Drug Offence in Calgary
Trafficking • Production • Possession
Our office is well-versed in handling drug-related cases. We have defended cases ranging from production of marijuana, cocaine and ecstasy, trafficking in all types of substances including heroine and prescription medications, importation charges, and in more complex cases, large scale conspiracies. We have often been retained on proceeds cases, including seizures of large sums of money that are alleged to have been obtained by drug trafficking. Many of these cases involve additional charges regarding possession of weapons. A detailed approach to defending these cases is vital to achieving any success for clients.
A conviction on even a relatively minor drug crime can carry lasting and serious implications. The potential for severe penalties in significant drug trafficking or importation charge is immediately evident. The reality is that drug charges demand the attention of experienced and effective legal counsel with the tools and resources to build a creative and sophisticated defence.
We have the experience and know-how to challenge and exclude the evidence collected against you by the state, including search warrants, wiretaps and surveillance. Such exclusion of evidence, collapses the state’s case against you. As respected leaders in trial advocacy for our clients, we can make constitutional challenges to your arrest and protect your rights at every stage.
Even if you are facing a relatively minor fine for possession of a controlled substance or a minimum jail sentence, it is important to realize that a drug conviction can have unexpected consequences. It can affect where you work, where you live, and where you are allowed to travel.
