Drugs Offences

Have you been accused of possession with intent to supply drugs? Or even just simple possession? Been arrested after your car or property was searched for drugs and held in a police station for questioning?

Whether you find yourself under criminal investigation or are worried about the legal representation being offered to a friend or family member, our expert drug offences solicitors can provide clear advice, a robust defence and expert legal representation when you need it most.

We deal with drugs cases every day so we know how to analyse the evidence and we know the sentencing guidelines inside out. We are effectively senior consultants for drugs cases at all levels.

We are called by clients of all ages and backgrounds, including relatives of clients. We deal with clients caught up in drug use or supply at all levels such as street dealing, supply, importation, production right through to commercial operations at the regional, national or international level. We deal with Encrochat level cases. We understand county lines and modern slavery defences and issues. As a major award-winning respected firm of 45 years working in the busy larger inner cities, we have substantially more experience than many of our competitor firms. 

We can analyse the evidence quickly and give you a strong opinion on whether we can get your case lowered to possession-only charges rather than possession with intent to supply

Accusations of drug dealing or conspiracy to supply drugs are very serious and carry onerous punishments. That is why it is critical that you contact us, as soon as possible, to ensure you have quality legal representation right at the outset. Whatever your situation, instructing our specialist defence solicitors quickly is vital considering the very short time period before legal representation is required at Court.

For a free initial consultation on your legal position and the available options, contact our local offices in London, Birmingham or Manchester.

Our expert criminal law solicitors are ready to help defend you and protect your rights and interests, when you need them most.

Are you looking for specialised drugs offences solicitors?

Drugs offences are taken very seriously by the police and courts and having a conviction even for simple possession can affect your travel and future job prospects. In some cases you can also be looking at a substantial prison sentence. If the evidence is strong we will tell you face to face and in writing so that you can secure what is known as early discount credit for an early guilty plea. Sometimes acting on early advice is what keeps you out of prison. We get suspended prison sentences in real drugs cases giving you a second chance with your life and family. 

For these reasons, you need committed and experienced drug offences solicitors on your side to advise and represent you, acting with all the necessary skill, speed and expertise to assist you with a robust defence. You need a top solicitor who does this work daily and knows how to work with clients who are unfortunate enough to get caught up in this world.
