Do I need a solicitor for drug driving?

After being arrested on the roadside for having drugs in their system, many people think a drug-driving solicitor isn’t necessary, but they couldn’t be more wrong.

A solicitor who specialises in drug driving cases is the make or break when it comes to sentencing.

With their help and expertise, you could leave with a reduced sentence or none at all!

Here’s why you need a drug driving solicitor.

The role of a drug-driving solicitor

A drug-driving solicitor is there to defend your case and provide insight into what you can do to help your case, intending to get a lesser sentence.

By examining the circumstances of your arrest, they’re able to scrutinise the police procedure and measures they’ve taken to get you the outcome you deserve.

Benefits of a drug-driving solicitor

As the law for drug-diving cases isn’t as clear as those for drink driving, it’s important you have an expert fighting your corner to achieve the most favourable outcome.

Industry-specific knowledge

Opting for a drug-driving solicitor means you’ll benefit from industry-specific expertise.

They will have specialised in cases just like yours – meaning they know the law and the court process like the back of their hands.

This means they’ll know exactly what to look for to get you off the hook or achieve a mitigated sentence.

Loop-holes

Drug driving solicitors are well-versed in the process of collecting samples on the roadside.

Whether it’s challenging the blood results, the procedure, consent, or continuity, drug driving solicitors gather all evidence to help defend your case.

They can even find ‘special reasons’ as to why the drug appeared in the results – such as doctors failing to go through the side effects of a prescribed drug.

Support and advice

With such rich, in-depth knowledge of the offence, you’ll be able to gain valuable support and advice throughout the whole process.

Whether this is to plead guilty or not, or answers to questions about life after a conviction, they’ll be more than happy to put your mind at ease and help you out.

How to find the right drug driving solicitor for you

Before giving your money to the first solicitor you find online, there are a few things you need to consider, including:

Cost

It’s important to remember that cost doesn’t always reflect quality.

Take a look at how your potential drug-driving solicitor charges their clients – usually, it’s either hourly or a fixed fee based on the severity of the case – as well as any other additional fees they could charge later on down the line.

Experience and success rate

Having years of experience in the industry of dealing with drug-driving cases means they’ll have a deeper understanding of the law and more expertise in determining appropriate penalties.

Companies like MAJ Law have case studies on their website showing past cases and figures on how many they’ve won in the past few years.

Reputation

Do they have listed testimonials on their website that show positive results?

Have you heard from other people that they’re a reputable service?

It’s recommended that you look at reviews and case studies before making your decision. Here, you can look at cases just like yours to see how your soon-to-be solicitor will navigate it.
