read more on drug offence defence
The law regarding dealing or supply of drugs surrounds the intention of passing a controlled substance to someone else. This means that even if you are sharing a cannabis joint with friends, you can still be liable.

The intention (whether for personal use only, which must be proven) and classification of the drugs supplied will influence whether the Magistrates’ or Crown Court will deal with your case.

Here, supplying drugs will be separated into actual supply, aggravated supply that has surrounding circumstances, offer to supply, involvement or concern in supply, and possession with intent to supply.

The overall sentence will also be determined by factors such as the quality and quantity of drugs, and whether dealing has been cited to be part of a larger operation.

In a larger operation, the court will then assess what role you have taken (leadership, significant or lesser involvement) to determine your sentence.

Investigations into any drugs related offences can often take a considerable amount of time and disrupt life at home and at work. We are here to guide and support you through the process. It is sensible to gain legal advice as soon as possible so that all the contributing factors leading up to a police investigation are considered and can be presented fairly in court

Common Offences we deal with are;

When to contact us
Clients do not have to wait until they have been arrested to contact us about any criminal charges – our team can advise from the initial stages of a police inquiry, or if it is likely a client may be arrested to face a criminal charge involving drug supply or drug possession charges.
