Criminal Driving Offences

Case Number: 22290272

Our client was charged following a late-night highway collision which caused bodily harm to the other driver. Our client sped up his vehicle once he passed a nearby town and immediately saw a vehicle crossing the highway in front of him. He slammed on his brakes at the last minute but was not able to avoid colliding with the vehicle. Following the collision, our client went to check on the other driver and immediately contacted police. When officers arrived, they located a witness who said our client was driving aggressively just prior to the incident. Based on this, the police arrested our client on the scene.

Upon being retained, we immediately requested disclosure and reviewed footage of the incident. We contacted the Crown Prosecutor and pointed out several problems with the investigation. Based on these, we were able to persuade the Crown to reach a resolution without proceeding to trial. As a result of these discussions, the Crown agreed that there was no reasonable likelihood of conviction and stayed the charges against our client.

Successful Result: Charge Stayed; No Criminal Record

Case Number: 55592591

Our client was pulled over when police discovered that his license plate was not attached to a vehicle. Our client quickly admitted that he did not have his drivers’ license or insurance with him. The officer investigated further and discovered that the vehicle was not insured, and our client had outstanding warrants on similar offences and for driving while criminally disqualified. Based on this, our client was arrested and charged with the criminal offence of driving while criminally disqualified and the traffic offences of driving with an unauthorized license plate, displaying an expired license plate and driving an uninsured vehicle on a highway.

Upon being retained, we requested disclosure and began resolution discussions with the Crown Prosecutor. We pointed out several issues with the investigation against our client and were able to successfully persuade the Crown to replace the criminal offence with a lesser traffic offence. The Crown also agreed to withdraw the other traffic charges against our client in exchange for a guilty plea to unlawfully driving an uninsured vehicle on a highway and driving without a license. As a result, our client paid a fine and avoided a criminal record.

Successful Result: Criminal Charge Amended to Traffic Offence; Traffic Offences Withdrawn; No Jail Time

Case Number: 25280106

Our client was charged with public mischief and failure to remain at the scene of an accident after he side-swiped another vehicle while going around a curve in the road. He then left the scene and later tried to report that his vehicle was stolen in order to avoid criminal charges. However, the victims were able to identify our client in a photo-lineup and he was subsequently charged.

Upon being retained, we ordered and reviewed our client’s disclosure and began negotiating with the Crown Prosecutor. Our client had a lengthy record and his main priority was to avoid a custodial sentence. We noted to the Crown that our client’s record was dated and un-related to the charges at hand. The Crown agreed and in exchange for a guilty plea to the hit-and-run charge, they withdrew the public mischief charge and only imposed a fine. Due to our strong advocacy skills, our client avoided any jail time.

Successful Result: Fine, No Jail Time

Case Number: 21280212

Our client was charged with failure to remain at the scene of an accident after he hit a pole, totaling his vehicle, and then left the scene on foot. The police were called and eventually located our client to charge him.

Upon being retained, we ordered our client’s disclosure. However, we were not satisfied with the disclosure provided and we submitted additional requests for further disclosure. When sufficient disclosure was not forthcoming, the Crown eventually agreed to withdraw the charge.

Successful Result: Charge Withdrawn

My lawyer was Dylan Finlay. He was excellent. His advice and professionalism secured me an extremely favorable... outcome in my case. Even more so than I originally thought possible due to some aggravating circumstances. I would highly recommend this firm. Dylan was available throughout the entire process by phone and email. I never once felt like my money was wasted, on the contrary. It was well spent. Going through the court process can be a tedious process. Dylan made the navigation much easier.read more

If you need a defence lawyer for anything then Dylan is the person you need to see. I was was facing a very difficult... case that involved assault with bodily harm which I was sure wasn't going to end well for me. However, Dylan presented my case to the judge at trial with great professionalism and with his great expertise in Law convinced the judge that I was not guilty. Throughout my whole ordeal, Dylan had been working behind the scene to built a solid defence for me. This really helped me out because it meant I did not have to get involved and have this problem control my life. Dylan relieved my stress and answered all my questions with the right answers to put me at ease. He was always available when ever I needed and would answer my emails right away.My words here cannot truly describe how great Dylan is, but I would highly highly highly recommend him to defend your case!read more
