Serious Drug Offence Lawyers Sydney

Our New South Wales Criminal Law team is highly experienced in representing clients who have been charged with serious drug related matters. Serious drug offences cover a wide range of conduct from single instances of supplying a prohibited drug to more serious offences such as Ongoing Supply of Prohibited Drugs to Supply or Importation of Large Commercial Quantity of Prohibited Drug.

Any serious drug related matter has the potential of the court sentencing you to a term of imprisonment, with some carrying maximum penalties as severe as life imprisonment. There may also be associated charges relating to money laundering, possessing precursors and/or associated civil applications for freezing orders or asset forfeiture. Such matters have the potential to seriously impact the life of the person charged, as well as those around them. This is why it is imperative that any person under investigation or charged with such an offence receives timely and comprehensive advice from a lawyer experienced in serious drug supply matters.

Get Help Making Applications for Bail

It is not uncommon for a person charged with serious drug offences to be refused bail by the police or the court. Our lawyers are experienced in making applications for bail and regularly assist clients and their families in preparing and obtaining relevant evidence and documentation for bail applications.

Get Urgent Legal Advice for Drug Charges

It is important that anyone who is under investigation or charged with an serious drug offence obtains legal advice from our Sydney drug lawyers as soon as possible. On many occasions our solicitors have taken initial conferences with clients who are in custody and unsure as to whether they need to comply with forensic procedures or how to exercise their right to silence. We have also had clients who indicate they intend on pleading guilty to a charge, only to be advised that they might have a defensible case or that there is scope to negotiate the seriousness of the charge or to have the alleged facts amended.

Where a person has been charged or is yet to be charged, it’s important to have a solicitor assisting with decisions about whether or not to participate in a police interview or consent to forensic procedures, whether to apply for bail (if applicable) and throughout the criminal matter, regardless of whether the person plans on defending the matter or pleading guilty. That’s where our serious drug offences lawyers can help.

Drug Lawyers Sydney Best Suited To Your Matter

While all our criminal lawyers appear in drug related matters, the seriousness of the allegation (for example if the offence is to be finalised in the Local Court or the District Court, and whether there is a risk of full-time custody at sentence) will determine which solicitor best suits your matter. For advice or representation, please feel free to call our lawyers on 1300 038 223 or send us an email to arrange an appointment with one of our Sydney lawyers who specialise in assault offences.
