Please feel at ease to telephone me personally at 905-273-3322 or 1-877-273-3322. People, including other lawyers, call me all the time to ask basic questions about what to do next. I do my best to answer the telephone personally. Stay on the line and your call will be forwarded to my office, my cell phone, or my home. If there is no answer or the line is busy please please leave a message by following the directions on my telephone line. I will get back to you as soon as I can. I spend a fair quantity of time in Court and I can't leave my cell phone on in the courtroom.
If you or a family member have been charged with assault you will have a lot of questions about when the person charged can return home. You will also have a lot of questions about the role of the complainant and the surety. A surety plays a very important role in supervising the accused pending the completion of the matter and may need independent legal advice.
If you or a family member have been charged with shoplifting or other theft you will have questions about diversion programmes, lawsuits by the complainant, and trespass notices.
If you have been charged with impaired driving you would probably like to know whether or not you have a reasonable prospect of defending the charge. You'll want to know about the severe and expensive consequences if you opt for a Stream A Guilty Plea. Phone me at 905-273-3322 or 1-877-273-3322 and we'll set up an appointment. Bring all your papers with you, as well as any disclosure or video that you have received.
