Skilled Drug Crime Attorney Stands By You Every Step of the Way

Virginia lawyer defends the accused

If you have been arrested on drug charges of any kind, you need an experienced, skilled Lynchburg drug crime attorney to represent you. The laws in Virginia are very strict. Even what seems like a small infraction can have major consequences. It is important to hire a lawyer as soon as possible to ensure you have someone in your corner to protect your rights.

Law enforcement agents are not your friends, but they present themselves as such. A confession makes life much easier for prosecutors and police officers. They will do whatever they can to get you to confess to the drug charge for which they arrested you. If you are arrested, be polite, give officers your name and address when asked and immediately state your desire to have a lawyer present before being questioned.

The police will try different tactics, including acting friendly towards you, threatening and intimidating you, and even lying. The best thing you can do for yourself is to ask for a lawyer and then wait until one arrives. Anything you say at any time after your arrest can be used against you, and prosecutors use whatever information they have to get a conviction.
