A criminal record can have lifelong ramifications. Choose a criminal lawyer with the experience and commitment to provide quality and thorough legal representation
A criminal record can restrict a person’s ability to obtain or keep employment, pursue advanced education, become a Canadian citizen, remain in Canada, and travel. For these reasons alone, a person charged with an offence should always consult a criminal lawyer before the first court appearance. Many people have made the mistake of pleading guilty without legal advice - just to “get it over with” and only later find out the serious problems associated with having a criminal record.
While a successful criminal defence involves careful preparation and research, many cases can be quickly resolved behind the scenes by negotiation to convince the Crown to withdraw the charges by resolution resulting in fair sentencing – sometimes without a criminal record. As we move forward in your defence, Ms. Currie will be able to help you decide whether it would be in your best interests to proceed to trial or to attempt to resolve the charge you are facing.

Is your son or daughter facing criminal charges?
We have considerable experiences in defending youth charges in Ontario. Don’t leave the important step of a bail hearing for yourself or a family member in the hands of an inexperienced lawyer.
