Drug trafficking Defence Lawyers in Ottawa

Drug Trafficking

Drug trafficking has a much broader meaning than most people realize. Trafficking is a broad term that can include the following activities:

  • Selling
  • Transporting
  • Administering
  • Transferring
  • Giving (even for free)
  • Sending
  • Delivery

These are complex cases to handle because the prosecution does not need to prove either of the following:

  • The substance in question was a drug (it is enough to present it as a drug)
  • You made a profit from the trafficking

The penalties for drug trafficking

Penalties in drug trafficking cases are serious. If you possess drugs for the purpose of trafficking (over a certain amount) you will face a mandatory prison term. A conviction can result in lengthy terms of imprisonment:

  • Up to life imprisonment for trafficking Schedule I or II substances (cocaine and heroin)
  • Up to 10 years in jail for trafficking for Schedule III or IV drugs (LSD, magic mushrooms, barbiturates)
  • Up to three years in jail for trafficking schedule V substances (Propylhexedrine and its salts)

If you are charged with drug trafficking, the severity of the penalties makes it important to contact an experienced lawyer as soon as possible.

Excellent and precise communications skills. Very clear on what my position was, what the legal actions available were, and what his strategy would be to address the situation. And precise execution. He assured me of my rights and position every step of the way. Made me feel totally comfortable with my rights, and let me continue with my life. Highly recommended.

Solomon is an excellent Lawyer, top in the field of firearms legislation. Would definitely invest time and money for his expertise. Thank you Solomon for first, taking my case and second, supporting a injured veteran.

The night I was charged with assault after a night out drinking was the worst night of my life. As a police officer, an off duty assault conviction would have jeopardized my career. I have worked closely with lawyers my entire nine year career. Either directly with Crown on a case or through cross-examination by defence counsel and after a few minutes of speaking with Solomon shortly after my arrest I knew his knowledge and ability to articulate legal principles were unmatched. He spent nearly an hour on the phone with me gathering facts and providing clear instructions. Throughout the process he kept me updated as to what was going on and I was extremely impressed with his handling of my case. Solomon did his homework on the accusers and witnesses and prepared an unbelievable defence which ultimately led to the charge being dropped on the first day of trial and allowing me to continue my career as a police officer. I’d recommend Solomon to anybody who is in need of expert legal defence.
