A Certified Specialist On Your Side

Our experienced Oshawa drug charge lawyers have a proven track record representing clients in both straightforward and complex drug cases. We have defended (or been retained by) clients facing a broad range of charges, including drug offences coupled with other criminal offences. The lawyers at Risen, Inch & Fraser are very knowledgeable, and one lawyer has received the Certified Specialist designation from the Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC). Regardless of how complex your situation may seem, we are able to provide the objective, straightforward advice that you require.

Drug Possession

The simplest and most common drug charge is the possession of a controlled substance. In order to secure a conviction, the prosecution must prove that the suspected substance is actually controlled pursuant to the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act and that you (or the defendant) possessed the requisite knowledge. This not only includes being aware of the presence of the substance, but may also refer to a defendant's suspicion that the substance was in fact illegal — and that nothing was done to determine whether the substance was illegal. As your defence lawyer, it is our job to protect your interests and work to get the charges removed.

More Serious Drug Crimes

Very serious drug crimes, such as drug trafficking, drug cultivation and production of a controlled substance, carry with them potentially severe penalties, especially when there are other aggravating factors related to the allegations. We are knowledgeable of investigation procedures used by police in advancing drug offence charges, and know how to use effective defence strategies to protect the rights of our clients.
