An Attorney Can Help You Or Your Loved One When Substance Abuse Leads To Legal Issues

Addiction to illegal narcotics, alcohol or prescription medicines can destroy lives, and is often the direct cause of criminal behavior. Beyond possession of illegal drugs or DWI, substance abuse can lead to theft, property crimes and violent crimes such as assault and the alienation of family and friends. If you have been arrested for a crime related to substance abuse in Virginia, you need an experienced attorney.

Effective And Discreet Richmond Substance Abuse Lawyer

It is an unfortunate fact of life that substance abuse is an all too common part of the college experience. Binge drinking, underage drinking, abuse of alcohol, marijuana and harder drugs, such as cocaine or methamphetamine, can derail a life that was headed toward success. Drug-related charges are the most damaging, as the consequence can include a denial of federal student aid for even a small infraction. And with police crackdowns on underage possession of alcohol on local campuses, even college students who are caught in public with a glass of beer need effective representation. Whether you are a student, or the parent of a student, at the University of Richmond, Virginia Commonwealth University, Randolph-Macon or Virginia Union in need of a discreet and effective Richmond criminal defense lawyer who understands substance abuse issues, contact me, John A. March.
