Vancouver Customs Searches Lawyer
If your vehicle was searched while you were attempting to drive across the border, or if your luggage was searched after you landed at the airport, and you were subsequently charged with a crime, it is important to hire a criminal defence lawyer immediately. You have no time to waste with regard to protecting your rights, your freedom or your future.
I am Michael R. Shapray, an experienced Vancouver customs searches lawyer. I represent people charged with border offences when they were driving across the United States-Canada border, as well as clients who were charged with crimes after search and seizure by customs at the airport. Such crimes can include:
- Drug trafficking
- Child pornography possession
Defending Clients Against Customs and Border Searches in British Columbia
Customs and border agents have expanded rights to search you and your property, which means that you have fewer opportunities to argue that the search and seizure was illegal. While this can make these cases difficult, they are not impossible. An experienced criminal defence lawyer who is willing to work hard for you may be all you need to properly attack the charges against you.
I am a client-oriented practitioner. I keep the number of my clients low, so I can dedicate myself fully to preparing and presenting comprehensive defence strategies. I will put as much time and energy as possible into evaluating your case and protecting your rights.
