What Clients Are Saying About Ashmans

Our team are experts in defending against drug offence charges

Ashmans is a very well respected national firm. We are featured in the Legal 500 guide, a listing of the UK’s most prestigious legal practices.

A conviction for possession or distribution of drugs can be one of the most personally and professionally damaging marks on your record. In order to ensure the best possible outcome for your case and to protect your rights and privacy at every stage of the proceedings, it is vital that you instruct a trained criminal defence solicitor at the earliest possible moment. Ashmans understands how important your reputation and your freedom are to you, and will do everything within our power to help you through this difficult time.

One of the most important services we can offer is helping you to understand the status of your case at this moment, and the implications of any allegations made against you.

For example, you may be awaiting a jury trial at the Crown Court. You may have been called to a magistrates court, or you may have only recently been charged with a particular offence. You may have only just been interviewed by the police, or you may be awaiting that first interview even now.

No matter where you are in this process, you need a trained solicitor to advise you of your rights, ensure that you are treated fairly and to ensure that you do not make any statements or take any actions which can be used against you in the future.

Advice from Ashmans Solicitors

The number one piece of advice we can give to anyone accused of a drug offence is: Retain the services of a specialist Criminal Defence solicitor as soon as possible, tell them absolutely everything and follow their advice to the letter.

Your Ashmans’ Criminal Defence Team Will Typically Start By:

Most accusations relating to drug offences centre around the possession, distribution or production of illegal drugs, supply, conspiracy to further these and similar offences.

Class A Drugs are typically the most dangerous. These include both ‘crack’ and powder cocaine, heroin, LSD and MDMA etc. Offences relating to class A drugs are almost always dealt with at the Crown court, as they often result in lengthy custodial sentences if one is convicted.

Class B Drugs are considered slightly less serious, and convictions for an offence linked to class B drugs are less likely to lead to long prison terms. Non-custodial sentences are more common. Class B drugs include ketamine, cannabis and amphetamines, among others.

Class C drugs are often available via prescription. Custodial sentences for offences related to class C drugs are rare, but can occur if large amounts were involved or if the operation was commercially based.
It is never too late to instruct a criminal solicitor. If you have already been arrested, interviewed or charged, having a specialist Criminal Defence solicitor on your side can be a great help to protect your rights, and make sure you are treated fairly by the authorities.It is never too late to instruct a criminal solicitor. If you have already been arrested, interviewed or charged, having a specialist Criminal Defence solicitor on your side can be a great help to protect your rights, and make sure you are treated fairly by the authorities.
This cannot be overstated. Especially in the early stages of an investigation, the police will interview witnesses and even suspects without advising them of their right to have a solicitor present to assist them.
