How can I get my dangerous driving charges dropped?

>>>How can I get my dangerous driving charges dropped?

If you have been charged with dangerous driving, our criminal defence lawyers can work on your behalf to resolve your charges before you even go to trial. In some instances, we may even be able to resolve your dangerous driving charge in a manner that ensures that you do not receive a criminal criminal record. For example, in some instances we may be able to persuade the Crown to let you plea to the traffic offence of careless driving instead of running a trial for dangerous driving. By pleading to the less serious traffic offence, you will be able to ensure that you completely avoid a conviction for dangerous driving.

If your case is too serious to be resolved with a plea to a traffic offence, we may be able to prevent you from receiving a criminal conviction by doing a discharge application. That is, we will make an in-court application in favor of you being discharged either absolutely or conditionally from the offence. If we are successful, you will be able to say that you have not been convicted of dangerous driving. To learn more about discharges, please visit our FAQ on absolute and conditional discharges.

If a discharge is not appropriate, we can still advocate on your behalf to secure a sentence that restricts your liberty as little as possible. For example, we can advocate for sentences that involve a fine and some probation, or a fine alone. If prison is inevitable, we can also advocate for sentencing measures such as a conditional sentence order which will allow you to serve your sentence in the community or an intermittent jail sentence which will allow you to serve your jail sentence on weekends only. To find out what resolutions might be available for your dangerous driving charge, contact one of our criminal defence lawyers immediately.

Every case is different, and each client’s case must be evaluated and handled on its own merits.

All our 30-60 minute free consultations are conducted with one of our Criminal Defence Lawyers and include the following steps:

  1. Gathering of some personal information about you, such as your level of education, occupation, and citizenship status. This information can be crucial for building your defence and seeking a resolution with the Crown Prosecutor;
  2. Careful review of all documents you received from the police. We will explain what each document is, and what you can expect from and need to do for all upcoming appearances;
  3. Critical review of your recollection of events, and any supporting materials you choose to bring with you. This step helps us identify possible defences and avenues for further investigation; and
  4. Discussion of the court process, our fee structure, and what we can do to help.

Beyond these steps, we would be happy to tell you more about us, and answer any questions you may have. If you chose to retain us to help you, we will immediately provide an overview of what steps we plan to take next, and suggestions as to what you should do to improve your chances of a successful outcome.

For the free initial consultation to be as productive as possible, you should bring (or email in advance) the following materials:

  • A written statement (preferably typed) outlining your version of events;
  • All documents that you have been given by the court or by the police;
  • Any disclosure you have received;
  • Photo ID; and
  • Any supporting documents, such as photographs, emails, texts, phone records, medical records, receipts, etc.

Ideally, you will have prepared a copy of these materials for us to keep, but if not, we can always photocopy them during the consultation.

We offer flexible payment options and structures designed to meet our clients’ individual needs. Our lawyers accept all major credit cards, bank drafts, money orders, email money transfers (e-transfers) and, of course, cash.

If you decide to retain us after the free initial consultation, all we need is a retainer (down payment) to get started. The rest of the fee payments for the case can be spaced out over time. We can set you up on a monthly or bi-monthly payment plan, and process payments over the telephone or by email to make it easy for you.

The cost of a criminal defence lawyer will depend on several factors, including:

  1. how complex your case is,
  2. how serious the charges are, and
  3. how experienced the Criminal Defence lawyer is.

The fees of a competent Criminal Defence Lawyer will typically range into the thousands of dollars. The good news is that only a fraction of that amount is due initially. We offer flexible payment schedules so thefees can be paid in monthly installments.

Additionally, we offer flat rate fees, with no hidden costs. It is our standard practice to review all the costs during the free initial consultation. This means you will know exactly what our services cost at the outset and can make an informed decision about how to proceed.
