Excellent Defense Against Drug Charges

Despite recent reforms at the federal level, drug crime sentences remain harsh in Virginia. A conviction for even a small amount of a controlled substance can result in a significant prison sentence and a felony on your record.

After an arrest on drug charges, your best chances to avoid heavy penalties is to turn to Robert F. Rider, PLC, one of the Roanoke area's top criminal defense law firms. We will act quickly to preserve your civil rights and ensure that you get fair treatment.

Forceful Defense Against State And Federal Charges

Drug charges can be made at the state or federal level. Federal drug charges tend to be for larger cases, but state charges are nothing to ignore. Either way, a conviction could result in a prison term and fines. You could also lose some of your rights, including your right to vote and your right to own a gun.

Attorney Robert Rider has practiced criminal defense law since 1979. He aggressively defends people charged with a drug crime. In many cases, it is possible to get charges dropped due to unlawful police conduct like illegal search and seizure.
