All but the most minor drugs offences (such as personal possession of a small amount of cannabis) are treated seriously by the court as upon conviction you could receive a prison sentence.  Call us for immediate advice by telephone on 0161 477 1121.


The Importance of Legal Representation

The more serious offences (such as possession with intent to supply, supply, production, importation) may proceed to the Crown Court. You should not face prosecution for an offence of this type without legal representation.

Successfully defending an allegation concerning drugs involves:-
• Detailed expert analysis of the evidence e. g. surveillance or undercover police statements/recordings
• Detailed expert analysis of the unused prosecution material
• The use of specialist forensic scientists, e. g. concerning the potential valuation and yield of the drugs
• The use of experts on cell site analysis i.e. mobile phone traffic
• The use of a forensic accountant
• Site visits
• Preparing defence witness statements

Morton’s solicitors specialise in all aspects of drugs cases, including the new psychoactive substances offences which will make “legal highs” mostly illegal from the 26th May 2016.

Have You Been Invited To Attend A Police Station for Drugs Offences?

Some of the most important decisions made in relation to a case are made at the police station. If Morton’s solicitors are involved at an early stage of an investigation, we are often able to affect the outcome.

You are not obliged to say anything to the police and we advise all clients to maintain their right to silence until they speak with us.

A case can proceed solely on admissions made to the police without the need for witnesses to ever attend court.

You are entitled to have a solicitor present free of charge at any police interview. This is true for what may seem to be the most trivial offences, e.g. possessing a small amount of cannabis for personal use. You should never be interviewed without legal representation.

Morton’s Solicitors can advise you and provide expert representation. Call us now for immediate advice on 0161 477 1121.
