It was my first time in court for driving charges. These guys literally stepped in and fixed the whole thing up for me. They kept it simple, explained everything, and all I had to do was turn up. They did absolutely everything else. Legends!

Have You Been Charged With A Drug Offence On The Gold Coast?

It is important to take allegations of drug charges under Queensland law seriously. A wide range of offences carry penalties ranging from drug diversion programs to lengthy prison sentences.

The earlier you seek legal advice, the better off you will be in the long run. Even a small possession charge can have serious consequences for your career and future travel plans.

Contacting Garde Wilson Gold Coast criminal lawyers, as soon as you’ve been charged with a drug offence, can be the difference between a hefty fine or even jail time, and your freedom.

You need to know your rights during a police investigation. We can represent you if you are charged to appear in court or in the Crime and Corruption Commission. Our team knows how to prepare drug cases for trial, and we have defended clients successfully against drug charges in courts at every level in every jurisdiction.

We will be with you every step of the way. We will deal with the police and the courts. We will explain the drug laws and court processes in plain English. We will listen and work with you to formulate a realistic plan. As well as helping you with rehabilitation programs, screening and psychological reports, we can also assist you with plea bargaining if you are charged with drugs under Queensland law.

Even if this is your first charge, don’t fool yourself into thinking you can represent yourself in court. Your future isn’t worth risking or playing roulette with. Contact Garde Wilson Gold Coast Criminal Lawyers immediately to get the legal representation you deserve.
