Defending Your Rights When You Have Been Charged With Possession Or Drug Use

A conviction for drug possession could cost you your job, negatively affect your future employment opportunities and result in serious criminal penalties. For every drug possession charge in Virginia, upon conviction you lose your driving privileges for six months. If you are facing drug possession charges, let an experienced criminal defense lawyer provide the vigorous representation you require.

We Put Our Experience To Work For You

In Fairfax, our attorneys at MacDowell Law Group, P.C., have handled thousands of criminal cases. Our founding attorney, Richard MacDowell, is a former prosecutor with over 35 years of legal experience.

As a former prosecutor, Richard MacDowell understands how prosecutors think and what they must prove to obtain convictions for drug possession. MacDowell Law Group, P.C., can provide a strong defense against any drug possession charge, including:

  • Possession of marijuana
  • Possession of cocaine
  • Possession of meth
  • Possession of any narcotic or controlled substance

Seasoned Trial Lawyers, Protecting Your Record

We understand the impact a criminal conviction can have on your future. As experienced criminal defense attorneys, we are knowledgeable about plea agreements and alternative dispositions available in drug possession cases that may allow you to avoid a criminal conviction and protect your record. Handling any drug case must involve a discussion on which outcomes are needed, so that you may file a petition for expungement (to seal police and court records) after your criminal case is over.

If the prosecution is unwilling to be reasonable — or if you simply want your day in court — you can be confident that we will be fully prepared to raise a strong defense on your behalf at trial. We offer a team of experienced trial attorneys who will put this experience to work for you.
