Skilled Drug Crime Defense Lawyer in Vancouver

I work aggressively to minimize the long-term consequences of any criminal allegations, including:

  • Unlawful use of drug paraphernalia
  • Unlawful drug possession of controlled substances or legend drugs
  • Manufacturing a controlled substance, including manufacturing marijuana
  • Possession of controlled substances with intent to deliver
  • Delivery of controlled substances
  • Maintaining a drug dwelling

I will pursue all potential avenues that may lead to the charges being dismissed. I will evaluate the legality of the stop, detention, arrest, search and interrogation leading up to the charges you face. If police broke the law and violated your constitutionally protected rights, I will work to have any evidence collected as a result of this violation excluded from court. At the law office of Matthew Hoff, “technicality” is not a four letter word.

Even if there was a lawful basis for the stop, I will fully examine any defenses to the criminal charges. As an experienced criminal defense attorney, I am familiar with the potential defenses, and can effectively argue these defenses to a judge, jury, or prosecutor when appropriate.

In some cases, the best options may involve aggressive litigation. I am a trial attorney, and I presume that when I am handling your drug crimes representation, we will be going to trial. If we are able to secure a favorable resolution before trial, then the choice to accept it is up to you. In the absence of a favorable negotiation I will be ready to effectively protect your rights in the courtroom.

For clients who are not inclined to litigate their cases, or for the clients who are interested in a “big picture” analysis before making any crucial decision regarding their case, I am here to assist you with a thorough, honest assessment of your case. I also offer examination of all options including drug court, diversion, Family Offender Sentencing Alternative and the Drug Offender Sentencing Alternative.
