Federal Drug Trafficking Lawyer

Norfolk and Newport News Federal Drug Trafficking Lawyer, Chad Dorsk

The Challenge Of Defending Against Federal Charges

Federal drug convictions bring harsher penalties than state drug cases, and the federal government has extensive resources — in both people and money — to draw on, which helps account for the very high conviction rate. To fight back and win against these odds requires extensive experience and legal knowledge.

Our strengths in defending against federal drug crimes are our many years of experience, our knowledge of federal drug laws, and our extensive relationships developed over the years with the United States Attorney's Office, Clerks, and Judges.

Dorsk Law Office, PLC defends against all federal drug offenses, including:

  • Drug trafficking: including manufacture, distribution or possession with the intent to distribute, deliver or sell

  • Manufacturing: operating places for the purpose of manufacturing or distributing illegal drugs

  • Smuggling: illegal importation of controlled substances

  • “Continuing criminal enterprise” crimes: working in drug trafficking or manufacture with five or more people

  • Conspiracy: working with others to manufacture, distribute or import

  • Protected locations: possessing or trafficking in a school or playground zone

  • Employing underage persons in drug trafficking

  • Possession of Prescription Drugs without a valid prescription

  • Money laundering of the proceeds of drug activities


Illegal drugs or controlled substances can be anything from marijuana to opiates, amphetamines, hallucinogens, benzodiazepines or other illegal prescription drugs.

The Federal Criminal Practice at Dorsk Law Office, PLC, is steeped in Federal Law and Procedure with a laser focus on federal criminal cases at either courthouse in Newport News and Norfolk, Virginia.
