Vancouver Drug Importation Defence Lawyer
British Columbia has more than 2,000 kilometres of border that it shares with the United States. Vancouver is a major port city through which drugs have been imported for decades. Canadian law enforcement authorities are serious about stemming the tide of illegal drugs flowing into Canada via the U.S. border, through airports and through overseas shipping.
If you are under investigation or have been charged with importing drugs into Canada, you need a highly skilled defence lawyer on your side. I am Michael R. Shapray, a drug importation defence lawyer with offices in Vancouver and Surrey. I know how to handle these highly complex border drug importation cases and I do not back down in the face of prosecutors. Over my years of practice, I have built an impressive record of success in drug cases, and I am ready to defend you.
Is there a warrant out because law enforcement believes you smuggle drugs? Are you under investigation for narcotics possession while crossing the border? Arrested for possessing drugs while crossing the Canadian border?
Experience Handling a Broad Range of Drug Importation Charges
I defend Canadians, Americans and clients from other countries accused of importing drugs into Canada. Call me if you are charged with trafficking or importing any type of drugs, including:
- Prescription drugs
Whether you were driving across the border in your own vehicle and had a small amount of marijuana in the car, or were stopped carrying a large quantity of drugs, I will give your case the attention it deserves. I am aggressive in defending my clients, yet extremely thorough and strategic in my preparation.
If you are arrested for a drug offence while coming into Canada, you will be charged in Canada by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and subject to vehicle and drug seizure as part of a smuggle bust. I have been working in the Canadian criminal justice system my whole career and I can provide you with the strong, intelligent defence demanded by drug importation charges.
