Virginia Drug Crime Attorney

Thorough defense to charges of use, possession and sale of illicit drugs

Virginia Beach, composed as it is of a metropolitan center, busy marina and resort community, is susceptible to drug trafficking, use and abuse. Local law enforcement agencies are necessarily vigilant. If you are arrested here on suspicion of a drug crime, you can expect to face vigorous prosecution to the extent the law allows. Messman Law, PLC provides an equally vigorous defense, safeguarding your Constitutional rights as we work hard to minimize the damage done by your arrest.

Personalized attention from the minute you call

Messman Law, PLC is determined to provide close, personal counsel for all clients. From the earliest possible moment, I respond to your call as quickly as physically possible. I will accompany you at every police interview and court appearance, giving sound guidance and firm support. I make myself easily accessible throughout your legal process, so you can rest assured that your Virginia Beach criminal attorney is making your case a high priority.

Prepared for trial with proactive strategies

Most successful drug crime defenses come on procedural grounds; challenging law enforcement regarding stop and frisk, traffic stop, search and seizure or chain of custody. To prevail in this manner, you need an aggressive attorney who takes a proactive approach and does not simply react to whatever the prosecution presents. Our lawyer in Hampton Roads strongly asserts your Constitutional rights to due process and freedom from unlawful search and seizure. I am not shy or intimidated about challenging law enforcement on their procedures for determining probable cause or gathering, processing and preserving evidence.

Securing your best negotiated solution

Most drug charge cases do not go to trial; rather, they are settled through a sentence negotiation process, or plea bargain. Our Virginia Beach criminal lawyer carefully weighs the prosecution's case to give you the most reliable advice regarding your chances of prevailing at trial versus accepting a reduced sentence on a lesser charged offense. I will carefully explain your legal options so you can make a fully informed choice.
