Top Drug Offence Lawyers Sydney

Our New South Wales Criminal Law team has a number of solicitors experienced in representing clients charged with possessing prohibited drugs, supplying drugs, deemed supply of drugs, drug trafficking and importation, and other drug-based offending. Because of the nature of these offences, there is often a great deal at stake for people. Their career, ability to hold a working with children check, access to their children, status in Australia, and freedom may be in jeopardy particularly as a jail sentence is often imposed where a person is found guilty of supplying, trafficking or importing a significant quantity of prohibited drugs. This page provides information about Armstrong Legal’s Sydney drug lawyers.

Get Urgent Advice from Sydney Drug Lawyers Now

It is critical that any person who is facing allegations or criminal charges ensures they have the best legal team on their side – from the date the allegation is first made. When a person is charged with drug offences, it’s important to have a Sydney drug lawyer assisting with the charging process, with decisions whether or not to participate in interviews or forensic procedures, with the making of a bail application and throughout the criminal matter. This is so regardless of whether the person plans on defending the matter, or pleading guilty.

Why Choose Armstrong Legal Sydney Drug Lawyers?

Our Sydney drug lawyers regularly provide legal advice in relation to the management and handling of allegations, police investigative techniques that clients should be aware of and the process of laying charging and going through court proceedings. We have Sydney drug lawyers on hand to provide advice in relation to dealing with police, bail applications, analysing a brief of evidence and whether or not the charges should be defended.

The police brief of evidence in drug matters is usually extensive and may include complicated expert evidence such as DNA, drug analysis certificates and evidence of a joint criminal enterprise if numerous people have been charged. Similarly, if the police have undertaken a controlled operation to investigate a clandestine lab or large-scale drug syndicate, the brief of evidence would most likely include surveillance not limited to telephone intercepts, CCTV footage and evidence from police informants.

While all our criminal lawyers will deal with drug matters from time to time, the below members of our team have particular experience in these types of matters. For one-off advice or representation, please feel free to call our lawyers on 02 9261 4555 or send us an email at [email protected] to arrange an appointment with one of our Sydney drug lawyers.
