Drug Offences

There are many different ways you can end up being charged with a drug offence.

Sometimes police conduct complex investigations of targeted individuals or organizations. In many cases, however, police might be dealing with you for something completely unrelated, when by coincidence or even an unlawful search, they find you in possession of a controlled substance.

Traffic stops might lead to an unlawful search, or drugs are found at a house party and everyone in the home could be charged. It doesn’t matter how you came to be charged with a drug offence – we are committed to protecting you.

In many drug investigations, police target you based on unreliable or false information provided by confidential informants. Informants are often motivated by their own self-interest, such as payment from police or trying to avoid prosecution for their own misdeeds. In some cases police identify suspects based on preconceived notions and unconscious or conscious bias.

Rather than following the evidence and drawing a conclusion based on what it supports, investigators often start with an objective based on a faulty assumption, then look for evidence to support it.

London Drug Lawyers, Defending Your Rights

Defending you against drug charges often involves arguing complex applications for the exclusion of evidence, known as “Charter applications”.

In Canada, our Charter of Rights and Freedoms (“Charter”) guarantees you protection against arbitrary detention, unreasonable searches of you or your property, and unreasonable seizure of your property.

The Charter also guarantees you the right to contact a lawyer of your choice, and to be told you have this right immediately upon your arrest or detention.

London Drug Lawyers: Protecting Your Freedom

When drugs are found after police execute a warrant on your residence or search your vehicle, the police will often charge everyone in the residence or vehicle.

Even if there is no evidence connecting you or someone with you to drugs found in a location, police will charge you and the people with you. This is often done to pressure the true target of an investigation to plead guilty by charging innocent people near them.

If police take short-cuts in their investigation, or are not honest in their pursuit of warrants to search your home, vehicle, or even your person, we challenge this illegal conduct. This work is time consuming and complex, but our London drug lawyers are committed to protecting your freedom, and protecting you from the unlawful actions of government authorities no matter how you came.

About Snow Lawyers Professional Corporation

We are trial lawyers. We work late nights and we bring complicated applications to challenge prosecutions.

When we are in trial, it consumes us—we are single-minded in our pursuit of success and protecting you against the immense power of the government.

We protect your privacy, your family, your freedom, and your livelihood. We protect you from prosecutions that can be driven by political objectives, not the pursuit of justice.

We protect you from dishonest police and civilian witnesses, and illegal police conduct.

How much will my case cost?

The cost of each case depends on the nature and complexity of the charges you are facing. The cost of your defence will also depend on if you have a trial or resolve the case in another manner, and the experience level of your lawyer.

Do you charge by the hour or offer flat rate fees?

At Snow Lawyers we charge a flat fee for each stage of your proceedings. This offers a high degree of certainty when you are planning to pay for your defence, and ensures there are no surprises. We also feel it is important you don’t worry your lawyer is going to charge you for every second when you need to communicate important information about your case.

Do you offer payment plans?

We understand that being charged with a criminal offence is an unexpected and unpleasant surprise. If you are not able to pay for your defence all at once, we will work with you to structure a payment plan that allows you to make payments over time.
