Named the “Best Drug Lawyers in Sydney”

Australian Criminal Law Group is home to Joseph Correy, who is recognised as the best drug lawyer in Sydney. 

Common drug offences in NSW

Good lawyers for drug charges must have expert knowledge in all areas of criminal drug defence:

Drug Possession: No conviction or criminal record

The consequences of a drug conviction can be catastrophic for a person’s employment or travel plans. Such charges can be difficult to defend when drugs are literally found on a person. For this reason, you need expert advice from experienced drug lawyers like our team at Australian Criminal Law Group.

It is even possible to avoid a criminal record if you have been caught with illegal drugs and you chose to plead guilty. Section 10, non convictions, are possible for drug possession charges with the right legal team in your corner.  Australian criminal Law Group’s drug defence lawyers have proven it’s capable of even getting more serious possession charges reduced and no convictions recorded, where maximum penalties would otherwise have included imprisonment.

Drug Supply

Supply a prohibited drug is one of the most serious drug offences. Penalties for Supplying prohibited drugs vary widely depending on the type of drug and the quantity of drug the charge relates to but can include imprisonment of 2 years to up to life in prison.  

Our clients include members of large commercial drug enterprises, dial-a-dealer drivers, and first-time offenders charged with one-off supplies. Our criminal lawyers no how to beat drug supply charges. We have drugs supply charges dismissed without convictions, and without our clients being sentenced to prison.

We get the best result for you whether you a charged with a smaller supply offence like selling MDMA to friends at a music festival or, a serious drug offence like supplying a large commercial quantity of ice. 

Drug Importation

Importing drugs into Australia is a Commonwealth offence.  

Importation cases vary significantly in strength. Our lawyers know how to beat charges based on circumstantial and unreliable evidence. Our criminal lawyers tear into co-accused informants who roll on their friends and associates to save their own skin. We attack police experts who interpret conversations as being codes for importations. We challenge visual and voice identifications of people that police claim to be our clients. 

If our clients plead guilty, we get them the most lenient sentences. 

Bail for Drug Offences

Bail applications are high stakes because if unsuccessful, a person may stay in prison for weeks months or years, waiting for their case to finalise. This is especially the case for drug charges, which are often lengthy, involve multiple co-accused, and have voluminous briefs of evidence.

Being bail refused is a terrifying prospect for someone who has never been to prison and may not think they are tough enough to survive. Even for people who have been in and out of prison before, the prospect of being refused bail is confronting. It takes them away from their children, wives, family, and friends.

Australian Criminal Law Group have a team of lawyers that are experienced with bail applications for drug offences. Our drug lawyers are well versed in the requirements for a successful bail application, the supporting information needed and how to present the supporting evidence to ensure the applications success.
