  • Drug Charges
    Even a simple possession charge can carry serious consequences. If you have been charged with drug manufacture, distribution, possession with intent to distribute, cultivation, possession of drug paraphernalia, sale, or trafficking, the stakes can be even higher.

    • What is simple possession? It’s a misdemeanor for somebody to take, possess, or use an illegal drug. The penalty ranges from a small fine to a couple years in prison. Possession is a misdemeanor or felony, depending on the drug’s chemical composition and type of crime involved. In West Virginia, the penalty is a jail time of not less than 90 days nor more than six months, a fine up to $1,000, or both of them.
  • Fraud
    White collar crimes, including fraud, are often prosecuted at the federal level. There are many different forms of fraud – including healthcare fraud, bank fraud, credit card fraud, wire fraud, tax fraud, mortgage fraud, and more. Call us if you have been accused of fraud.
  • Embezzlement
    Embezzlement is considered a white collar crime. These crimes are usually financially motivated, do not involve the use of force or violence, and are committed by “white collar” professionals as opposed to “blue collar” workers or laborers, hence the name.
  • Tax Fraud / Tax Evasion
    Tax fraud and / or tax evasion charges can be prosecuted in federal court. If you have been accused of tax fraud or tax evasion in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, or Ohio and you face federal charges, contact Jividen Law Offices, PLLC right away.
  • Murder
    If you or someone close to you has been charged with murder, do not hesitate to retain the services of a skilled and knowledgeable West Virginia lawyer from our team as quickly as possible. The consequences of a conviction could involve a lifetime prison sentence or even capital punishment.
