Being Charged with a Criminal Offence
If you have been investigated, arrested, or charged with a criminal offence, the first steps have already been taken to criminally prosecute you. The government will now use its immense resources to prove that you are guilty of a crime. Even if you don’t ultimately end up going to jail, any criminal conviction can have life-lasting consequences. A criminal sentence can lead to loss of employment, loss of family and friends, loss of travel privileges, and ultimately loss of personal self-worth.
In times like these, it is important to remember that you are presumed innocent until and unless your guilt is proven beyond a reasonable doubt in court.
The Best Defence
Navigating the criminal justice system can be overwhelming. Compared to the unlimited resources available to the government, a successful defence can seem like an insurmountable task. You only have one chance to get it right, and one chance to pick the right legal team to help you do that. This is where we can help.
