West Virginia has strict laws when it comes to drugs. If you are facing drug charges, you need to take time to understand the laws that are being used as the basis for your charges. We know that this might seem like a difficult task, but we are here to help you along the way.
Many drug charges in West Virginia are felony charges. This means that if you are convicted, you will be branded a felon and will have to deal with the impacts that come with that label. This can include employment and housing challenges, as well as impacts to your right to vote and possess a firearm.
Your best option when you have drug charges staring you down is to work on your defense. Don't rely on a one-size-fits-all defense strategy. Instead, work on finding a personalized defense that takes the circumstances of your case into account. You have to think about what strategy you are comfortable with before you can proceed with building up a defense.
We can evaluate your case and provide insight about your options. Whether you are seeking a plea deal, a drug diversion program or a reduction in the charges, we will work to find the options that are in your best interests.
There are many different types of drug charges that range from possession through trafficking. The severity of the charge must be considered when you are coming up with a defense strategy. The defense that works for a simple possession charge likely won't work for a more complex one like drug trafficking.
