Convictions on drug-related charges may result in serious personal and professional hardships. You may lose your job, be expelled from school or experience alienation from your family and friends.
My name is Michel Fontaine, and I have a proven record of successfully defending clients charged with drug-related offences. With so much at stake, one drug conviction is one too many.
Drug Offences Affecting Travel
If you have a drug conviction, travel to many countries can be extremely problematic. Even a conviction for simple possession of marijuana may bar entry into a country, including the United States.
It can take years to obtain a pardon only to discover, for example, that the U.S. border does not recognize the pardon. Additionally, U.S. waiver forms are extremely time-consuming and can take months to complete.
At my firm, Michel Fontaine, Criminal Lawyer, I have the knowledge and expertise to ensure that you are given the best defence possible for drug charges. My goal is to reduce the charges or have them dismissed altogether, and to avoid records that may bar you entry when travelling abroad.
Since being admitted to the Alberta bar in 1991, I have represented clients charged with all types of drug-related crimes, including:
- Drug trafficking: the sale, cultivation, or distribution of illegal substances
- Drug possession: having drugs on your person at the time arrest
I have represented people charged with drug crimes throughout Edmonton, Alberta, and surrounding cities. No matter what drug charges you face, I can assist you in attaining the best possible results. My firm will work tirelessly to avoid a drug conviction.
