription drug fraud, a crime that is policed heavily in northern Virginia
- Drug trafficking, which can result in serious federal and state prosecution.
