Birds Solicitors Criminal Defense Lawyers, Wandsworth, London, SW18

We specialise in criminal defence work and deal with general crime, serious fraud and a large amount of appellate work and CCRC applications.

We deal with no other discipline but crime.

Serious crime

Drugs Offences

We have acted in numerous cases involving serious drugs offences. Such cases often involve a great deal of surveillance evidence and require forensic examination of telephone records and tachographs.

As an example, some of the cases we have acted in include:-

  • A man who was acquitted of importation of a large quantity of class A drugs hidden  in the door of his hired car;
  • The production of class B drugs on an industrial scale from an isolated property in Kent;
  • Distribution of huge amounts of cannabis through warehouses in the Midlands
  • A very complex and sophisticated importation of a very large amount of class A drugs through the Isle of Wight
Steven Bird has lectured on behalf of the LCCSA on defending serious drug cases and on the confiscation provisions which arose as a result of conviction in such cases.

Drugs cases remain a part of the firm's staple diet at all levels of seriousness. The sentences imposed in relation to cases involving large amounts of drugs and in particular class A drugs mean that such cases require considerable expertise.
