Calgary Drug Charge Legal Defense | Substance Abuse Defence Service Updated

The legal firm’s expanded service now encompasses a careful examination of undercover police procedures that could have preceded a client’s drug charges. Bitzer Criminal Law’s goal is to determine whether they have been handled properly and in accordance with judicial provisions, including search warrants and wiretaps.

Bitzer Criminal Law now helps substance abuse offenders charged with possessing, selling, trafficking, or manufacturing drugs reduce or remove their penalty that may include long-term prison sentences or asset forfeiture. The practice, which is headed by Steven Bitzer, wants to make sure its clients are fully aware of their rights and their case.

Irrespective of ownership, possessing illegal drugs is prohibited in Canada under the Controlled Drug and Substances Act. This means that it must be proven that the defendant was carrying prohibited substances in person or kept them at their property and that they knew that the substance was illegal at the time of the arrest.

As part of their legal representation process, Bitzer Criminal Law will explore whether procedures surrounding their client’s charge did not impinge on their privacy and whether the protocols for the defendant’s arrest were strictly followed. The law firm says it’s important for offenders to immediately call a lawyer and abstain from giving statements to the police.

A company representative says, “In complex drug cases it is crucial to have a highly skilled lawyer on your side. Bitzer Criminal Law has decades of experience in these matters and he will ensure your rights are respected and that you receive a fair and robust defence.”

Aside from drug charges, Bitzer Criminal Law also offers counsel and assistance for Calgary residents charged with impaired driving. Mr. Bitzer walks clients through every stage of their DUI case utilizing their knowledge of the recently introduced Immediate Roadside Sanctions Program. He advises clients on the potential consequences of DUI, such as fines, driving prohibitions, possible jail time, and vehicle confiscation.

The firm also helps clients accused of fraud and property crimes, domestic violence and assault, as well as those charged with sexual assault.
