She is known for her fearless representation of clients charged with serious criminal law offences, close personal attention and commitment in providing a thorough criminal defence whether it’s:

If you are charged with a criminal offence, Maureen Currie will vigorously defend you.
A criminal record can have lifelong ramifications.
It 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.
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 by one of the methods to avoid a criminal record » While a successful criminal defence involves careful preparation and research, many cases can often be quickly resolved behind the scenes by negotiation, to address criminal charges as simply and inexpensively as possible.

Criminal Law Testimonial:
I recently obtained Ms. Currie's services pertaining to a Criminal offence. I found her to be quite capable in all aspects of Criminal law. Especially since the Crown was pushing for a criminal record , probation and more. Ms. Currie Pushed back and got the Crown to withdraw all charges. I would not hesitate for a moment to use her services again, if I was ever in need. However, I truly hope that will never come to pass. Thank You, Maureen.
