TWC Lawyers: Reputable, Reliable Drug Crime Lawyers

Drug charges are serious and depending on the exact charge could lead to imprisonment for up to 25 years. Having a drug crime lawyer by your side during a police investigation or questioning is critical. In fact, TWC Lawyers suggest that you stick to the number one rule which is don’t speak to anybody but us relating to your case.

Drug Crimes Generally

There are a lot of different kinds of drug crimes, with many possible outcomes.

The main differences between the different drug charges that criminal lawyers handle is usually:

  • The type of drug;
  • The purity/ quantity of the drug; and
  • What the police say you’ve done with the drug.

There are a wide range of prohibited drugs that can be the subject of an alleged crime. That might include:

  • LSD
  • Ecstasy or similar “party” drugs
  • Cannabis/marijuana
  • Steroids if used illegally
  • LSD
  • Amphetamines like speed and methamphetamines like ice
  • Heroin
  • Cocaine

Whatever the type of drug though, drug crimes are serious in Queensland with substantial maximum penalties.
Below are a few common charges that criminal lawyers like TWC deal with regularly.

Benefits of Hiring a Drug Lawyer In Brisbane and the Gold Coast

Drug charges include possession, supply and trafficking. Whether the police have called you in for a friendly chat or you’re actively being investigated or have officially been charged, it helps to have a drug defence lawyer in your corner. Having the knowledge and experience of a lawyer can help change the outcome of a case.

  • The law is extremely complex and dynamic. It is continuously updated, and you can save yourself the stress, time and disruption to your professional and private life by hiring a qualified drug crime lawyer. Our lawyers study for several years to thoroughly understand the law of the land and with their training can help you deal with a drug charge.
  • There is a misconception about lawyers being too expensive to hire. The problem with that is you place yourself at risk if you go through a case unrepresented. Without a professional lawyer by your side, you could be falsely charged, found guilty when innocent, sentenced to prison when you shouldn’t, have your driver’s license revoked, get your employment terminated and forced to disclose your criminal record for future employment opportunities.
  • Going into a trial unrepresented is ill-advised, especially because ordinary citizens don’t know what relevant questions to ask a witness or the rules pertaining to the presentation of evidence. A qualified lawyer possesses the skills to introduce evidence and cross-examines witnesses in a way that is strategic and benefits you in the outcome of the case.

Hands down No.1 law firm in Brisbane! Would highly recommend TWC Criminal Lawyers to anybody facing a criminal charge. I would particularly like to acknowledge Tam Elabbasi and Martin Longhurst for their incredible efforts in helping me throughout the last 3 years. They are not only the most elite in their field of criminal law but are down-to-earth, kind and non-judgemental human beings. For a couple of very intellectually superior men they actually have a great sense of humour too... ha go figure! In a time of crisis, you need a team that is competent, professional and reliable but having additional moral support and optimism makes a massive difference too. I was initially made to serve time in prison but was given an early release and a no conviction recorded and subsequently the opportunity to continue my studies in Medicine. In all my court appearances and encounters with law enforcement, they clearly explained the implications and possible outcomes for the case I had. They are very knowledgeable, personable as well as professional, and easy to communicate with even on a colloquial level. I always trust their advice and it was clear and conclusive. I felt reassured and well looked after with their services. I felt their commitment to assisting me in my legal battles extended beyond just a paycheck but that they truly like to see people do better with their lives and seek justice. I am so grateful and blessed that I decided on this Law firm to act on my behalf. I don't know if I would be here today able to pursue my dream career if it wasn't for the hard work of this team. I am very happy with the outcome that they fought hard for and would happily recommend this practice to anyone. Legends! Thank you

Wesley provided clear and concise advice, quick responses and a wealth of knowledge and really helped my partner and I understand everything we needed to know with regards to starting a business. If you need a business solicitor or a lawyer in general, then definately reach out to Wesley.. He really took the stress out of the legal processes involved in purchasing a business and is a very genuine person who wants to help. Thanks Wes!

I couldn’t be happier with the result Samuel Hwang achieved for me. I owe my life to Samuel for getting me a second chance when I thought it impossible. I searched through countless lawyers who seemed cold and uncaring until I found Sam who straight away put my mind at ease with his professionalism and kindness. He went above and beyond to provide me with the best possible outcome and for that I will be forever grateful.
