Defending Your Future Against Any Drug Charge

If you have been charged with a misdemeanor or felony drug charge, you face severe penalties that can affect your life for many years to come.

An experienced attorney can help.

The criminal defense lawyers at Lawrence, Smith and Gardner have been representing clients in the state and federal criminal courts of Virginia for over 30 years. We use our extensive drug law experience to provide aggressive and effective criminal defense to clients in Fairfax County and throughout Northern Virginia.

For effective defense against drug possession, drug trafficking or other drug-related offenses, call 703-539-5825 or fill out the contact form. We would be happy to discuss your drug charges in a free telephone consultation.

In Virginia, whether your drug charge is a misdemeanor or felony — and the penalties you face if convicted — depends on:

  • The drug involved
  • The amount of the drug found in your possession
  • The circumstances of your arrest and
  • Other factors

We handle drug cases involving cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, narcotics and other controlled substances.

How We Can Help You

Our attorneys defend clients against a wide variety of drug charges such as:

  • Drug possession
  • Drug trafficking
  • Fraudulent prescriptions
  • Possession of cocaine
  • Possession with intent to distribute

At all stages of your case — from the time of your arrest to the conclusion of your trial or appeal — you are entitled to legal counsel. An attorney’s advice about what to say and how to behave in the early, critical phases of your case may help you avoid costly mistakes. Your future may depend on the careful handling of your case following any drug charge.

We have the resources and skill to prepare a strong case on your behalf. Our experienced criminal defense attorneys will examine the search and arrest procedures and evidence the state will use against you. Moreover, in preparation for hearings and trial, we will suggest appropriate steps that you can take in order to enhance your chances for a satisfactory outcome.

We may help get drug charges reduced or be able to work out sentencing options such as community service or a suspended or reduced sentence for a drug violation. In some cases, after a sentence of community service, or a dismissal, clients are able to get their records expunged — sealed from public access.
