Tang Law would like to extend our appreciation to all the staff in attendance for the great engagement during our presentation addressing visa options for women who are victims and/or survivors of family and domestic violence.

Most of the time, when drugs are found in a person’s possession, they are charged with a ‘possession’ offence and the amount of drugs found will be the determinative factor in how the charge is dealt with, what court it is heard in and what the applicable penalties are.

If you are facing a charge for the possession of illegal drugs (even a very small amount), then it is a common situation that police may believe that any cash found in your possession has come from selling drugs.
If you are injured or suffer any other kind of loss due to a crime being committed by someone else, then you may be able to claim compensation. This is also true for the families of an individual that is killed during the commission of a crime, in order to cover the expenses that they suffer after the loss of a loved one.
Congratulations to Peter Le, the winner of The Law Society of Western Australia's Lawyer of the Year Award 2021!
