The Government Takes Drug Charges Seriously. You Should, Too.
If you or a loved one has been arrested on an accusation of a drug crime anywhere in Southside Virginia, there is at least one thing you likely know for certain: The government is not likely to take your case lightly.
Whether the charges involve simple possession or manufacturing and trafficking, prosecutors pursue convictions for drug crimes aggressively in the commonwealth and often like to make “examples” out of individual cases. When criminal charges related to controlled substances or marijuana are on the table, you can’t afford not to have an experienced lawyer protecting your rights.
I am attorney R. Clinton Clary, Jr., and for more than 40 years, I have focused my practice in the area of Virginia criminal defense. As a Southside Virginia native, I am passionate about helping people throughout the region stand up to the charges they face.
Being charged with a drug crime can seem like the end of the world, but it doesn’t have to be. Call 434-848-3632 for a free consultation to discuss your options with me.
My Goal: Helping You Minimize The Penalties You Face
Whether you are a first-time offender who was simply at the wrong place at the wrong time, or you have had previous run-ins with the law, I will build the strongest possible defense given your circumstances. I represent defendants arrested on suspicion of illegal possession, distribution, manufacturing and trafficking of all controlled substances. These include:
- Prescription drugs
Know The Consequences You Face
Many people only think about the jail time and fines that a conviction carries. But some of the most devastating effects come post-conviction. A criminal record can impact your ability to buy a home, get a job, join the military, possess a firearm — even vote.
Because there is so much at stake, I work aggressively to find every possible way to help my clients. Whether negotiating with prosecutors for an advantageous plea deal, or taking a case to trial and forcing the prosecution to show its hand, I make sure my clients understand their rights and our strategy. I show them that it is possible to stand up to the government.
