The Commonwealth of Virginia takes drug offenses very seriously. Individuals arrested for a crime involving the possession or use of drugs can face severe penalties. Certain drug crimes carry mandatory sentencing, making the hiring of a good defense attorney even more crucial.
Since 1979, my Richmond-based law firm, David Whaley LLC, has defended individuals throughout Virginia against all types of drug charges in state and federal court, such as:
I also defend clients against the related charges that often come with drug offenses, including conspiracy and murder.
I have dedicated my 32-year legal career to protecting the rights of the accused. Even if you committed the act or acts with which you are being charged, you have rights. This is a point that is sometimes overlooked during the questioning, arrest and booking process. When you contact my office and explain your situation, I listen carefully to the details of your case and then analyze every aspect to ensure your rights were not violated. If they were, it may be possible to have the charges against you reduced or dismissed.
Every individual has the right to a strong defense. At the Richmond, Virginia criminal defense law firm of David Whaley LLC, every client is treated with the same level of respect and attention, regardless of the size of your case.
