WE CAN SIMPLIFY THE PROCESS FOR YOU
Many of our clients don’t understand the criminal process or understand what they are supposed to do. When you turn to us, our criminal lawyers will:
- Explain the steps required, in terms of which court dates you must attend, when we will meet with the Crown and/judge, and when your trial or other hearing may be scheduled.
- Explain how the criminal law process may differ for you if you are a youth charged with a crime.
- Go over the evidence against you and explain your charges.
- Discuss possible legal consequences of your conviction, which vary greatly depending on the seriousness and classification of your charge (e.g., theft and fraud versus robbery charges, or drunk driving and drug crimes).
- Go over some of the more serious consequences, which may include loss of employment, problems travelling abroad, a criminal record, vulnerable sector searches, probation and conditions, DNA orders, weapons prohibitions and much more.
- Discuss social consequences of your charge, such as the possible social stigma of domestic violence, charges involving child sex and pornography or sexual assault charges.
- Go over your side of the story in light of the evidence gathered against you.
- Discuss fees and possible strategies.
- Answer your questions.
- Explain what you can do to help your own case.
Once we have decided to work together, our job is to use our experience and skill to protect you and get you the best resolution possible, whether this involves negotiation with the Crown or going to trial.
