Drug Crimes

State and federal law enforcement agencies devote significant resources to drug investigations, resulting in a steady stream of arrests in the government's war on drugs.

At Boyce, Leahy & Francescon, Lawyers, we take drug charges very seriously, from possession of controlled substances to alleged drug conspiracies. We understand that a conviction carries criminal and collateral consequences that may haunt our clients far into the future. Our founding attorney formerly served as a police officer and prosecutor, and we use those insights to provide a rigorous criminal defense.

Our Manassas lawyers practice in Prince William County and all surrounding jurisdictions of northern Virginia. Contact us today for a confidential consultation (free for criminal and personal injury cases only).

Marijuana Possession Lawyers In Woodbridge
Experienced Representation For All Drug Charges

Boyce, Leahy & Francescon, Lawyers, has experience with all drug crimes:

  • Drug possession (cocaine, heroin, Ecstasy, psilocybin mushrooms)
  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Distribution (drug transactions)
  • Illegal possession of prescription drugs
  • Prescription fraud
  • Manufacture (meth or PCP) or cultivation (marijuana)
  • Drug trafficking
  • Related charges (weapons, conspiracy, money laundering)

Except for a misdemeanor quantity of marijuana, possession of drugs is a felony. However, first-time offenders may qualify for a deferral program that results in dismissal of the charges upon completion of treatment and probation. Because of the ramifications, all drug crimes require a sophisticated defense.

We Challenge The Government's Case

Drug charges commonly result from undercover stings, surveillance operations, targeted traffic stops or tips from informants. As a former police officer, criminal defense attorney William Boyce knows how to question law enforcement's methods and the prosecution's evidence. Did police have reasonable suspicion to pull the car over? Did they exceed the limits of the search warrant? Is the informant a reliable witness? Can the prosecutor actually connect the drugs to our client? We have been successful in fighting drug charges on grounds of Fourth Amendment violations and other overreaching conduct of police.
