If you have been caught with drugs or arrested for a drug related offence (buying, selling, producing, exporting, importing), you will find yourself in a legal system that is built on aggression and intimidation with the goal of getting you to plead guilty.
Calling Michael Juskey immediately is your best chance at avoiding a criminal record and a long prison sentence.
Your first conversation with Michael with be a no charge strategy session. You will learn how the legal system works and what options may be available to you.
Once you retain Michael as your lawyer, he becomes your partner, confidant, and of course legal representative. He will get to know you as a person – your personal and professional life, your relationships, and your values and beliefs. The better Michael knows you, the more effectively he can defend you.
Michael’s skill as a criminal lawyer allows him to determine whether the police have infringed any of your constitutional rights. These rights include freedom from unreasonable search and seizure, arbitrary detention or imprisonment and the right to counsel upon detention or arrest (the police must inform you of this right, provide access to counsel and refrain from eliciting evidence until you have spoken with counsel or validly waived this right). In many cases Michael’s clients have had charges dropped or reduced as a result of unlawful police procedures.
Even if you are found to be in possession, sale or distribution of narcotics, there are a number of defenses available such as:
It wasn’t you. The onus is on the prosecution to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you committed the crime of which you are accused. Can the Crown be sure that it was you who possessed or trafficked the drug(s) and not someone else? If there is any doubt about who was in possession of, selling or transporting drugs, you should be found not guilty.
