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.

My son was facing serious criminal charges. Maureen was thoroughly professional. It went to trial and she was very prepared and showed excellent examination skills. While she was even handed with police she showed judge that he was mistaken or maybe dishonest. He was found innocent and judge even commented on her incisive cross examination. She was pricier than another lawyer I was going to hire but must say that her hours were very fair and as a family we more than got what we paid for. Must say that she seemed to work hard for us and she believed in him. He now won’t have a criminal record thanks to her. She went above and beyond for us so I wanted somehow to let others know. It can be so confusing to hire a criminal lawyer.
