One Of The UK’s Top Drug Offence Criminal Defence Barristers and QCs
As one of the UK’s top drug charge defence barristers, Michael Wolkind QC is a highly sought trial lawyer for his famed skill with juries and appeal judges.
He has appeared as a QC in numerous large drug cases. These have included trials with quantities of over a ton of various Class A and Class B substances.
In the more complex allegations of conspiracies to import, evidence will often centre on telephone calling connections, SMS and WhatsApp messaging, ANPR car tracking, and DNA.
He has dealt with Class A substances of every type. Perhaps cocaine, heroin, LSD, and MDMA (Ecstasy) have been the most common. Opium as well.
He has also acted in other matters where Class B products, mostly cannabis or amphetamine have been involved. In more recent years, there have been charges relating to synthetic cannabis, and other “designer drugs”.
Michael has also represented National Champions prosecuted for their connection with Class C steroids.
A conviction for even simple possession can affect a person’s employment and entry into other countries. Cannabis is not the only “plant” ever involved. Where appropriate, police officers will be challenged about the finding of the unlawful drug.
Michael is currently instructed in a trial, likely to be heard in 2021, calculated as the most valuable ever drugs conspiracy in this jurisdiction. The quantities of the drugs imported are said to be worth over £3 billion.
