Criminal Law

Being charged with a criminal offence can have life-altering consequences that can have an impact on your freedom, your reputation and your ability to earn a living. An effective criminal defence can mean the difference between a prison sentence and a reduced or dismissed charge.

Traffic tickets – from speeding to careless driving to disobeying a stop sign – can impact your driving freedom. These and other traffic tickets result in demerit points, licence suspensions, hefty fines and even jail time. On top of that, they can dramatically raise your insurance rates or make you uninsurable.
