Hi. I'm looking to have someone represent me for a trafficking charge for cocaine into Australia from the United States. I have a court date in 2 months in Sydney. Was looking to get an idea of pricing and administration costs for the case. Also where would I get information about the maximum and minimum sentence for this amount of substance ie how what does the law state is the minimum and maximum allowable sentence and fine.
Hi mate, this is very serious and we'd be happy to chat free of charge to give you guidance. Typically, you should consider our advice before entering a plea. We'd need more information about the facts of the case and how you were caught. We'd also need to know more about you and your background.
If this was a guilty plea, we'destimate $7,000.00 + GST for sentencing including reps to police to negotiate the charges, psych report, pre-sentence report, extensive submissions, character reference material and all incidental mitigation work.
If this was adefended hearing youwould be looking at $20K +.

Suggested way forward
Speak to a lawyer about your case and get an idea of whether you plead guilty or not. If the earlier, start preparing mitigation material and consider negotiating the charges with police.
