Drugs : Legal Highs

Here at Matthew Berlow, a large amount of our work comes from clients charged with drug offences. With a vast amount of experience in this specialism, our team at skilled at representing those expected to stand trial, and have helped to successfully defend everyone from first-time offenders to international drug importers.

Working around the clock to keep our clients out of trouble, we offer a vast array of related services, from attendance at police interviews to representation in a criminal court. Demonstrating the same degree of competence and professionalism in all scenarios, we’re the lawyers you want to have at your side.

Increasingly, those who come to us are doing so because of offences relating to legal highs. This is because of a change in the law that came into force on the 26th May 2016. Converting new psychoactive substances (NSPs) into illegal drugs, this made it so that those importing or possessing NSPs with intent to supply or share them could face up to seven years in prison and a significant fine too.

Those charged with an offence relating to legal highs thus run the risk of severe punishments under contemporary Scottish law – unless they have a skilled and expert lawyer who can represent them in court and successfully make their case.

At Matthew Berlow, we have a talented team who can do just that. With an extensive portfolio of similar cases to showcase the successfulness of our methods, we know how best to defend you against such charges, and will do our utmost to turn things to your advantage.

Specialising in the cases of those accused of either the importation or supply of legal highs, we can work on your behalf to make a strong argument in your defence – one that will hopefully help you to avoid charges, and lessen any sentence you might face.

That’s why we recommend that if you or a family member has been charged, you get in touch with us now. Friendly, professional, and sympathetic to your plight, we’ll immediately turn our talents to your case, exhibiting a thoroughness and skill that means we will miss nothing that could be of use to you.

Keeping you informed and up to date throughout, we’ll make certain that you’re never left feeling out of the loop, and are fully appraised of the progress of your case at all times, in the hopes that we can make it all a little less daunting.
