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.

Wanted to give a shout out to Maureen Currie who just got me off on weapons and drugs when the crown attorney was looking for 5 years minimum in the pen since I got a big criminal record. So stoked when she got me off and wanted to do something nice for her. Like in that pay it forward movie. She knows her stuff for sure and really had my back. My bud who had another lawyer wasn’t so lucky but the judge let me off.
Anyways, I would be using her again, tho I hope I don?t have to. She always got back to me when I called, except for once and I had to wait for 2 days to get a update. She is pretty tough but real nice when you get to know her. She’s not the cheapest but is the best I’ve seen. Wish I would have met her 8 charges ago.
