Being charged with a drug offence can be a very serious matter. Stephen Harper’s government has increased the penalties for drug offences so that now a person charged with a serious offence like trafficking will almost always go to jail if they are convicted after a trial or plead guilty regardless if it is their first offence and they are young.
It is critical that if you are charged with a drug offence you hire a lawyer who regularly defends these cases. To properly defend a drug case it is essential that your lawyer be extremely well educated in terms of the case law that bears on the issue of whether or not the search that discovered the drugs was legal. If it was not than your lawyer must be able to forcefully argue to the judge that the evidence should be excluded even if it overwhelmingly points to your guilt. Both Jeremy Jensen and Julian van der Walle have dedicated their professional lives to becoming and maintaining themselves as among the most knowledgeable and resourceful narcotic defense lawyers in British Columbia. Let their hard work and experience get you the best result possible in your Alberta drug case.
