Election and Plea

Whether you are released from custody, or detained in custody, you will have to navigate the criminal court system like the thousands of other people in your predicament. There are several important steps that you must remember to follow, and several procedures that you should be acquainted with before you go into court, although one of our criminal defence lawyers should be quite capable of doing most of the things described for you. Most importantly, until and unless you have retained a lawyer, do not forget to attend court as specified in your release documents. The following is a listing of terms and procedures you should familiarized yourself with if you want to be informed about what occurs at this stage of the criminal proceedings:

  • Fingerprinting
  • First Appearance
  • Crown Election
  • Accused Election
  • Ordering Disclosure
  • Early Case Resolution
  • Duty Counsel
  • Legal Aid
  • Plea

Although some of these terms may be familiar, it is important to obtain proper legal advise on each point.

Glowing Reviews From Our Clients

Charges from outside of Calgary near Okotoks: Michael had helped me through this time with getting both charges dropped. Michael has been very thoughtful and professional throughout the tough times. He is the Top Lawyer in the Calgary area. I highly recommended him to anyone facing traffic charges.

D.P.

I would definitely recommend Michael Oykhman and his team. Not only were my charges dropped but the professionalism and empathy I was shown gave you confidence knowing someone was working just as hard as you would be to obtain the best possible result. For anyone looking for lawyer he is one of the best hands down.
