Defending Against Drug And Gun Charges

If you are in possession of illegal drugs you could be charged with a drug related offence. Even private recreational use can result in criminal convictions. Further still, you could face the seizure of your house and property as “proceeds of crime” or as due to criminal activity going on there.

Drug-related charges generally include:

  • Possession
  • Production
  • Trafficking
  • The seizure of property by the government

The consequences of drug related offences can vary depending on the individual circumstances and the type and amount of drugs involved and the location of the offence.

The same can be said about guns. The courts treat such offences very seriously – and the punishment can mean years in jail.

Based in Toronto, Ontario, Leo Adler Law has assisted clients throughout Canada with defences that protect their rights, their property interests and their futures.
