Defence for possession, supply, importation and county lines offences

If you or a loved one has been accused of drug related offences, it’s vital you find a solicitor with extensive knowledge and experience. The no-tolerance approach that the British justice system takes with these charges means it’s imperative to find reliable representation.

Criminal Defence Lawyers You Can Trust

According to UK government statistics, there were approximately 58,977 drug-related arrests this year. Although that number is approximately 1/6th of the number from previous years, it’s still a large amount. All of those people will require criminal defence lawyers.

We understand the responsibility that accompanies drug offence representation. As a result, we offer extensive expertise when guiding and supporting our clients through their cases.

Between 2 and 7 years is the maximum sentence for drug possession. The length given will depend on class. With this in mind, it’s paramount that the legal representative you choose has an outstanding case history. Not only this, but it’s vital that your solicitor has a proven criminal defence strategy to ensure your outcome is the best it can be.

Drug Importation Offences & What Your Solicitor Can Do

The importation or exportation of any controlled substance is prohibited under UK and international law. As a result of this, a serious conviction is accompanied by larger prison sentences.

At Blackfriars Law we understand the parameters and circumstantial situations that can apply to drug importation charges. Therefore, our team of legal experts work with our clients to ensure a calculated legal defence for the best possible outcome.
