Any criminal charge or related offence is serious. Even when the charge is minor, navigating through the justice system can be difficult. You may face pressure to plead guilty simply to make it “go away” or accept a peace bond or other diversion plan. In some cases those are good options, but you need to understand the consequences of these decisions and you need the outcome that’s right for you. When the charge is more severe the outcome can be truly life-altering. That’s why you need and deserve a lawyer who takes what’s happening to you as seriously as you do.
I defend clients in all criminal matters, from first arrest to final appeal. At every stage you deserve the best defence possible, and I’m not satisfied until you get it. In some cases that means fighting tooth and nail through the full trial process. In other cases it may be simply making sure you get the best deal possible and an outcome you can live with. In every case I’ll lay out the options as we go, and I’ll make recommendations but it’s up to you to decide how you want to proceed.
No one wants to need a criminal defence lawyer. Just like no one wants to need a mechanic. But when you find you need that help, no matter how or why it happened, you want someone you can depend on. So please don’t delay – consultation is free and my rates are flexible to your situation.
