Assaults, Theft, DUI Law, Impaired Driving and Criminal Law Lawyer
If you wish to book an appointment please feel at ease to telephone me personally at 905-273-3322 or 1-877-273-3322. I do my best to answer the telephone personally. Leanne, my clerk, will provide you with possible dates for an in-person or video consultation. My telephone is automatically forwarded to wherever I am between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. weekdays as well as much of the weekend. 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.
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. Please download and fill out the free Canadian Impaired driving Checklist and the free Drinking Driver's Worksheet.
If you, your son, or your daughter have been charged with a criminal offence you will want to know your options and about the long-term impact of an adult or Youth Court record on employment, travel, and reputation. Adult records and Youth Court records don't just disappear, they last for many years. Parents should complete the free Young Offenders Act - Parent's Page Questionnaire before meeting with a lawyer.
If you need a will and/or powers of attorney you should download and fill out the free Questionaires and Inventory for Wills and Powers of Attorney before booking an appointment.
If you cannot visit my office during office hours, we can schedule a video conference meeting. I use iPhone4 Face Time, iChat, and Skype. If we are booking a video consultation we will need your documents by email or fax (905-270-0130) in advance of our meeting.
Initial consultations in-person or by video are scheduled for one hour at a fee of $200 plus HST. We will ask for your credit card number at the time of booking together with other identification information.
I do not accept Legal Aid certificates.
