Designing A Strong Defense For Prescription Drug Charges

Law enforcement agents and prosecutors take an aggressive approach when handling prescription drug crimes. They will pursue the fullest extent of the law to stem the surge in opioid abuse and illegal use of other prescription drugs.

If you find yourself on the wrong side of the law in a prescription drug case, do not expect the prosecutor to offer to dismiss the charges without a fight. At Mark B, Arthur, PC, I bring over a decade of criminal defense experience to bear when I take your case. Throughout Lynchburg and the neighboring area, I have built a reputation for my creative legal strategies and my tireless commitment to my clients.

Tailoring My Strategy According To Your Circumstances

Prescription drug offenses can be challenging to handle because painkiller addiction is often at the center of this issue. When you hire me, I will study the circumstances surrounding your arrest and tailor my approach according to your unique situation.

I use this insight to defend individuals facing a range of complex charges that include:

  • Prescription fraud, including doctor shopping and prescription forgery
  • Illegally possessing prescription drugs
  • Distributing prescription drugs
  • Manufacturing, possessing and selling counterfeit drugs

The state of Virginia has established drug courts to help rehabilitate individuals charged with nonviolent drug crimes. If you qualify for this program, I will petition the court for your enrollment. Successfully completing this program may allow you to have your charges dismissed or reduced.

If you are not eligible for this program, you can depend on me to develop a strong defense, using compelling arguments and expert testimony when necessary. I know that both misdemeanor and felony drug charges can severely affect your future, so I will do everything in my power to secure a favorable result.
