If you have been arrested under drug possession charges, or you are under suspicion of supplying drugs, then you could be in one of several situations.
You may be waiting for the police to decide what action to take, or you may already have been interviewed and have been given a date to return to the police station. Perhaps you have been charged with an offence and are required to go to a Magistrates Court or may be awaiting a jury trial in the Crown Court.
The Misuse of Drugs Act 1971, which is the piece of legislation that criminalises the possession and supply of drugs, is complicated and offences differ greatly in seriousness and complexity - but possession of even a small quantity of cannabis may have potentially drastic consequences. This is why it is vital to seek legal advice from solicitors as soon as possible.
We have a strong background and years of experience in this field. The firm, and Nick Brett the partner who heads up the criminal litigation department, are recommended in leading directories such as Chambers and Partners and the Legal 500 and can help you to understand exactly where you stand, and the implications of the allegations against you for you in cases related to drug offences.
