DRUG TRAFFICKING

Toronto Drug Trafficking Lawyers

Respected and Successful Marijuana Trafficking Lawyers Serving Etobicoke

When facing serious drug trafficking charges for narcotics such as marijuana, cocaine or illegal prescription drugs, you need a criminal defence lawyer who is current on the issues, meticulous at preparing your case and experienced in the trial system. The lawyer you hire may make a difference in the outcome of your case, and can have an impact on your life for years, and even decades, to come.

At the law firm of Neuberger & Partners LLP in Toronto, Ontario, our counsellors are respected trial lawyers with aproven record spanning decades.* We have defended a significant number of drug trafficking cases, and we strive for favourable outcomes for our clients.

Possession and Trafficking Defence

Simply being in possession of a substantial quantity of illegal drugs can lead to charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking. The already high penalties for possession rise substantially with a trafficking charge attached, often at the discretion of the court.

At Neuberger & Partners LLP, we seek to protect our clients’ rights and pursue all avenues for a favourable outcome in drug crimes cases. Our Toronto drug trafficking lawyers handle a wide range of drug crimes and trafficking cases for both “soft” and “hard” drugs, including:

If you have been accused of being involved with transporting illegal narcotics, importing drugs or engaging in an illegal transaction involving drugs, or being in possession of drugs for the intent of trafficking, then you need a strong defence team with a proven record of success.

We pride ourselves on building custom and creative legal solutions for our clients. We thoroughly prepare your case for trial, instruct and inform you of your options, challenge the prosecution’s evidence, and explore all avenues for dismissing or resolving your case. This can involve everything up to and including challenging the constitutionality of legislation.
